FOXBORO -- Over the years, the pro teams in Boston have always pulled for one another and it's continuing now with the Red Sox in the ALDS against the Yankees.

After beating the Colts 38-24 Thursday night, before stepping off the podium Bill Belichick made sure to wish the Red Sox well in the upcoming series.

"With that I'd just like to wish the Red Sox well in their playoff series," he said. "We're pulling for them."

Belichick is close friends with Tony La Russa, the Red Sox' vice president and special assistant to to Dave Dombrowski, and has been to a couple of Red Sox games this season.

Also in the press conference, Belichick had some high praise for Tom Brady who threw his 500th touchdown pass in the game.

"It's tremendous," he said. "That's a lot of touchdown passes to a lot of different guys, too. There's no quarterback I'd rather have than Tom Brady. He does a great job week-in and week-out, year-in and year-out, all of the situations. He does a great job."

The Patriots will now have 10 days off between now and their next game against the Chiefs, so maybe we'll see Belichick at Fenway Park over the weekend.
