Bill Belichick had the perfect game plan for the terrible weather conditions in Buffalo.
Before the game, we saw several videos showing the awful conditions in Buffalo that included wind gusts of up to 50 mph.

Instead of throwing the ball against the wind, Belichick decided to run the ball down the Bills’ throats. The Patriots ended up running the ball 46 times while only throwing the pass three times in the team’s win.
The Patriots won tonight completing 2 of 3 passes for 19 yards. The 2 pass completions are tied for their fewest in a single game in franchise history.

Belichick seemed to enjoy winning this particular game more than others because he was actually seen smiling on the sidelines.

Fans had hilarious reactions to Belichick’s ingenious running game plan.
Bill walked into McDaniels office and slammed a 1950’s playbook on his desk and walked out.

Bill Belichick clowned Sean McDermott tonight. Don't get it twisted. Beat him in his house and had his rook QB throw it 3 times. What a joke.
