Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is giving his team a break during the bye week. After the Patriots dominating 41-14 victory over the Dolphins on Monday Night Football, Belichick told his players they're off until Thursday.
Belichick was awfully excited after the game seen hugging and high-fiving plays.
Patriots fans over at SB Nation's Pats Pulpit are saying, heading into the bye week, this was a significant win for the Patriots.
Big road win, big division win. The Patriots outplayed the Dolphins on offense, defense, and special teams. They outcoached the Dolphins. And for once, they showed the energy that we're used to seeing from the Patriots, but haven't seen in quite some time. That's one hell of a way to head into the bye week, don't you think?
Indeed it is as the Patriots finally get a big win on the road. They had been struggling on the road prior to this game but dominated the second half of this game.
