Which Patriots team is your all-time favorite?
Tom Brady was stellar, with 36 touchdown passes and only 4 interceptions in an MVP season. Things started with a convincing win over the Bengals, but concern cropped up in Week 2 with a loss to the Jets. The Patriots responded with five straight wins, including ones over the Ravens, Chargers, and Vikings. A hiccup in Cleveland had many thinking it was the start of a losing streak, but instead the Patriots dominated, beating five playoff teams -- Steelers, Colts, Jets, Bears, and Packers -- during an eight-game win streak to complete the season at 14-2. But the momentum was stopped dead in the postseason when the Patriots went down to a 28-21 defeat against the Jets at Gillette Stadium in the divisional round.
