Belichick can take his place next to George Halas and Curly Lambeau, the only other coaches with six NFL championships.
Vince Lombardi was a five-time winner of NFL championships.
Halas won his six NFL championships in four decades. He won titles with the Chicago Staleys/Bears in 1921, 1933, 1940, 1941, 1946 and 1963. Lambeau won NFL championships in 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939 and 1944, all with the Packers.
Paul Brown of the Cleveland Browns won seven titles, but four were in the All-American Football Conference.
“The thing that I just told our team, or told the defense at least, is that he can beat you so many different ways. I mean, he can run the ball and he can throw the ball and win a game,” Pees said. “I’ve seen firsthand where we went and they went into games and went empty the whole first quarter and went no huddle.”
With a young quarterback in rookie Mac Jones, Belichick is running the ball this season.
“They have two-back formations that we haven’t seen,” Pees said. “But don’t be surprised because he can come out and throw the ball for the first 10 downs. I’m just telling you, they can change overnight. It’s just been so much continuity there with him, (offensive coordinator) Josh (McDaniels) and (running backs coach) Ivan Fears. They just kind of regroup.”
