First and 10: ‘A Football Life,’ Part 2

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been called a genius at game-planning, but just watch him struggle to change the clock on his car’s dashboard. Plus Willie McGinest, Mike Mayock and Michael Lombardi share their favorite memories of Belichick when Part 2 of NFL Films’ highly anticipated documentary, “A Football Life” debuts Thursday night at 10 p.m. ET on NFL Network.

Here’s what else is on tap for Thursday:

  • Tune into NFL Network’s “Total Access” Thursday at 7 p.m. ET to hear from Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew — whose team starts rookie Blaine Gabbert against Cam Newton and the Panthers Sunday — and Washington linebacker London Fletcher, whose Redskins travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys Monday night.
  • Twenty-six years after they stormed through the NFL on their way to 15-1 record, a dominating Super Bowl XX victory and an atrocious music video, the 1985 Chicago Bears have finally been invited to the White House.
  • Police said a package containing 2 1/2 pounds of marijuana was delivered from Eureka, Calif., to the suburban Kentucky home of Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson on Tuesday, where authorities say they found six more pounds of marijuana inside.
  • In this week’s Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em, fantasy editor Michael Fabiano explains why Ahmad Bradshaw should put up big totals against the Eagles — and why fantasy owners should beware of some big stars in Big D Monday night.
