By Sam DeCoste / September 21, 2019
The 2019 New England Patriots look primed to make another run at a perfect season. It all starts with the only offensive player remaining from the 2007 roster, quarterback Tom Brady.

They ended up losing to the New York Giants—missing their opportunity at the NFL’s first 19-0 campaign.
