NFL Power Rankings: It's official, Bill Belichick is a wizard (Shutdown Corner)

Bill Belichick has won 247 games, including playoffs. The New England Patriots were without quarterback Tom Brady, running back Dion Lewis, tight end Rob Gronkowski, guard Jonathan Cooper, tackles Nate Solder and Sebastian Vollmer and defensive end Rob Ninkovich. The point spread swelled, and the Cardinals were favored by as many as 9.5 points at some sports books.
