Bill Belichick vs. rookie NFL quarterbacks: A one-sided affair originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Life as a rookie quarterback in the NFL isn't easy. But it's even harder when you're going up against the GOAT.
How tough? Bill Belichick's Patriots teams are an astonishing 21-5 against rookie QBs since he took over the reins in New England in the 2000 season -- and no first-year signal-caller has beaten the Patriots since 2013.
And if the game is in Foxboro, fuggedaboutit. The Patriots are a perfect 13-0 against rookie quarterbacks at home under Belichick.
For the Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa, the Hoodie's home/road splits can provide a glimmer of hope as he tries to join an exclusive club of rookies to get the better of a Belichick defense.
