The New England Patriots just won their sixth Super Bowl to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most in NFL history, and head coach Bill Belichick isn't yet satisfied.
Belichick wants the record, and he made that clear to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman after they beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday.

This is one reason why Belichick is in a class by himself. He's already thinking about the next challenge just minutes after winning a historic Super Bowl title. It's similar to when Belichick reminded the media after winning Super Bowl LI that his team was weeks behind the rest of the NFL in preparing for the 2017 campaign.
The Patriots used the mantra "we're still here" to motivate them throughout the playoffs and into Super Bowl LIII. After proving the doubters wrong, perhaps next season's title defense will use the phrase "we'll be back."
