Bill Belichick says he ‘never meant any disrespect’

FOXBOROUGH — Patriots coach Bill Belichick gave his side of the story Monday about what happened immediately after Justin Tucker’s field goal was signaled good by game officials Sunday night, giving the Ravens a 31-30 win.

Defensive lineman Vince Wilfork ripped off his helmet after the 27-yard kick went through the uprights as time expired, protesting whether the kick was indeed good, and Belichick ran to line judge Esteban Garza trying to get his attention. He wound up grabbing the official on the arm.
