Patriots Team History

The New England Patriots were originally called the Boston Patriots. Most noteworthy, they were one of the founding members of the American Football League (AFL).

The AFL merged with the National Football League in 1970. Following that, the football team moved from Boston to Foxborough in 1971. As a  result, the team’s name was changed from the Boston Patriots to the New England Patriots.

The New England Patriots are one of the most successful football teams in NFL history. In fact, the football team has made nine appearances in the Super Bowl. Above all, it has made more appearances in the Super Bowl than any other football team.

The New England Patriots, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Dallas Cowboys have all won the Super Bowl five times.

However, the Pittsburgh Steelers, have won the Super Bowl even more times than either team. In contrast to their five championship seasons, the Steelers have won six NFL championships.

The Patriots’ key rivals are the New York Jets. Probably, it is one of the bitterest rivalries in the NFL.

  1. The last time I was in Sonny McLean’s I was so disappointed. The owners sold to an Aussie who loves Boston – but I just don’t think “gets it.” The menu was totally changed, the server thought haddock was a beer, and whole belly Ipswich clams aren’t even on the menu as an entrée any more (you can ask).
    ALL the memorabilia was gone – even the podium where the World Series trophy once sat, that I use to touch like an altar when I would come in.
    I’ve never been back. Sonny McLean’s once upon a time was probably the best all things Boston sports bar outside of eastern Mass – now it’s a sham.

  2. You’ve left out a bar in Seattle that is packed with Patriots fans (50 to 100) for every game. It’s called Spitfire (2219 4th Ave., Seattle, WA 98121.
