Watch: Patriots Celebrate In Locker Room After AFC East-Clinching Win
December 25, 2018
The New England Patriots managed to turn things upside down and then came back to normal within a week. Well, the Patriots always do that, and they always celebrate in the locker room.
Head coach Bill Belichick is more than proud of his guys, and he talked to the team after the big win. He was even smiling! The locker room was on fire as the teammates celebrated their great success. We really missed those locker room celebration videos.
The Patriots defeated the Bills and clinched their 10th consecutive AFC East championship. We all enjoyed the “Hat and T-shirt” moment inside the team’s locker room after the game.
New England has a lot to celebrate at this point of the regular season. The players should be thankful for everything they have achieved so far. They lost a couple of games, but came back on track.
The team is also thankful for the great performance of Nick Goles. “Shout-out Nick Foles,” Duron Harmon said. “I had the phone going overtime — just refreshing, refreshing, refreshing. It was third-and-10 at one point, and I see Foles throw the 30-yard bomb to Alshon. Literally, I was just refreshing, refreshing like, ‘All right, C’mon, Nick. Give me some of that magic that we saw last year.’”
“Well, always a great feeling to win the division. You have to give our players a lot of credit. It’s been a tough couple of weeks but they responded with a great week of preparation. I thought we played hard today against Buffalo that also played tough like they always do. They’re a well-coached team and they really make you work for everything. In the end, we were able to make enough plays in all three phases of the game. I thought our punt and punt return teams gave us a lot of good field position plays throughout the course of the game. Then we were able to run the ball fairly consistently, play pretty good defense. Those are all good things. It’s good to win, good to know that our season is going to extend a little bit here. It’s a good way to celebrate Christmas and then obviously be ready to go against the Jets,” Belichick said after the game.
