Bill Belichick’s pristine record has to come to an end at some point, doesn’t it?

So far, Belichick has made the lives of dual-threat quarterbacks a nightmare once he’s matched up against them in the playoffs. But in our estimation, Josh Allen will be the most difficult puzzle Belichick has ever faced in the playoffs, at least when it comes to both running and passing the ball.

At 6-foot-5 and close to 240 pounds, Allen has the frame needed in order to take a big hit and keep on moving. Belichick has done a modest job so far this season on the Bills QB. Allen has rushed for an average of 51.5 yards in two games against the Patriots to go along with 229.5 passing yards. The latter isn’t incredibly impressive but when you consider that Allen carved up the Patriots during their Week 16 matchup for 314 passing yards, it makes you wonder whether or not Belichick can keep him in check.

Will Allen become the first dual-threat QB to send Belichick home in the postseason? This is Belichick we’re talking about here, so it’s hard to go against him … but then again, these are much different Patriots and Bills teams.
