Hardly A Stellar Practice
The Patriots finished the preseason 0-4, hardly the preseason New England hoped for as it sets out to defend its AFC crown. Here are a few relevant notes on the heels of New England's winless preseason:
• The last team to lose the Super Bowl and go winless in the following preseason was the 2002 St. Louis Rams.
• The last time New England was winless in the preseason was 1990. The Patriots went 1-15 that season.
• This is the seventh time in Patriots' team history the team has gone winless in the preseason.
