Report: Bill Belichick Motivated Patriots Using Week 1 Post-Win Dolphins Quotes

1,425

The New England Patriots reportedly were reminded of their Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins wherever they turned in Foxboro this week.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick posted quotes from Dolphins players following Miami’s Week 1 win over New England in screens around the Gillette Stadium facility, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday.

It’s unclear which quotes Belichick used, but Schefter reported they were “about how Patriots quit, about how they took it to them.”

The Patriots lost 33-20 to the Dolphins in the season opener after taking a 20-10 lead into halftime. The Dolphins ran over the Patriots, rushing for 191 yards on 38 carries. The Patriots have since turned their season around and have a 10-3 record going into Sunday’s game against the 7-6 Dolphins, who are fighting for a playoff spot.

A Patriots win Sunday would clinch an AFC East title.
