Bill Belichick triumphs in game 325 of his career


Bill Belichick is No. 2 all-time with six Super Bowl championships, 25 further postseason wins, and a 294th regular-season win. By virtue of the New England Patriots’ 22-17 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday, Belichick won his 325th career game (including playoffs) as a head coach, breaking George Halas’ record for most victories by a Bears coach and moving into sole control of second place all-time. In terms of victories overall, Belichick, 70, is currently only behind Don Shula (including postseason). Shula recorded 347 victories throughout the course of his Hall of Fame career. When questioned about the achievement following the game, Belichick postponed commenting on its significance until the conclusion of his career. On Sunday, Belichick passed Shula for the second-most regular-season victories by a head coach with one franchise, tying him with Halas (324 triumphs). With the Patriots, Belichick has 258 regular-season victories, one more than Shula had with the Miami Dolphins. With 318, Halas holds the record.
