Belichick Asked Wayne About Game-Winning Play vs Colts

A rather interesting tidbit from ESPNBoston.com about how Pats coach Bill Belichick used info from Colts WR Reggie Wayne about the game winning play in the teams 31-28 win back on November 21st in New England.

One of the most exciting plays of the Patriots’ 2010 regular season came when safety James Sanders intercepted Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to seal a 31-28 victory on Nov. 21. Sanders was credited by Belichick for making a great play, but there was something else about the play that piqued Belichick’s interest. He wanted to know if Manning’s arm was hit by rookie outside linebacker Jermaine Cunningham.

So Belichick sought out the information … at the Pro Bowl. That was one of my favorite parts of watching “Patriots All-Access”, which featured behind-the-scenes footage of Belichick wearing a microphone at the Pro Bowl. At one point, Belichick stood side-by-side with Colts receiver Reggie Wayne and played the role of reporter in search of information.
