The New England Patriots are heading back to another Super Bowl after they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship Game, but you wouldn’t know it looking at Bill Belichick after the game.
The Patriots were being presented with the AFC Championship Game trophy after the game, and the trophy was given to Belichick. It almost looks like the Patriots lost and someone handed Belichick a participation trophy.
His reaction is absolutely hilarious. This will be the eighth Super Bowl appearance for Belichick and Tom Brady, so they’re used to winning AFC titles. The Patriots have played in seven straight conference championship games, and they’ve won four of those.
If the Pats win another Super Bowl in two weeks, Belichick will probably be much more excited. But for now, it’s simply “on to the Super Bowl” for Belichick.
