Well, we closed out this one with a tough loss, but I'm proud of how we fought back and took the lead late yesterday. We opened up this decade on January 3rd, 2010 with another depressing loss at Houston where Wes Welker went down for the playoffs.

In between, I'd have to rank Malcolm Butler's pick the biggest highlight for us. With lots and lots of other beautiful memories, just like the prior decade.


We finished off the 2000's with a big win over the Jags at Gillette, 35-7. Wes Welker got to 122 receptions on the season, surpassing his previous career-high of 112 set in 2007. Randy Moss had 3 TD's.

We opened up Y2K on January 2, 2000 with a 20-3 home win over the Ravens. It capped off a season with impressive wins and disappointing close losses to finish 8-8. Credit Bob Kraft for not being satisfied and letting Pete Carroll go; the Ravens likewise finished 8-8, including some impressive play under first year coach Brian Billick, who replaced Ted Marchibroda - the guy who gave Bill Belichick his first job in the NFL. Little did anyone know these two teams would comprise the next two seasons' world champions.

Arguably, this is the most critical year in Pats' history. Kraft got Bill Belichick - and several vital assistants - away from the Jets, and soon thereafter Tom Brady was drafted.

The 90's were capped off with a December 26 loss at home to the Bills, 13-10. In May, Kraft had pulled out of the Hartford deal, starting plans for our new stadium in Foxborough.

That decade began with Doug Flutie being released. Kiam was an idiot.

We can revisit the 60's, 70's and 80's later.

We're on to Tennessee. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
 
2020 is in same decade as 2019.
new decade begins in 2021. how come? because there was no year 0.
Thus first decade is from 1-10. Thus... current one is from 2011-2020.

That's stupid that's like saying it's still the 80s in 1990, 1990 was the start of the 90s.

It's simpler, easier and makes more sense when evaluating the "90's", "00's", "10's" etc.
