The Patriots dynasty set yet another NFL record on Sunday. The team curbstomped the Miami Dolphins for their ninth win of the year, ensuring yet another season above .500 in Foxborough.
It's been 17 years since New England finished at 8-8 or worse. That run of dominance has produced five Super Bowl titles in seven appearances, 11 AFC Championship Game appearances, and 14 division titles. Now, it's an NFL record for most consecutive seasons over .500, and the streak shows no signs of ending anytime soon.
