Monday night’s nationally televised game brought a record audience to our Patriots messageboard.

A record 3,310 users were online Monday night for the Patriots 38-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints.  That’s the largest audience since the opening game of 2008 where quarterback Tom Brady went down with a season ending knee injury, and prior to that the Super Bowl loss against the New York Giants.

It appears misery loves company – with each record crowd coming on the heels of a negative Patriots experience for fans back here in New England.
