    During a press conference this week, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick spoke out against the Microsoft Surface tablets that he uses on the sideline during NFL games.

    During the Patriots-Bills game earlier this month, Belichick slammed a Microsoft Surface tablet. It's not clear what prompted this, but it was a very rough game overall for the Pats, losing 16-0 in Week 4.
