New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is getting criticized for his pregame interview on CBS this morning.

CBS reporter Dana Jacobson spoke with Belichick prior to this afternoon's game against the New York Jets. She asked Belichick about the decision to cut wide receiver Antonio Brown.

"We're focused on the Jets today," Belichick said.

"Thank you, coach," Jacobson replied.

It's not surprising that Belichick is refusing to talk about Brown hours before kickoff against the Jets, but at some point, you would hope he addresses it. The Patriots made the decision to bring Brown in, after all, and the wide receiver is facing serious allegations off the field.

New England and New York, meanwhile, are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on CBS.
