FOXBOROUGH — So there was fairly significant NFL milestone reached on Sunday night with the Patriots' 27-13 victory over the Browns.
BillBelichick became just the third NFL coach, joining DonShula and George "Papa Bear" Halas, to record his 300th regular and postseason victory. Not only that, but Belichick became the fastest ever in 434 games (Shula, 445; Halas 455).
Yup, pretty significant. Let's take a look at where that was noted on the "Game Notes" distributed by the Patriots media relations staff.
(Scans page 1) ... Nope. Page 2 ... Nope. Page 3 ... Nope. Page 4 ... Nope. Page 5 ... Oh, there is is. The fifth note on the page, under the heading Individual Notes.
BELICHICK BECOMES THIRD COACH WITH 300 CAREER WINS; IS THE FASTEST TO 300 WINS
Perfect. Just like so many other things about this night.
