In November of 1959 Boston businessman Billy Sulivan secured the rights to establish the eighth and final franchise of the American Football League. The following winter, local fans submitted suggestions for the name of the team, the most popular choice and the one that was eventually selected by Sullivan was the Boston Patriots.
Despite having Gino Cappelletti (1964) and Jim Nance (1966) both acquire AFL league MVP’s, the Patriots struggled throughout their time in the AFL, only mustering one playoff appearance from 10 seasons.
Following the NFL merger in 1970 the Patriots moved to a new stadium in Foxborough Massachusetts and officially changed their name to the New England Patriots. After five consecutive losing seasons in the NFL, the Patriots started to find their feet in the late 70’s.
Making their first NFL playoff appearance in 1976, and winning their second division championship in 1978. Losing both postseason campaigns in the first round. In 1985 the Patriots secured their first NFL playoff victory, on their way to taking out their first AFC conference championship, defeating the Miami Dolphins 31-14 and progressing to their maiden Super Bowl appearance.
Following the 46-10 Super Bowl loss to the Denver Broncos, the Patriots collected 11 wins from 16 games the following season and claimed the franchise’s third division championship. New England was one again eliminated in the first week of playoffs.
After a 1-15 season in 1990, the Patriots changed ownership once again, and signed Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells for the 1993 season. Despite owner James Orthwein’s intention of moving the team to St. Louis, Robert Kraft took over ownership in 1994, buying the team for $175 million.
Parcells was named NFL Coach of the Year in 1994, as the Patriots lost the Wildcard playoff Game to the Browns. New England’s next playoff appearance came in 1996, after an 11-5 regular season. The Pats defeated the Steelers and the Jaguars as they progressed to their second Super Bowl appearance, and subsequently claiming their second AFC championship.
The ultimate prize once again eluded them, defeated 35-21 by the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXI. Parcells retired following the Super Bowl defeat, and only three seasons later, his former defensive coordinator Bill Belichick was named the head coach of the Patriots in 2000.
At his first draft as head coach, Belichick selected quarterback Tom Brady with the 199th pick, and a 20 year dynasty was born. The ‘Brady Belichick era’ has been one of the most dominant periods of success in the history of the NFL. From 2000-2019 the Patriots won six Super Bowls, nine AFC championships and 17 divisional titles.
Brady and Belichick were the two constants throughout this era, with Brady winning three league MVPs and four Super Bowl MVPs, while Belichick has been named NFL coach of the year on three occasions. In the 2020 offseason, Tom Brady announced that he would be leaving the Patriots to continue his NFL career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Despite the loss of arguably the greatest player of all time, the Patriots roster is still littered with Super Bowl champions, and still led by arguably the greatest coach in the history of the NFL. The Patriots have since signed 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton to replace Brady at quarterback.
In what was their first season without Tom Brady on their roster since 1999, the Patriots started the season 2–5, their worst record through 7 games since 2000.
The Buffalo Bills Week 14 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers marked the first time since 2008 that the Patriots would not be winning the AFC East division and following their Week 15 loss to the Miami Dolphins, New England were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention for the first time since 2008, bringing an end to their streak of 19 consecutive winning seasons.
While this was all happening, Tom Brady turned the previously 7-9 Tampa Bay Buccaneers into an 11-5 regular season team and led the Bucs to their first Super Bowl victory since 2002. Brady was named the MVP of Super Bowl LV and now has more Super Bowl rings (7) than any NFL franchise (New England – 6, Pittsburgh – 6).
Bill found the next leader of the evil empire in 2021 when Mac Jones emerged as one of the best young quarterbacks in the National Football League. Jones led the Patriots to the playoffs in his rookie season, where they lost in the Wild Card round.
If you are a fan of the New England Patriots, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the New England Patriots have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?
Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the New England Patriots:
Bill Belichick returns as the head coach of the New England Patriots and despite a rough couple of seasons over the last few years, he is still the greatest active coach in the National Football League. This will be his 28th season overall and 23rd as the head coach of the New England Patriots.
He is the most decorated coach in history as he has won six Super Bowls and made nine Super Bowl appearances as well. He has a career overall record of 321-156 and a career winning percentage of 67%. He also holds the record for most playoff wins in National Football League history with 31.
The New England Patriots offense will be led by second year quarterback Mac Jones. He actually had a pretty solid rookie season after the Patriots brought in a lot of weapons for him over the off-season like Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. Jakobi Myers also emerged as a nice pass catching target at the wide receiver position.
Damien Harris will likely take the snaps as the starting running back this year as their mostly average offense from last season will look to take the next step heading into 2022–23. Their offensive line was pretty solid last year and they will be hoping for that type of production again this season as well.
The New England Patriots defense should be one of their strong suits again this season but they will have to avoid getting drubbed like they did in the playoffs last year when the Buffalo Bills hung 47 points on them. Their one weakness on this side of the football is that they don’t really have a game changer at any level and it could come back to bite them against the elite skill position guys.
Mack Wilson is likely to step in at the middle linebacker spot after his less than stellar tenure in Cleveland so it will be interesting to see how he performs in his new surroundings as one of the top players on this defense.
Last season the New England Patriots finished with a record of 10-7 and they are expected to be about the same as they were during the 2021-22 season but pick up a couple less wins this season. Oddsmakers expect the New England Patriots to win around eight to nine of their seventeen games during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
The odds for betting the over on the win line are currently (-115), while the odds for the betting the under on the win line are currently (-105) heading into the 2022-23 season. Their odds to win their division are currently (+500), while their odds to bring home a Conference Championship are (+2500) at the moment.
Their current odds to win the Super Bowl and bring home the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season are listed at (+5000) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season. This puts them as one of the teams in the middle of the pack in terms of odds to bring home the title this season.
They are currently the favorites in six of their seventeen games this season. As usual they are expected to win more games on their home field instead of having more wins on the road. They come into the 2022-23 National Football League season expected to be two possession favorites in zero of their seventeen games and two possession underdogs in zero of their seventeen games this season, as they expected to be a competitive and balanced football team.
It’ll be interesting to see how this team performs after all the changes during the offseason and while playing in such a stacked conference like the AFC. Due to the massive amount of parity in the National Football League, you never truly know what is going to happen from season to season. But all signs point towards the New England Patriots being on the more successful end of the spectrum during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
