Evidently Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick are much cooler than we once thought.
Wild-card weekend saw the Bills rout the Patriots in a 47-17 final. Afterword, a report surfaced that Belichick headed toward Buffalo’s locker room and New England’s bench boss spent a long while there.
Per NFL Network’s Mike Giaradi, Belichick went therre after his press conference for “an extended period.”
In doing so, Belichick shows that it’s all water under the bridge with McDermott after earlier this season.
After a 14-10 Pats win in Orchard Park between these two teams, McDermott downplayed Belichick’s impact. He later went on to clarify that he meant no disrespect by the comments toward Belichick.
Considering McDermott would very much be aware Belichick was there in his team’s locker room, signs point to a mutual respect being shared. Belichick and McDermott sharing this moment behind closed doors comes around the same time a few players were noticed on the field sharing doing the same.
Including that bunch was Bills quarterback Josh Allen clearly encouraging Patriots rookie QB Mac Jones.
While fans off the field in Buffalo and Boston might not like each other, it looks like the two teams have much respect toward one another.
For more on Belichick’s trip to the Bills locker room, here’s a discussion on it from The Pat McAfee Show this week:
