Belichick becomes the first coach to accomplish this feat in the Pats’ win over the Chargers, which originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick accomplished a rare feat on Sunday that will be hard enough for any other coach to match.
Belichick’s team beat the Los Angeles Chargers 45-0 in their Week 13 game on Sunday afternoon at SoFi Stadium, giving them a victory in 50 different NFL stadiums.

He is the only coach in league history to have won a regular season or playoff game in so many different venues.
There are only two stadiums in the league where Belichick has yet to win a match.
One is the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, which opened this season when the Raiders completed their move from Oakland to Las Vegas. The Patriots and Raiders played in September at Gillette Stadium, and they aren’t expected to face each other again until 2023.

The other stadium where Belichick did not win is US Bank Stadium in Minnesota. Belichick came close to winning at this stadium in Super Bowl LII, but the Patriots lost 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Patriots are set to face the Minnesota Vikings at US Bank Stadium in 2022.
Belichick has won a game in all NFL markets, in addition to victories in England (Wembley Stadium in London) and Mexico (Estadio Azteca in Mexico City).
The Patriots return to SoFi Stadium on Thursday night when they face the Los Angeles Rams in a crucial clash for both teams.
