The Patriots were founded in 1959 as the Boston Patriots, a charter member of the American Football League (AFL). They played their home games at various stadiums in Boston until 1971, when they moved to Foxborough and changed their name to the New England Patriots.
The Patriots joined the NFL in 1970 as part of the AFL-NFL merger. They made their first Super Bowl appearance in 1985, but lost to the Chicago Bears. They also lost Super Bowls in 1996 and 2007.
The Patriots became a dynasty in the 2000s under the leadership of head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. They won their first Super Bowl in 2002, defeating the St. Louis Rams. They repeated as champions in 2004 and 2005, beating the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles respectively.
The Patriots continued to be a dominant force in the NFL in the 2010s, winning three more Super Bowls in 2015, 2017, and 2019. They defeated the Seattle Seahawks, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Los Angeles Rams respectively. They also set several records, such as the most wins in a season (16), the largest comeback in Super Bowl history (25 points), and the most Super Bowl appearances (11).
The Patriots are currently coached by Matt LaFleur, who replaced Belichick after he retired in 2022. The team is led by quarterback Mac Jones, who was drafted in 2021 as Brady's successor. The team finished with a 9-8 record in 2022 and made the playoffs as a wild card team.
