He’s Baaack…In Another Uniform [VIDEO]
So just how long has it been since the New England Patriots have lost three straight games? If you guessed 16 years, you would be correct.
16 years of tough NFL week-to-week play and the Pats have been never dropped three in a row.
For historical buffs, here's how it happened in 2002. In fact, the Pats actually lost four straight that year...
1) The Patriots picked up an early lead against the Chargers on the road, only to watch it crumble away (L, Chargers, 21-14).
2) The Patriots fell behind early to the division rival Dolphins in Miami, but managed to mount a comeback before ultimately falling short (L, Dolphins, 26-13).
3) The Patriots were absolutely smoked at home by Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers (L, Packers, 28-10).
4) The Patriots hosted the Denver Broncos and were unable to comeback from an early deficit (L, Broncos, 24-16).
Today's game at Foxboro marks the return of former Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola. He signed as a free agent with the Dolphins and has caught 11 passes for 100 yards.
