NBC announces “Do Your Job, Part 2” documentary about 2016 Patriots

New, comments

The one-hour special will premier four days prior to the season opener.

The 2014 New England Patriots played one of the most memorable seasons in NFL history; one that was capped by a tremendous playoff run en route to a victory in Super Bowl XLIX. As a result of its success, the team was not only awarded with yet another Lombardi Trophy but two television specials as well.

“America's Game” showed the 2014 season from the perspective of three players: Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Devin McCourty. The NFL Films production “Do Your Job”, meanwhile, offered a look through the eyes of the Patriots' coaching staff – from the Kansas City debacle to the playoff thriller against the Baltimore Ravens to the Super Bowl.

And while the former was a certainty to return this year as well, after all there are “America's Game” episodes for every championship team, the latter was not – until today: According to CSNNE, NBC will air an hour-long special on September 3, 7:00 p.m. ET titled “Do Your Job, Part 2”.

The documentary will again focus on the season from the coaches' perspective and feature interviews with head coach Bill Belichick and other members of his staff. Boston native Edward Norton will narrate the special, which will be re-aired on NFL Network on September 6 at 8:00 p.m. ET.

September 6 will also be the day when two other Patriots-related specials will make their television debut: The above-mentioned “Americas's Game” will premier after “Do Your Job, Part 2” at 9:00 p.m. ET and will be followed by an “NFL Top 10” about quarterback Tom Brady's greatest games. The climax of the 2016 season – Super Bowl LI – will certainly be among them.
