Bill Belichick isn’t known for candid admissions about almost anything, but he offered an interesting one on Tuesday.

The New England Patriots coach admitted the offense was the tilt of the game, citing what he’s seen from Colts quarterback Shaquille Leonard and Jets quarterback CJ Mosley in the past two games.

“We definitely want to prevent that,” Belichick said, via Darren Hartwell of NBC Sports Boston. “I thought there were definitely two or three plays that Leonard really jumped on and basically stopped us on those plays.

“Mosley got a couple of these a few weeks ago in the Jets game — it was almost like he heard the play in the band, he was on it so quickly. Leonard also had such a pair. So whether it was something we gave away or something he expected based on whatever keys he may have picked up, we definitely want to try to prevent that.”

Belichick’s admission may have come in relief after Patriots players were reported to have discussed how Leonard was calling their plays during Sunday’s game. Still, it’s hard to expect Belichick to concede.

The Patriots’ offense has struggled for much of the season, and it’s been bad enough that some fans have even called for a fourth-round rookie to take over at quarterback. Belichick’s admission could certainly shed some light on one of the questions.
