The New England Patriots play in the American Football Conference as a charter member of the NFL.  The franchise was founded by Boston business man Billy Sullivan in 1959 as the eighth member of the brand new American Football League. The team’s name was chosen through a fan contest as “Patriots” was a commonly suggested name.

The club began play in 1960 under the name Boston Patriots. For the first few seasons, the Patriots did not have an official home field and played at various stadiums in the Boston area, including Fenway Park and Harvard Stadium. Following an appearance in the 1963 AFL Championship game which the Patriots lost to the Chargers, the team moved into a new stadium located in Foxborough, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, and the team name was then changed to the New England Patriots. The club would struggle on the field and not appear in a playoff game in either the AFL or the NFL for thirteen more seasons.

The Patriots became a charter member of the NFL in 1970, once the AFL and NFL had merged to form one league.  The team would have trouble finding consistency throughout much of its history. In 1985, they made it to the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history but lost to the mighty Chicago Bears.  

In 1996, they would return to the Super Bowl as they were led by head coach Bill Parcells and star quarterback Drew Bledsoe. Once again they came up short, losing the contest to the Green Bay Packers.  In 1993, the same year that Parcells was hired, the team changed their traditional team colors from white and red to silver and blue while also adopting a new logo.

In 2000, the Patriots hired Bill Belichick, who quickly had success with the club. The Patriots won three Super Bowls in four seasons beginning in 2001 under Belichick’s leadership. They also became the first team to go undefeated in a sixteen game regular season with a perfect 16 to 0 record in 2007. However, they were upset in the Super Bowl by the New York Giants. The Patriots also moved into a new home early in Belichick’s tenure; Gillette Stadium became the Patriots new home in 2002.

Since the 2001 campaign, quarterback Tom Brady has emerged as one of the top QB’s of all time. He took over for an injured Drew Bledsoe during the 2001 season and led the club to their first championship.
