Patriots HC Bill Belichick on what makes Tyreek Hill hard to defend
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has established himself as one of the most explosive playmakers in the NFL. It appears his efforts in the 2018 NFL season have not gone unnoticed by New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
It is no secret that the Chiefs boast some serious star power on offense. However, according to Tyler Sullivan of 247 Sports, Belichick acknowledged that he will be keeping a close eye on where Hill is at all times:
“Yeah, Andy’s a great coach. He does a great job in game planning,” Bill Belichick said on Wednesday when asked about how he uses Hill. “You never know where he’s going to be. Where he is for you and where he is for somebody else depends on how you play and how they want to attack you, so you’ve got to be ready for everything with him. He could be anywhere.”
It is clear that Bill Belichick is concerned with the kind of impact Hill can have on a game. As a result, it appears their game plan will revolve around containing the speedster. Fortunately, teams have done a solid job of limiting his opportunities as of late.
Tyreek Hill kicked off the 2018 campaign in spectacular fashion with a three-touchdown effort versus the Los Angeles Chargers. However, he has cooled off considerably after failing to top 100 yards receiving in the four games since. His depleted production could be indicative of how high-powered this offense really is. The Chiefs have more than enough weapons outside of Hill to still put points on the board. The Patriots will certainly have its work cut out when they host Kansas City on Sunday night.
