Despite all that success against the legendary coach, Tagovailoa went out of his way to avoid hogging the spotlight after improving to 5–0 against New England. Indeed, he credited the entire Dolphins organization after the AFC East victory.
“I think our team is 5 and 0 against Bill Belichick,” Tagovailoa said, via Boston.com. “It’s never a me thing. It’s never a me thing. And I don’t think we ever look at it as, ‘Oh, we beat them once, we beat them twice, we beat them five times in a row.’ Every time we face Coach Belichick’s team, it’s always a challenge. And we know we’re going to get their best.”
