12:13 PM ET 10.09 | Bill Belichick has often looked to college football for innovation and inspiration, counting Urban Meyer among his friends and sharing ideas with Nick Saban. This year, it's Chip Kelly that's helped shape the Patriots attack:

That???s why when Kelly walked into Gillette Stadium two years ago ??? and he???s been there three times total ??? ears perked up among the Patriots??? coaches, including Belichick. Kelly had become friendly with former Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O???Brien while both were rising in the college ranks. The UNH coaching staff would visit Brown, where O???Brien was coaching, for pickup basketball games and to talk X???s and O???s. Kelly told the Patriots he was moving to a no-huddle that only used one word to signify everything involved in a play.
