During the season, the Patriots went 1— They changed ownership three times in the ensuing 14 years, being purchased from the Sullivan family first by Victor Kiam in , who sold the team to James Orthwein in Orthwein intended to move the team to his native St.
Louis, Missouri where it would have been renamed as the St. Louis Stallions , but instead sold the team in to its current owner Robert Kraft.
Though Orthwein's period as owner was short and controversial, he did oversee major changes to the team, first with the hiring of former New York Giants coach Bill Parcells in Orthwein and his marketing team also commissioned the NFL to develop a new visual identity and logo, and changed their primary colors from the traditional red, white and blue to blue and silver for the team uniforms.
The Patriots' current coach, Bill Belichick , was hired in , and a new home field, Gillette Stadium , was opened in Under Belichick, the team won three Super Bowls in four years , , and The Patriots finished the regular season with a perfect 16—0 record, becoming only the fourth team in league history to go undefeated in the regular season, and the only one since the league expanded its regular season schedule to 16 games.
With the loss, the Patriots ended the year at 18—1, becoming only one of three teams to go 18—1 along with the San Francisco 49ers and the Chicago Bears.
The Patriots' returned to the Super Bowl in but lost again to the Giants , 21— Bank Stadium in Minneapolis , Minnesota. The Patriots original helmet logo was a simple tricorne hat, used only for the season.
From to , the Patriots used a logo of a Revolutionary War minuteman hiking a football. The Patriots script logo during this time consisted of a western-style font.
The minuteman logo became known as the " Pat Patriot " logo, which later became the name of the team's mascot.
The new logo featured the blue and white profile of a minuteman in a tricorne hat set against a flag showing three red stripes separated by two white stripes.
Team owner Billy Sullivan decided to put the new logo up to a vote against Pat Patriot with the fans at the September 23rd home game against the San Diego Chargers , using a sound level meter to judge the crowd's reaction.
The new logo was decidedly rejected by the crowd in favor of Pat, and the concept was shelved. In , a new logo was unveiled involving the gray face of a minuteman wearing a red, white and blue hat that begins as a tricorne and transitions into a flowing banner-like design.
The logo bears some superficial resemblance to the aborted logo. It became popularly known as the "Flying Elvis" due to many observing its resemblance to the profile of a young Elvis Presley.
On July 3, , the Patriots unveiled a new wordmark logo. The Patriots originally wore red jerseys with white block numbering at home, and white jerseys with red block numbering on the road.
Both uniforms used white pants and white helmets, first with the hat logo over the player's number, then with the "Pat Patriot" logo starting in After being dropped again in , they were used again from to The Patriots underwent a complete identity overhaul before the season, starting with the introduction of the aforementioned "Flying Elvis" logo.
The new uniforms consisted of a royal blue home jersey and a white away jersey. When they debuted, both the home and away jerseys used red block numbers with a blue and white outline, but after one season the home uniforms switched to the now-familiar white with a red outline.
In , the Patriots switched the block numbers to a more modern rounded number font with a dropshadow. However, in , the Patriots also became one of the only teams to drop the rounded numbers and switched back to block numbers.
To better match the blue pants, the number on the white jersey was switched from red to blue. In , the Patriots wore the "Pat Patriot" helmets and plain white striped pants from two seasons prior as alternates as part of the NFL's 75th anniversary celebration.
In , NFL teams were allowed to add a permanent third jersey to be worn in a maximum of two games. The Patriots reintroduced a red jersey as their alternate, complimented with the old-style "Pat Patriot" helmet.
For this uniform, the "Flying Elvis" helmet was used. These uniforms were dropped after No alternate uniform was used in In , the red alternate was reintroduced, again accompanied by the "Pat Patriot" helmet.
An alternate white road jersey was also worn with the older helmet for one game, using red numbers, in tribute to the 50th anniversary of the AFL.
The red alternate gained a blue outline around the numbers in and this was worn through The Patriots retired their alternate red uniforms in , thanks to a new NFL rule outlawing throwback alternate helmets.
In terms of number of games played, the Patriots have competed most against teams either currently or formerly from the AFC East division.
Among those, however, a few run deeper than others. The closest geographically has been the rivalry with the New York Jets. Bill Belichick achieved his th career head coaching win regular season and playoffs on November 22, , defeating the Jets 49—19; it was his rd such win as Patriots coach.

Even though the two clubs were placed in separate divisions in the NFL's divisional realignment, their rivalry did not diminish.
At that time, both teams were among the best in the AFC, and both were led by likely Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Peyton Manning for the Colts and Tom Brady for the Patriots The teams met three times in four years , , in the playoffs, with the winner going on to win that season's Super Bowl each time.
The Manning portion of the rivalry began in Manning's rookie season, ; in Manning suffered a bitter 31—28 loss in September as the Patriots behind Drew Bledsoe erased a 28—7 Colts lead, then defeated the Patriots 20—15 in Indianapolis on December After the Colts left the AFC East in , they first met on November 30, , in a 38—34 Patriots win decided on a last-second goal line stand by the Patriots.
The November 4, , meeting involved both teams being unbeaten to that point; the 8—0 Patriots and the 7—0 Colts. The Patriots rallied to win 24— Manning's final meeting with the Patriots as a Colt came in November ; a late interception sealed a 31—28 Patriots win.
Prior to the rise of Tom Brady, the two teams shared a mellow, yet occasionally competitive rivalry, featuring highlights from players such as O.
However, Brady has dominated the Bills ever since taking over as the Patriots' franchise quarterback, holding a regular season record over them.
The Patriots first played the Miami Dolphins in in the AFL, when Miami was one of two expansion teams to debut that year in that league.
The Dolphins dominated the Patriots in the s and s, but the two teams remained competitive with each other for years before the rise of Tom Brady.

The Ravens played the Patriots for the third consecutive season in the AFC championship game, which the Ravens lost 23— The Ravens clawed to a 20—16 lead in the fourth quarter, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady dove into the end zone to make the score 23—20 with around 11 minutes remaining; this proved to be the winning touchdown.
The Ravens' first regular-season win over the Patriots came on September 23, The game was emotional as receiver Torrey Smith was competing following the death of his brother in a motorcycle accident just the night before.
The lead changed twice in the third quarter and the Patriots led 30—21 in the fourth, but the Ravens scored on Smith's second touchdown catch. The two teams met once again at Gillette Stadium in the playoffs on January 10, The Patriots' mascot is Pat Patriot , a revolutionary minuteman wearing a Patriots home jersey.
The Patriots also employ a corps known as the End Zone Militia. During each game, about ten men dressed as minutemen line the back of each end zone.
When the Patriots score a touchdown , field goal , point-after-touchdown or safety , the militia behind the opposite end zone fire a volley of blanks from flintlock muskets.
Under head coach Bill Belichick, the Patriots have employed specific on-field and off-field strategies. On the field, the Patriots have typically used an " Erhardt — Perkins " offense and a " Fairbanks — Bullough " 3—4 defense , referred to commonly as a two-gap 3—4 defensive system.

During the season , the New England Patriots were disciplined by the league for videotaping New York Jets ' defensive coaches' signals from an unauthorized location during a September 9, game.
It was even suggested that the Patriots' staff themselves deliberately deflated the footballs to give their team an unfair advantage during the playoffs.
Also notable was the findings of some suggestions of communication between Tom Brady and two Patriots locker room attendants, indicating Brady was likely "generally aware" of the situation and that the Patriots staff intentionally deflated the footballs.
