Bill Belichick changed into a hoodie at halftime, but the Patriots lost anyway

The first half of the AFC Championship game didn't go exactly as planned for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots, having scored only nine points. And while they can't exactly go back and change their playcalling for the first and second quarter, Belichick can change something — his trademark hoodie.

In the second half, Belichick swapped his trusty ol' blue hoodie for a gray one, which is the first time that he has worn that color all year. This is definitely an act of superstition. It worked for TCU's Gary Patterson, so it might have worked!

After all, Belichick has never lost wearing gray in the playoffs. Advanced stats! Unfortunately, the Patriots lost so the hoodie isn't all it's cracked up to be.
