NFL teams aren’t supposed to be ranked by actual rankings, but that hasn’t stopped the Patriots from being the worst team in the league for the past several seasons.
Last season the Patriots finished 5-7, finishing last in the AFC East and not even making the playoffs.
That’s an extremely poor record for a team that was supposed to make the playoffs and should be competing for the title of best team in football.
But instead, the Patriots are the worst overall team in NFL history.
The team finished last in total points, total touchdowns, passing yards, total points scored and total touchdowns allowed.
All of those numbers have dropped off significantly since the Pats’ 2011 playoff appearance.
For instance, the Pats finished last for passing yards and touchdowns allowed in 2014.
Those two numbers have been much better this season, but the Patriots have finished in the bottom half of the league in all three categories.
The NFL’s worst team isn’t even in the top 25.
And they’re even worse than they were when the team last won the Super Bowl in 2008.
The 2013 Patriots finished 8-8 in their final season, missing the playoffs for the first time in 13 years.
The Patriots won the NFL’s fourth title in five seasons, but they finished 7-9.
The last time the Patriots won five straight Super Bowls in 2008 and 2009, the team was in the playoff mix for the final two years.
In both cases, the final season of the Super 16-team championship season was very much the Super16-team’s best year.
That title season in 2008 was the team’s first Super Bowl appearance since 2003.
That season also saw a record-setting season for quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady set NFL records for touchdowns, completions and passer rating for the team.
The Super Bowl victory in 2008 propelled the Patriots to their first playoff berth since 2002.
The 2009 Super Bowl was the first Super 16 title for the Patriots since 2001.
The two Super 16 titles in 2007 and 2008 both came against teams from the NFC West.
The 2010 Super Bowl marked the first championship game played at Gillette Stadium since 2004.
The only other Super 16 victory came in 2012 when the Patriots beat the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 35-14.
That was the only time in Patriots history they won a Super Bowl after losing their first two games of the season.
Brady was the MVP of the 2010 season, and the Patriots didn’t even finish second to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL in passing yards.
Since Brady retired, the only other quarterback to ever have a career season with at least 10,000 yards passing and at least three rushing touchdowns was Brett Favre, who did it in 2009 with the Green Bay Packers.
This season, Brady is the only player in the Super 12 (the AFC East) to throw for more than 3,000 passing yards (4,086) and at most 10,500 yards rushing (4.8 yards per carry).
The Patriots have been ranked as the worst quarterback in NFL football for the third straight year.
If the Patriots finish in the middle of the pack in the preseason top 25, it’s hard to believe they will be among the top three teams in the final rankings.
The bottom two teams in each of the final six categories are the New York Jets and Washington.
That leaves the New England Patriots in a position where they’ll have to beat the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers to finish with the best record in the NFC.
In a weak NFC, New England will likely be one of three teams that finish in a tie for the second-worst record.
The Jets and Panthers are expected to finish in third place and fifth respectively.
The Saints and Giants are expected at or near the bottom of the standings, as well.
The Panthers and 49ers are expected as a tiebreaker.
The New York Giants were one of the worst teams in NFL History.
Their last playoff appearance came in 1998, and it came with Eli Manning at quarterback.
This year, Manning has thrown two touchdown passes in each game.
That number would be good enough to make Manning the only quarterback in history to throw at least two touchdown pass in each one of his four games this season.
It would also be great enough to give Manning a record that would surpass his career high of 10 touchdowns in the season finale against the Detroit Lions.
That would give Manning 10 touchdown passes this season that would rank fourth all time in NFL playoff history.
New England finished third in the conference last season.
But they’re currently ranked last, with just four games left.
If they finish in last place in the first two weeks of the regular season, they’ll likely be ranked as low as ninth or tenth, respectively.
This isn’t the only year that the Patriots haven’t been the best team this season in the postseason.
Last year, they were one the worst in the playoffs, but were able to win a wild-card spot thanks to a surprising victory over the Denver Broncos.
This time, it looks
