Lost amid all the discussion and concern, for Patriots fans at least, after New England's 17-16 victory over the New York Jets was the fact that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick showed up to their postgame press conferences with identical hairdos.
Brady and Belichick could not be further apart on the fashion spectrum. Brady is a chiseled quarterback who is married to a supermodel and has an endorsement deal with UGG boots. Belichick's biggest contribution to fashion is cutting the sleeves off his hooded sweatshirt.
But due to their shared stylist or (more likely) an amazing coincidence, Brady and Belichick had their hair looking very similar after Sunday's game:

Brady most likely tossed his hair that way on purpose. Belichick, meanwhile, was simply disheveled after a frustratingly close win over a 3-12 team. Regardless, the duo's shared style made for lots of funny tweets:
I think Tom Brady styled Belichick's hair for him

Weird how both Belichick's and Brady's hair were standing straight up in press conferences, yet movitations were probably polar opposite

It's hard to tell if this is embarrassing for Brady or impressive by Belichick, but we're leaning towards the latter. After all, Brady is somewhat of a hair icon, so Belichick's ability to predict and match his look is just another brilliant schematic adjustment by the Patriots head coach.
