19. 2016 Patriots (won Super Bowl LI)
Get used to it, they’re going to be on here often as we go through the list. Just a reminder, this team played without Tom Brady for the first four games of the season, lost super weapon Rob Gronkowski to a season ending injury, and were down 28-3 to the Falcons in the third quarter of the Super Bowl AND CAME BACK TO WIN.
This team makes our Top 25 because despite all the adversity they still managed a 14-2 regular season record, set team and NFL records for offensive production, and sent guys you’ve never heard of to the Pro Bowl. What an effort in 2016 by the Patriots.
