Bill Belichick threw a challenge flag on a meaningless play and tried to catch it with hilarious disinterest

If you don’t have haters, you aren’t poppin’.

The New England Patriots might be up 35-7, but damn it, they’re going to play the game until the end. That includes challenging any questionable play.

After Eric Decker made this catch with 4:15 to go in the game, Belichick and the Patriots decided to challenge it, despite their 28-point lead. The play would be upheld, and the Titans would have their first down at the 34-yard line.

But the best part might not even be the fact that the Patriots challenged the play. It’s how Belichick threw the flag.

You’ll never see a coach be more disgusted with having to go through the showmanship of throwing the red flag than Belichick was right then and there. He’s appalled that he even has to go through such a motion.

Belichick and the Patriots are all robots that are only concerned with beating your team, and beating them by the widest margin. Unfortunately for the Patriots, it didn’t matter, because Corey Davis would get his second touchdown on the evening.
