Catch all the action of New England Patriots football from a Gillette Stadium luxury suite
Love him or hate him, Bill Belichick wins football games. Amassing an incredible resume during his tenure as the head coach in New England, Belichick has been the mastermind behind six Super Bowl appearances and four Super Bowl victories. Perennial AFC East champions, the Patriots also have the luxury of calling one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time their starter; Tom Brady. This duo is closing in on 200 wins together, a player-coach tandem record that leaves everyone else in the dust.
This dynastic football team looks to rebound from an AFC Championship game loss against the eventual Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos with a ring that will give Brady one for each finger on his non-throwing hand, and one more than any other quarterback in NFL history.
Owner Robert Kraft purchased this franchise, of which he has always been a big fan, back in 1994. Prior to Kraft’s ownership, the Patriots made six playoff appearances (including one Super Bowl appearance) in 33 years. However, since Kraft took ownership of the team, the Patriots have made the playoffs 17 of the last 22 seasons (and counting) with six Super Bowl appearances and four Super Bowl victories.
The offense, commanded by Tom Brady, has seen some major changes over the years, with receivers and running backs coming and going. The amazing part is that it seems whatever talent leaves the roster, the Patriots just keep rolling without skipping a beat. The lineup today features talented wide receivers in Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Chris Hogan has also emerged as a threat and the free agency signing of Brandin Cooks makes for a ton of choice for Brady. The tight end position has been very kind to Brady is recent years, featuring one of the league’s most electrifying players in Rob Gronkowski. Large on both talent and personality, the Patriots had to place him on IR last year with a back injury. Stepping up in his place is veteran Martellus Bennett who has thrived in this offensive scheme.

Starting the season with Tom Brady suspended due to the deflate-gate fiasco, New England rallied to a 3-1 record before getting back their starter. This team never looked back as they finished the season 14-2. The first place finish earned them a bye in the playoffs. Convincing wins over the Houston Texans and Pittsburgh Steelers brought this football powerhouse back to the Super Bowl. Their opponent, the Atlanta Falcons jumped out to a big lead over the AFC champs. However, in an unprecedented comeback, Tom Brady led his team back from down 25 points to win the Super Bowl in overtime! The incredible victory gives Brady five Super Bowl rings, more than any other quarterback in NFL history.
There were a lot of firsts in this all-time great matchup. It was the first Super Bowl game to go to overtime, the first to have a team come back from down 25 (the previous record was 10 points). Tom Brady is the first quarterback to win five Super Bowl. He also set records for most passes, completions, and pass yards in a Super Bowl. James White set the record for most receptions and points scored in a single Super Bowl game at 20. Bill Belichick is the first head coach to win five Super Bowls. The list goes on and on.
Undoubtedly, the Patriots are already hard at work looking to secure back to back Super Bowl wins and adding to their tremendous accomplishments. Among the greatest players in New England Patriots history are Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Ty Law, Tedy Bruschi, Vince Wilfork, John Hannah, and Adam Vinatieri.
