FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Bill Belichick has a black eye, and the Patriots coach isn't saying how he got it.

His players don't know, either. Backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo told reporters they have a better chance of getting an answer than he does.

Belichick showed up at his news conference Tuesday with a bruise above his left eye. Asked about it, he said, ''I think I'll live.''

The Patriots are preparing for their playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
