One of the most frustrating things this season has simply been that this New England Patriots team doesn’t seem to know how to win these types of games, which is obviously a big change given what we’re accustomed to around here during Bill Belichick’s tenure.
In the past, what’s set Belichick’s teams apart from everyone else is that they’ve always been clubs that came up with big plays in critical moments. They didn’t commit or make stupid mental mistakes in those same points of games.
Simply stated, they’ve just never been a team that’s beat themselves. However, that just hasn’t been the case this season.
