For the first time since 2008, the Patriots aren’t going to the NFL playoffs.
Here is Bill Belichick’s reaction to New England not making the postseason.
The Patriots were eliminated from the AFC playoff race on Sunday after a 22-12 loss to the Dolphins. Miami scored three second-half touchdowns in the win.
The loss snapped New England’s postseason appearance streak of 11 seasons, which is an NFL record.
“Disappointed, but we didn’t deserve to win today,” Belichick said in his postgame press conference.
Despite missing the playoffs, the Patriots still have two games left in the regular season.
They will host the Buffalo Bills on “Monday Night Football” in Week 16 before wrapping up the 2020 season with a Week 17 matchup against the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium.
