FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WISH) – Patriots coach Bill Belichick, spoke with the media for the first time during a press conference on Wednesday.

Belichick praised his opponents, especially the receiving group, but wouldn’t budge on the drama surrounding the game.

“I get asked the same questions every week,” said Belichick, when questioned about possibly hearing more from friends and family about this game. “We just need to perform well Sunday night.”

Belichick did chuckle after hearing someone ask if folks approach him at grocery store telling him to “kick their (Colts) butts!”

His answer? “I haven’t been to the grocery store in years.”

The Colts host New England Sunday night.
