Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots join the Las Vegas Raiders for a joint practice session on Tuesday.
The training camp exercise took place at the Raiders' state-of-the-art practice facilities in Henderson, Nevada
During a press conference after today's practice, Belichick shared his admiration for the "Taj Mahal" of football facilities.
"The facilities here are incredible," he said.
"This is the Taj Mahal of football facilities.
It is a good atmosphere and we are looking forward to being in the stadium.
It certainly looks like they are ready for football."
The recently constructed Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center in Henderson cost the franchise more than $75 million.
The 336,227-square-foot facility occupies 33 of 55 acres owned by the Raiders.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the climate-controlled indoor field house covers 130,440 square feet and has 1.5 football fields.
The facility also includes three outdoor areas, a cafeteria, a gym, and a production studio for the team's media group.
