After earning their sixth Super Bowl win last year, what record will the New England Patriots finish with during the upcoming 2019 season?
During the 21st century, no NFL team has experienced more success than the New England Patriots. Ever since a young Tom Brady was given the chance to be the Patriots’ starting quarterback in 2001, the franchise has evolved into one of the greatest in the history of all sports.
During the last five seasons, New England’s dominance has seemed to progress even further. Since 2014, the Patriots have played in four Super Bowls and they have come out on top in three of them.
New England is now tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl victories in NFL history with six. With what the Patriots have been able to do over the last few years, it wouldn’t be a shock to anyone if they were able to win their seventh Super Bowl this season.
Getting it done in 2019 may be a little more difficult for New England than it has in the past though. For starters, the Patriots will no longer have the services of Rob Gronkowski after the All-Pro tight end decided to retire from the league this year.
New England also will also have to make up for the departure of a number of other players this season including Trent Brown, Trey Flowers, and Chris Hogan. The Patriots will be looking to the younger guys on their roster and some new additions like Demaryius Thomas, Benjamin Watson, and Jared Veldheer to make up for the production they lost during the offseason.
Despite some of their roster changes, New England still has Brady and Bill Belichick leading the way. The combination of these two has proven to be elite in the past, so why shouldn’t this continue in 2019?
So how will the Patriots’ upcoming season turn out? Will they be able to win their division and set themselves up for another run at the Super Bowl?
