SPREE SUCCESS STORY
The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston area. The Patriots compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference (AFC) East division. The team plays its home games at Gillette Stadium in the town of Foxborough, Massachusetts, which is located 28 miles (45 km) southwest of Boston.
Founded in 1959 as the Boston Patriots, they have become one of the most successful teams in NFL history, claiming 16 AFC East titles as part of 18 consecutive winning seasons since 2001. The franchise has since set numerous notable records, including most wins in a ten-year period (126, in 2003–2012), an undefeated 16-game regular season in 2007, the longest winning streak consisting of regular season and playoff games in NFL history (a 21-game streak from October 2003 to October 2004), and the most consecutive division titles won by a team in NFL history (ten straight division titles from 2009 to 2018). The Patriots own the record for most Super Bowl appearances overall (eleven) and they are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins (six).
The team’s history is displayed in The Patriots Hall of Fame, a museum that includes historical wins and losses, the uniforms of famous players such as John Hannah, Mike Haynes, and Ben Coates, as well as Super Bowl trophies.
