Bill Belichick grabs referee after Patriots lose
Bill Belichick can expect to receive a fine from the NFL.
The Patriots coach grabbed a referee after the Pats lost to the Ravens 31-30 in Baltimore on Sunday night. Belichick was not only upset that his team blew a 30-21 fourth-quarter lead, but he likely was specifically upset about the ruling on the field goal to win it.
Kicker Justin Tucker’s winning field goal crossed the upright above where it extended. Belichick probably wanted to argue about the call or have an explanation about it but didn’t get the opportunity. Despite being accosted, the ref continued to run off the field.
