Bill Belichick Passes Tom Landry On NFL’s All-Time Wins List

BOSTON (CBS) — With the Patriots’ win over the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City on Sunday, Bill Belichick now sits alone for the third-most wins in NFL history.

Sunday’s victory was Belichick’s 271st career win as a head coach, passing Tom Landry on the prestigious list.

Echoing what he said last week after tying Landry with a win over the Broncos in Denver, Belichick gave his players all the praise.

“Really, that’s a credit to our players. Players win games,” he said. “They’re the ones who go out there and make the blocks, the tackles, the runs, the throws, the kicks. I think what is means is, No. 1, I’ve been doing this for a long time, and No. 2, I’ve coached a lot of great players. I’ve been very fortunate to have a great coaching staff, great assistant coaches and great players. I’ve had a great opportunity to direct those people and, really, the credit goes to the players.

“They won the game tonight and they deserved to win because they played better,” he said of Sunday’s victory. “That’s the way it’s been on those 270 games or whatever it is. I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of great players.”

With Sunday’s win, only two men are ahead of Belichick on the NFL’s All-Time wins list: George Halas (324) and Don Shula (347).

Carlos Arredondo Helps Military Families Out This Thanksgiving

NORWOOD (CBS) — Volunteers for the Arredondo Foundation were busy stuffing bags with Thanksgiving Day fixings Sunday.

Boston Marathon bombing hero Carlos Arredondo took part in his third annual turkey giveaway to provide full meals to military families across the state.

Arredondo says he enjoys serving these families.

“When you provide a small token for this military families they are very happy to receive it,” Arredondo said.

Dayanara Bacerra lost her husband Jose to suicide in 2014 having just joined the military.

“It’s important because it’s a time where the girls are looking forward to being with family and missing their father,” Bacerra said.

On Sunday, Arredondo teamed up with Ernie Boch Jr. at Subaru of New England in Norwood to help families like 18-year-old Alexander Zayas. His father died 11 years ago.

Zayas was there to both pick up a turkey and to volunteer at the event.

“To see all the people come in to collect their turkeys it also fills me up with joy,” Zayas said.

“I’ve met some gold star families and blue star family members and it just so heart-wrenching and it’s difficult. So this is cool event, turkeys on the tables and can’t beat it,” Ernie Boch Jr. said.

At the Reggie Lewis Center, you can clearly see the need is great.

The Tito Jackson Turkey Giveaway there distributed 2,0500 turkeys to families.

“We start at 12 [p.m] and people got here at 7:30 [a.m.] and it was raining and it was cold and so it speaks to the need that is there,” Jackson said.

Jamila King is very thankful for her bird.

“Him doing is a life savior.  To a lot of people it may not mean much but to my family, it means everything,” King said.

Rob Gronkowski On Patriots’ Trip To Mexico City: ‘A Fiesta All Over The Field’

BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots are ready to come home, but they certainly enjoyed their business trip to Mexico City.

The Pats will fly back to New England a happy bunch, now 8-2 on the season and winners of six straight following their 33-8 drubbing of the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City. They did just about everything right for the second straight week, and treated international football fans to quite the show on Sunday.

But this road victory was truly unique. Even with the stadium mostly empty as the Patriots and Raiders hit the field for their pregame warmups, the crowd at Estadio Azteca was loud and ready to go. The Raiders may have been the home team for Sunday’s contest, but the crowd remained electric as the Patriots piled up the points on the scoreboard.

“They were on top of their game,” tight end Rob Gronkowski said of the fans. “It was just a fiesta all over the field.”

“This atmosphere was awesome,” safety Devin McCourty said. “The crowd was crazy. We knew when it came game time they’d be into it. They gave it for four quarters. We definitely appreciate the fans coming out today.”

“It was definitely a great experience,” said running back Dion Lewis, who got the fans going with a 15-yard touchdown in the first quarter. “The fans were very passionate and it was pretty cool to play in a soccer stadium. It got pretty loud and the fans got into it.”

Tom Brady said he enjoyed his time in Mexico City, including the beautiful view from his hotel room and the experience of playing in such a historic stadium. The in-game experience further added to his newfound love of the city.

“It was a privilege for us to be here and play in front of those fans,” Brady said after torching the Raiders for 339 yards and three touchdowns. “It was a great experience.”

Brady was met with a mix of boos and “Brady!” chants when he first took the field before the game. Those chants shifted more to just his name as the contest continued, surprising the quarterback who often hears lots of dislike from opposing fans. Brady is now 3-0 in New England’s games outside of the United States, adding Sunday’s win to a pair of victories over in London.

“These trips all come down to whether you win or lose,” he said. “You remember when you win. If you lose you want to forget as fast as you can.”

Brady, who had never been to Mexico City before this weekend, said he would definitely be returning in the future.

Many of his teammates feel the same way, but they’ll be happy to be back home after spending over a week on the road. Bill Belichick explained it as a three-leg trip, first starting in Denver for last Sunday’s prime time game, followed by a stay at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs to get used to the high altitude that awaited them in Mexico City.

The Patriots couldn’t be more grateful for the hospitality that awaited them at each stop. Bill Belichick took the podium after Sunday’s win in an Air Force sweatshirt.

“I’ll always be a Navy man, but I want to give a shout out and a big thanks to [Lt.] General [Jay] Silveria and his great staff at the United States Air Force Academy for the hospitality and the week that we had there,” said Belichick, before praising his team for their work over the last week-plus. “We really asked a lot of the players, our organization, and they all delivered. We had a great nine days and we really got better as a football team.”



The Patriots will get to spend Thanksgiving week at home before playing host to the Miami Dolphins next Sunday. But after that one-week return to Gillette Stadium, they’ll hit the road for three more road games in Buffalo, Miami and Pittsburgh.

But if we’ve learned anything from these Patriots, now winners of 12 straight on the road, they can win football games just about anywhere.
