The New England Patriots are taking the "if we don't know it by now, one more day won't help" approach.

According to Jarrett Bell's pool report for the Pro Football Writers of America on Friday, coach Bill Belichick determined he would cancel Saturday's walkthrough.

"We're just going to meet, take a team picture," Belichick said.

The Pats went through a light, soggy practice on Friday, including a 28-minute "halftime" to simulate Sunday's protracted mid-game show.

"This is it," Belichick added. "Practice-wise, we're done. We're as ready as we're going to be."

Belichick seemed happy with where his team was at with the hours ticking down before Super Bowl XLIX.

"These guys have worked hard," he said. "I think they're ready to go. We're playing a good team, so we're going to have to play well."
