NFL Network began airing an eight-game package in 2006, which increased to 13 in 2012. The league could sell some of those games to an outside network, starting as soon as next season.

So the Jets’ robotic nemesis has feelings, after all. “You’ve never seen him… like this,” boasts the trailer for “A Football Life: Bill Belichick.” You mean reminiscing over an old teddy bear? Or holding back tears in the hallways of old Giants Stadium? Well then, that’s pretty accurate.
