NFL Week 12 grades: Patriots get 'D-' for embarrassing loss to Giants, Eagles earn 'A' for wild win over Bills


Welcome to the Week 12 grades!

It took 23 years as Patriots coach, but it appears that Bill Belichick has finally hit rock bottom in the NFL. The “Patriot Way” is now the “Wrong Way.” The Patriots suffered one of the most embarrassing losses of Week 12 in a 10-7 setback to the Giants. 

If you’re wondering how bad things got, here’s a small taste: 

  • They became the first NFL team in 30 years to lose back-to-back games despite surrendering 10 or fewer points in each game. 
  • Belichick has now lost two straight games when his team allowed 10 or fewer points. Before this season, Belichick had only lost two such games in 28 seasons as a head coach. 
  • NFL teams are 49-2 this season when allowing 10 or fewer points, which breaks down like this: The Patriots are 1-2 while the rest of the league is 48-0. 

Like we said, it’s been ugly. 

With that in mind, let’s get to the grades for Week 12, starting with the Patriots’ loss (If you want to see the grades for the Thanksgiving games and Black Friday game, be sure to click here).
