WATCH: Belichick gives out two game balls after Patriots beat Panthers originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Thanksgiving is coming up, so it wasn’t too surprising that Bill Belichick was in a giving mood on Sunday.
The first game ball went to linebacker Jamie Collins, who made an incredible catch on a third-quarter interception of Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold. Belichick even showed off his arm by tossing the ball across the locker room to Collins.
The second game ball went to cornerback J.C. Jackson, who intercepted two Darnold passes, including a pick-6 in the third quarter.
Check out Belichick’s game ball presentations and more in the locker room celebration video below:
