With their victory over the Falcons today, the Patriots have not lost back-to-back regular- season games since December of 2002. The streak of 37 consecutive weeks without back-to-back losses is the longest current streak in the NFL and the longest mark in franchise history.
The post-merger NFL record for consecutive weeks without two straight losses is 60, set by the San Francisco 49ers from 1995-99. The last time the Patriots had a losing streak was when they dropped a game at Tennessee (24-7, Dec. 16, 2002) and followed that with a home loss to the N.Y. Jets (30-14, Dec. 22, 2002).
More to come.
