Until the club moved to Foxborough in 1971, the Patriots played their home games in different stadiums across Boston. The team’s name then became the New England Patriots as part of the deal. Foxboro Stadium was the home of the Patriots from 1971 to 2002, when it was destroyed in conjunction with the building of Gillette Stadium. The club resumed its home games at Gillette Stadium the same season.

The Patriots have the most Super Bowl wins (6, shared with the Pittsburgh Steelers), appearances (11), and defeats (all with the Pittsburgh Steelers) (5, tied with the Denver Broncos). Prior to the twenty-first century, the team had a run of success under head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady from 2001 to 2019.

History of the franchise

On November 16, 1959, Boston businessman Billy Sullivan was given the American Football League’s eighth and final franchise (AFL). Locals were given the opportunity to submit suggestions for the official name of the Boston football team the following winter. The “Boston Patriots” were the most popular pick – and the one chosen by Sullivan. “Patriots” refers to the colonists of the Thirteen Colonies who rebelled against British authority during the American Revolution. And proclaimed the United States of America an independent nation in July 1776. The Boston Globe’s illustrator Phil Bissell created the “Pat Patriot” emblem shortly after.

For the majority of their time in the AFL, the Patriots failed, and they never had a permanent home. During their stint in the American Football League, Nickerson Field, Harvard Stadium, Fenway Park, and Boston College’s Alumni Stadium all stood as home grounds. After the 1963 season, they only appeared in one AFL championship game, losing 51–10 to the San Diego Chargers. For the next 13 years, they did not show up in another AFL or NFL post-season game.

In 2011, the Patriots made it back to the Super Bowl but loses 21–17 by the Giants. The Patriots made it to their record-tying eighth Super Bowl in 2014. Defeating the reigning champion Seattle Seahawks 28–24 to win Super Bowl XLIX and their fourth championship. With under a minute remaining with the ball on the New England 1-yard line, rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler caught a game-winning interception on Seattle’s last offensive play.

In the 2016–17 playoffs, New England became the first club to reach nine Super Bowls. And they met the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. After trailing 28–3 in the third quarter, the Patriots rallied 25 unanswered points in the waning seconds of regulation to tie the game. The Patriots won the coin toss and scored a touchdown in the first overtime in Super Bowl history to win their fifth championship.

Uniforms and logos

The first helmet logo for the Patriots was a basic tricorne hat, which was only worn for the 1960 season. The Patriots used a logo depicting a Revolutionary War minuteman carrying a football from 1961 until 1992. During this time, the Patriots script logo used a western-style typeface. The minuteman emblem became known as the “Pat Patriot” logo, and the team’s mascot comes after it.

The Patriots collaborated with NFL Properties in 1979 to create a new, simpler logo to replace the Pat Patriot logo. A blue and white profile of a minuteman wearing a tricorne hat was put on a flag with three red stripes divided by two white stripes in the new design. At the team’s home game against the San Diego Chargers on September 23, owner Billy Sullivan opted to put the new design. It is up for a vote against Pat Patriot with the fans, utilizing a sound level meter to gauge the crowd’s reaction. The crowd roundly rejects the new emblem in favor of Pat, and the idea was scrapped.

In 1993, a new logo with a gray face of a minuteman wearing a red, white, and blue hat that starts as a tricorne and develops into a flowing banner-like design was introduced. The emblem is almost identical to the ill-fated 1979 version, which was booed out of the home stadium: A silhouetted dull facial picture and hat with a white star, having red stripes to the left, in a right-facing profile. It was dubbed the “Flying Elvis” by many because of its similarity to the profile of a teenage Elvis Presley. The blue color was darkened around the year 2000.

The Patriots revealed a new logo on July 3, 2013, that replaced the old wordmark’s script with block letters and altered the tricorne hat.

Uniforms

1993–present

Before the 1993 season, the Patriots undertook a comprehensive identity revamp. Beginning with the introduction of the aforementioned “Flying Elvis” logo. A royal blue home jersey and a white away jersey was part of the new outfits. The Flying Elvis symbol is emblazoning on the silver helmet, which had no further striping. Both jerseys had silver pants with stripes that seem like they were streaming from the Flying Elvis. But after one season, they were replacing it with basic red and blue stripes. Both the home and away jerseys had red block numbers with a blue and white outline when they first appeared. But after one season, the home jerseys are changing it again with the now-familiar white with a red accent.

The Patriots made several modifications to their uniform starting with the 2020 season. The all-blue “Color Rush” design, complete with modernized block lettering and numbers and blue/red/white socks, became the standard home uniform. A matching white uniform was also shown, which would be worn with blue pants. As a homage to the “Pat Patriot” outfit, both had shortened shoulder stripes.
