New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick will be keeping a close eye on the national championship game featuring Clemson and Alabama on Monday night.
“There will be a lot of good football players out there. I’m sure this is a game, as we did last year, we’ll study very, very closely to watch the talent on both sides of the field compete against each other,” Belichick said during his weekly interview on sports radio WEEI, per Mike Reiss of ESPN. “Two great programs, a tremendous game last year; I’m sure it will be a very competitive night.”
The Patriots have two former Crimson Tide players, including standout Pro Bowl linebacker Dont’a Hightower. New England doesn’t have a player from Clemson on the roster; however, that might change next season.
