The New England Patriots were founded as an expansion team in the American Football League back in 1959. Though synonymous with winning today, the Patriots franchise got off to a very slow start. The then-Boston Patriots made the AFL championship game in 1963, but recorded just five winning seasons in its first 16 years. In 1976 the Patriots turned around the franchise's trajectory, making the playoffs for the first time since 1963 by earning a Wild Card spot. New England further improved in 1978, winning its first AFC East division title. After a few more playoff berths, the Patriots won its first AFC title and reached its first Super Bowl in 1985. New England became the consistent threat we know them to be today in the 1990s when Drew Bledsoe took the reins under center, making the playoffs four times in his eight-year tenure. In 2001, the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick era of Patriots football began. The duo has yet to post a losing season in 12 seasons with Brady as a starter and the pair has gone on to win three Super Bowls. New England's Hall of Fame features 18 former players.
