According to Chris Wesseling from Around the NFL, the New England Patriots heeded Bill Belichick’s pre-game directive to the tee. Belichick told his team, “It’s a 60 minute football game, and whatever issues we have, let’s make sure we correct them, coach them, and fix them.

Now, news has surfaced that the NFL had possession of this video from the beginning, begging the question why Roger Goodell and the NFL did not publicly announce the evidence as well as issue a harsher punishment to Ray Rice. Only when TMZ released the video did the NFL temporary suspend Ray Rice from any football activities.
