Bill Belichick glad to have hard-working Brissett

Following the shutout win against Houston, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick heaped praise on 3rd string QB Jacoby Brissett, who started his first NFL game like he was there before.

“He handled himself great last week, this week, all week every day,” Belichick said , per PFT.

“He’s done nothing but come in here and work has hard as he possibly can. When we had three quarterbacks to take his opportunities and learn from the other guys, when it was him and Jimmy he learned from Jimmy, and this week it was pretty much all him. He’s a hard-working kid. . . . He just wants to do what the coach wants to do. I’m glad to have him.”
