About The New England Patriots
Nicknamed “Pats,” the New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in Foxborough, Massachusetts. At present, they are one of the four members of the Eastern Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). Founded in 1960, the team was originally called the Boston Patriots, but the name was changed after the team shifted to Foxborough in 1971. They wear jerseys of blue, red, silver and white. Boston’s great patriotic role in the famous American Revolution during 1775-1783 inspired the name of the team. The Patriots play their home games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.
The Patriots joined the NFL in the league merger of 1970. They reached the playoffs four times before their first Super Bowl appearance, which they lost in 1986 to Chicago Bears. The team lost the Super Bowl again in 1997. Between 2001 and 2004, they became only the second team after the Dallas Cowboys to win three Super Bowls in four years (Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII, and XXXIX). The Patriots are also the seventh team in NFL history to win two Super Bowls (XXXVIII and XXXIX) in a row in 2003 and 2004. Their first Super Bowl victory came in 2001 when they defeated St. Louis Rams on a last-minute goal.
After a slow start in the NFL, the Patriots came back strongly in 1976, finishing with an 11-3 win-loss record and earning a wildcard berth to the playoffs under head coach Chuck Fairbanks. They were then a strong team with players like quarterback Tony Eason, tight end Russ Francis, future Hall of Fame offensive guard John Hannah, cornerback Mike Haynes, and linebacker Steve Nelson donning the team’s colors. In 1978, they won their first NFL Eastern Division crown. The Patriots, however, suffered a setback in the early 1980s, when they found themselves at the bottom of the division.
In the mid-1990s, they again became a formidable force in the Eastern Division. The Patriots won the 1996 AFC championship and then lost to the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl loss led to the resignation of Coach Bill Parcells, who was replaced by Pete Carroll. Before the 2000 season, Carroll made way for Bill Belichick.
Under Balichick, who had a poor first year, the Patriots went on to win the Super Bowl.
Quarterback Tom Brady was adjudged the game’s most valuable player (MVP). Brady again won the MVP honor with the Patriots’ victory in the 2004 Super Bowl. In 2004 the Patriots broke the all-time winning streak record of 18 wins, following a victory against the Miami Dolphins. Later in the season, they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, which ended their winning run at 21 games.
