WATCH: Belichick gives out two game balls after Patriots beat Panthers

Patriots

Thanksgiving is coming up, so it wasn't too surprising that Bill Belichick was in a giving mood on Sunday.

The New England Patriots head coach gave out not one, but two game balls to defensive players in the locker room following his team's 24-6 win over the Carolina Panthers on the road.

The first game ball went to linebacker Jamie Collins, who made an incredible catch on a third-quarter interception of Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold. Belichick even showed off his arm by tossing the ball across the locker room to Collins.
