Bill Belichick was very proud of his team Sunday.

The Patriots dismantled the Chargers, 41-28, in the AFC divisional round. They jumped out to a 35-7 halftime lead and never looked back. 

Courtesy of Patriots.com, the Patriots coach had a ton of praise for his team in the locker room immediately following the win.

“Congratulations, men," he said. "That is a good week of preparation. Played a lot of good football. Just keep doing what we’re doing. Keep getting better each week and expect the competition to get better this week. That is the way it is this time of year. Great job today, men. Give them credit, that is a good football team you beat. They battled us all the way, that is a good football team, but you were the better ones today and you deserved it. That is why we’re moving on. Congratulations, men.”

The Patriots will move on to play the Chiefs in the AFC championship next Sunday in Kansas City.
