What about a fake punt?

It seems that if Belichick was intent on going for it, he should have done a fake punt.
Indy knew with 2 minutes remianing that they needed a good return and couldn't risk a jailbreak blocked punt attempt.
if you can't do a fake punt in that situation when would you ever do it, or is belichick the evil genius just setting up some team to get a punt in this situation in the playoffs and never see the ball again. I'd love to see that, especially in Indy next time: "Looks like Bill learned his lesson" and BAM 1st down for Brady and Co to take 3 knees!!

I was thinking that in the rematch, the Pats should simply never punt.
