The Patriots have been dominating the NFL for over a decade. That dominance has been particularly felt by the other members of the NFC East. Since 2000, the Patriots have won the division 16 times. That is insane and just shows how much of a grip the Pats have had on the division with Brady and Belichick.
This year has been a bit of a different story with the Patriots falling 2 games back of the division lead. No big deal right? Well not until you find out that the last time the Patriots were 2 games behind AT ANY POINT in the season was 2000.
Let that sink in for a second, for the past 19 years even when they lost the division, they were never behind by more than 1 game. It looks like Brady is enjoying the breakup much more than Belichick is.
