Bill Belichick, Eric Decker fail to connect on postgame handshake
Bill Belichick and Eric Decker had a missed connection on their postgame handshake attempt Saturday night.
After the New England Patriots’ 35-14 win over the Tennessee Titans in the AFC divisional playoff game, Belichick and Decker exchanged pats. Belichick then went for the handshake, but Decker had already walked past him. Once Decker realized Belichick wanted to shake his hand, he tried to go back, but the window of opportunity had closed.

It was that sort of night for Belichick, who failed to catch his challenge flag when he tossed it:

At least this missed handshake isn’t as bad as what’s happened to Tom Brady in the past.
