New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has led the franchise to a total of 27 playoff wins and five Super Bowl championships in the 21st century.
Belichick also won a postseason game with the Cleveland Browns in the 1994 season, giving him 28 career playoff victories. If that number isn't enough to impress you, consider that Belichick has more playoff wins than the other seven remaining head coaches in the NFL postseason.

Career playoff wins as HC:— Bryan Frye (@LaverneusDingle) January 9, 2019
Bill Belichick - 28
Every remaining coach in the playoffs, combined - 26
Belichick's 28 playoff wins are the most ever, with Dallas Cowboys legend Tom Landry ranking second all-time with 20. Among the remaining coaches, Andy Reid is second with 11 - not even close to half the total that Belichick has accumulated. He'll have a chance to make it 12 when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Indianapolis Colts in this Saturday's AFC Divisional Round.
Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys has two, after leading his team to a close Wild Card victory against the Seattle Seahawks. Sean McVay of the Los Angeles Rams is looking for his first, as they prepare to host Garrett's Cowboys on Saturday.
Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints sits at seven career postseason wins, and they need to win a pair of home games to reach the Super Bowl. But of course, the Saints must beat the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday - coached by Doug Pederson and his four career postseason wins.
Frank Reich (Indianapolis Colts), and Anthony Lynn (Los Angeles Chargers), picked up their first career postseason victories over the weekend. Now, the two men will try to lead their teams to road upsets.
What This Means
There are many incredible stats that go to show how dominant Belichick and the Patriots have been for the past two decades. It's up to the Chargers to try and put an end to this incredible run when they travel to Foxborough this Sunday.
