Patriots Reign

By: Michael Holley

The Beginning of Something Great

In 2002 the Patriots won their first super after defeating the St. Louis Rams 20-17. The next year in 2003 the team failed to even make the playoffs. Then after rallying together as a team the Patriots were able to defeat the Carolina Panthers 32-29 in Super Bowl XXXVIII. The Patriots then went on to win two more super bowls in 2004 and 2014.

Who is the best?

The St. Louis rams had a record of 7-9-0 in 2002 while the Patriots had a record of 9-7-0. Even though the Patriots had a better record, the Rams were the favorite to win. Most people thought that even though the Patriots had the better record they had not won by enough points in each game to be able to beat the Rams, who won by many points each time they won.

The Patriots At Work

While the Patriots are in practice, there is absolutely no joking around. When Belichick is your coach you know better then to give less then 100%. Belichick will not hesitate to fine you if you have infractions such, as being late for practice. This team got to the point that they are at by hard work.
