With the win on Monday night this will make the 10th straight year that the Patriots have won 10+ games. I tried to google to see if this was some kind of a record since the merger of the NFL/AFL. I hate it when they include the old NFL or AFL records that mean nothing in the modern era of football. To me, being a fan of the Patriots for 40+ years, this is a big deal. I understand that because the streak has lasted so long that many fans consider that to be he normal. I assure it is not. We have been blessed.
