FOXBORO, Mass. — Bill Belichick was atypically jovial during his postgame press conference on Sunday, and for good reason. His Patriots scored a dramatic, narrative-changing 29-25 win over the Buffalo Bills.

But there was one question that drew his ire.

Hours before kickoff at Gillette Stadium, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Belichick received a “lucrative” contract extension last offseason. The news arrived amid mounting calls for New England to fire its legendary head coach.

Well, a reporter tried to ask Belichick about his contract after Sunday’s game — and it didn’t go well.

Reporter: “There’s been a lot of discussion as of late about your contract extension. Is there anything you’d like to share with Patriots fans about where that stands?”

Belichick: “Yeah, I never talk about my contract. Focused on the game, trying to focus on Buffalo. Then I’ll focus on Miami. You can count on that.”
