It’s casual Sunday in Carolina, at least for Bill Belichick.
The New England Patriots head coach chose comfort over style for his bus ride to Bank of America Stadium, sporting a very on-brand sweatsuit.
The sleeves: cut off.
The pant legs: rolled up and asymmetrical, with the left hovering near the knee and the right hanging down near the top of his mid-calf white sock.
In other words, classic Belichick.
Belichick’s Patriots are seeking their first three-game win streak since October 2019. They knocked off the New York Jets in Week 7 and Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8 to improve to 4-4 on the season.
Their opponent Sunday: Stephon Gilmore and the 4-4 Panthers, who have struggled offensively of late but boast one of the NFL’s top defenses.
