It is not often New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick gets NFL fans rolling with laughter, but he achieved that on Sunday night in the third quarter against the Miami Dolphins.

The officials on the field ruled that he was short. Belichick waited for a second, but then he got the challenge flag out of his sock.
