New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are one of the most successful professional sports franchises in recent history, dating back to the team’s purchase by Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft in 1994. Since then, the Patriots have won more games (197), including more playoff games (17), more conference championships (6) and more Super Bowls (3) than any other team in the NFL. The Patriots also own two records for the longest consecutive win streaks in NFL history with 21 straight victories (including playoff games) and 10 straight in the playoffs. In the 2000s, the Patriots won more games (121) than any team during any 10-year period in NFL history.
The Patriots began play as the Boston Patriots of the American Football League in 1960, playing home games at Boston University Field, Harvard Stadium, Boston College’s Alumni Stadium and Fenway Park. In 1971, the team found a permanent home in Foxborough, Mass. and became the New England Patriots.
