The New England Patriots have seen a ridiculous amount of success in the 2010s. As the decade nears its end, an All-Decade team is in order.
As the New England Patriots attempt to end the 2010s on top, let’s take a look back on what has been a decade of unmatched results.
The team boasts a record of 123-33 in the regular season, has won three Super Bowls in five appearances, and has gone 16-6 in the playoffs overall. Oh, and they still have a chance to add on to that by the way.
Obviously many players have contributed to this run, but not everyone can make the New England Patriots All-Decade team. I will be basing this team off of longevity and playoff impact more so than regular season numbers, with few exceptions.
All-Decade teams typically include a coach, so I’ll save you an entire slide dedicated to that topic. For the Patriots the coach, believe it or not, is Bill Belichick. I know that’ll be a topic of debate for a lot of people.
