Combine a Patriots-Jets week with Thanksgiving, and it's like, well, Christmas, for the tabloid boys in New York. The New York Post's cover featured Patriots coach Bill Belichick Photoshopped onto a turkey, and the New York Daily News also made Belichick its back cover with the headline "Brain Freeze."
Both papers were critical of Belichick keeping Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski in for the final extra point of Sunday's blowout win over the Colts. Gronkowski broke his arm on the play and had surgery Monday.
The Patriots play the Jets Thursday night in New Jersey.
