The Atlanta Falcons-Green Bay Packers NFC Championship game was over by the time the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers faced off in the AFC Championship tilt. And, really, it was over by the half, when the Falcons flew out to a 24-0 lead on their way to thrashing the Packers 44-21.
Bill Belichick doesn’t care though.
He was so focused on his own team, he had no idea who won the NFC Championship game.
“No, I mean I didn’t even know they won,” he told reporters. He also said: “Yeah, we were focused on this game. I mean that game, if we didn’t win this game then that game didn’t make any difference.”
Yep. Dude is ultra focused and he’s going to need to be since the Patriots have opened up as only a slight favorite (-3) over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI, Feb. 5 in Houston.
