Bill Belichick isn't wasting time dwelling on the disputed call that ended the Patriots' loss to the Carolina Panthers.

New England's coach is too busy preparing for the Denver Broncos on Sunday night.

Belichick said Tuesday he had no further comment about the officiating in Monday night's 24-20 defeat at Carolina. On the final play, officials waved off a penalty that was called when Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly wrapped up tight end Rob Gronkowski in the end zone.

Belichick said after the game he received no explanation for the decision. Referee Clete Blakeman told pool reporters that officials conferred and decided Tom Brady's pass was underthrown and wasn't catchable.
