Bill Belichick, who was once at the cutting edge of “aggressive” 4th down calls that are really playing the percentages, may have cost himself a win he desperately wanted with a deeply strange decision that ended the game:

The percentages here aren’t so stark as to make the decision indefensible in the abstract depending on the particular context. But given that 1)it was pouring rain, 2)the kicker is a mediocre 37-year-old journeyman who was injured and 3)even if you make the kick you’re leaving Tom Brady almost a minute needing only a FG for the win…I really don’t get it. Yeah, the Pats QB is a rookie, but he had played well and if you have that little confidence in him you might as well pack it in right now. I don’t get it, and you have to wonder if as he pushes 70 the greatest coach in NFL history is finally losing something on his fastball.
