With a win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, the New England Patriots earned a first round bye for the eighth consecutive season. However despite Week 17 still being a must win game to decide the first or second seed, the team put a pause on the regular season finale next week to celebrate the Christmas holiday with their friends and families on Monday.
Speaking with the media Tuesday, even head coach Bill Belichick answered a Christmas related question with a football twist,
Bill Belichick on last-minute Christmas shopping and getting it done: "It was a struggle. 2-minute drill. We were out of timeouts."
