You hear the name Belichick, you think football. But the truth is that lacrosse is just as big in the household of New England Patriots coach and Annapolis High grad Bill Belichick . On Thursday came the news that Bill's daughter Amanda Belichick has been appointed interim head coach at Wesleyan, her alma mater, for the 2014 season. Following in her father's footsteps, Belichick has coached since her four-year lacrosse career at the Middletown, Conn., school ended in 2007.

Sunday Patriots at Broncos 49ers at Seahawks Monique Jones Last week: 2-2 Overall: 164-99-1 Broncos 34, Patriots 31 The Patriots have relied on their running game in recent weeks and it has been enough to get to this point. The difference for the Patriots this week might be in the Broncos' run defense, which could lead to a passing-frenzy that will give the Broncos a slight edge. Seahawks 30, 49ers 27 The Seahawks may have the biggest advantage in the NFL when it comes to playing at home, but this season they also have benefitted from a suffocating defense.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has never hid his respect for the Ravens and some of the organization's top decision markers. So, it was hardly surprising that in his final news conference before Sunday's game, he spent a good part of it showering the Ravens with praise. He saved some of his kindest words for Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome . The two worked together in Cleveland and have maintained a friendship. Belichick called him a “pretty special person, special football person, too. “He's been very complimentary about his comments of what he learned from me, but I think I probably learned more from him than he learned from me,” Belichick said.

The story has been told many times over the past three decades, as Bill Belichick went from being an up-and-coming defensive coordinator in the NFL to an unsuccessful first-time head coach with the Cleveland Browns to eventually becoming one of the most accomplished coaches in league history. No matter where and how Belichick's story unfolds, it always begins in Annapolis. It also begins with his father, Steve, a college football coach who moved the family there from North Carolina to work at the Naval Academy in 1956.

PHOENIX -- The New England Patriots' no-nonsense coach had his sights set on perfection long before his players did.

Johns Hopkins coach Dave Pietramala has often been a guest of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, attending games while standing on the sideline at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. With the Patriots slated to meet the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis on Sunday, Pietramala has a ticket to the contest -- but will not attend. “I have a ticket, I have a hotel room with the Pats and I'm not going,” Pietramala said Friday morning. “I can't. Just too much here.

A classic confrontation will unfold in today's AFC championship game in Foxboro, Mass., where the NFL's most unstoppable offense will clash with the most immovable defense. On a chilly day at Gillette Stadium, the precision passing of Peyton Manning will collide with the sharp defensive mind of Bill Belichick, headlining the battle between the third-seeded Indianapolis Colts (14-4) and the top-seeded New England Patriots (15-2). It's the NFL's co-Most Valuable Player vs. the league's Coach of the Year.

Genius? That's for scientists and surgeons, artists and entrepreneurs - not paranoid football coaches whose long-term vision is staring at game tape from a distance of five feet. So if Bill Belichick is not a genius, he must be a conundrum, or at least a mystery. The coach of the New England Patriots has set himself apart by winning two Super Bowls in three years at a time when dynasties are supposed to be passe. He accomplished this after he forged a reputation as the best defensive coordinator in the NFL, helping Bill Parcells win a pair of Super Bowls with the New York Giants.

Believe in them or not, the New England Patriots have forced their way into the NFL's grand finale. Next stop: New Orleans. Next miracle target: the so-called Greatest Show on Earth. The Patriots made the Pittsburgh Steelers disappear yesterday with a glut of special teams plays, a rhythm-breaking blitz on defense and just a pinch of offense. When Super Bowl XXXVI unfolds Sunday at the Superdome, it will be the AFC's unlikeliest playoff team against the NFC team everyone expected to be there -- the St. Louis Rams.

One of the main talking points after Sunday night's showdown between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots, along with Tom Brady erasing a 24-point deficit and Peyton Manning looking uncomfortable in the cold, was Bill Belichick's decision to kick the ball away at the start of overtime. The Patriots won the coin toss at the start of overtime. But instead of taking the ball at the start of overtime, Belichick chose to have the wind at his back. It was the first time a coach chose not to receive the ball at the start of overtime since the league switched to its new overtime format two years ago. With the 20-mph winds limiting Manning's ability to throw downfield, the Patriots eventually won late in overtime after a muffed punt gave the Patriots the ball inside the red zone.

CBS Sports will cover the Super Bowl with 62 cameras, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said in a teleconference Thursday promoting the Feb. 3 game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. "That includes all of the unmanned cameras," he said. "It includes any aerial cameras we might have. But listen, there are a lot of cameras ... " By comparison, the norm for Baltimore Ravens games, which were usually covered by second- or third-string CBS crews this year, has been 9 to 12 cameras.

They wanted the New England Patriots, told the world that they would beat them and then went into their stadium and dominated the second half as no visiting team had ever done. It didn't seem possible when they limped into the postseason losers of four of five, or when they trailed the Denver Broncos last week by a touchdown with under a minute to go, or during Sunday night's first half, when they were having trouble getting quarterback Tom Brady off the field. But it's reality now: The Ravens are going to the Super Bowl.

It almost seems wrong to complain about the telecast of a game that ended as happily as Sunday's AFC championship victory by the Baltimore Ravens 28-13 over the New England Patriots. Almost. But CBS Sports once again failed to deliver the goods on a Ravens game. And just because I'm euphoric over the Ravens' victory doesn't mean I should soft pedal how much I hated the telecast. Last week, CBS Sports brass boasted about the Super-Bowl cameras and technology they were going to have on hand for the game.

In the postgame interview room adjacent to his team's locker room, Bill Belichick wore a pained expression and was barely audible after the New England Patriots' last-second 31-30 loss to the Ravens on Sunday night. You could say he spoke in a monotone. Except a monotone sounds like the roar of Niagara Falls compared to how softly the Patriots' coach mumbled. “Good football game, tough loss, both teams competed hard,” Belichick said in his opening remarks. “In the end, we came up a little bit short.
