New England Patriots: NFL 2019 - AFC East




The Patriots have started poorly last season, with two defeats in three games, but the team, as they have almost always recovered, won five straight games after a bad start and won their division again. In the playoffs, the team overcame the Chargers and Chiefs, reaching their 3rd consecutive Super Bowl and beating the Rams 13x3 in the decision, with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady's team winning their 6th championship. 

Current champions, the Patriots suffered major losses in the offseason, with the retirement of tigh end Rob Gronkowski, the departure of wide receiver Chris Hogan, right tackle Trenton Brown and defenders Trey Flowers, Malcom Brown and Adrian Clayborn. Defensive team coordinator Brian Flores also left, accepting the position of head coach of rivals Miami Dolphins. Except for veteran defensive end veteran Michael Bennett, the team made no major investments, bringing Mike Pennel of the Jets to try to improve defense against ground play and placing bets on wide receiver and tigh end positions in an attempt to replace Gronkowski and Hogan In the draft, the team selected N'Keal Harry, the wide receiver is a big target and could become Brady's main target in the red zone now that Gronkowski is not on the team.
