The NFL's one of the most challenging leagues to win continuously in because there aren't that many games in a season and star players get injured now and then. It's easy for a team to lose a game. It's almost impossible to go unbeaten in a single season. In this blog post, we'll talk about the longest NFL winning streak.
The New England Patriots At 21 Games
It is no surprise that the longest winning streak in NFL history was achieved by the greatest dynasty in history. After a week-four loss to Washington Redskins in 2003, New England wouldn't drop a single game until week eight of the following year winning twenty-one games in a row. Tom Brady was his usual best self passing a penultimate touchdown in Denver and orchestrating two game-winning drives in overtime. But it was the brilliance of Bill Belichick and the Patriots' defense that carried the squad to greatness. Aided by the addition of all-pro free agent Rodney Harrison, New England led the league in points allowed and interceptions. The Patriots won the Superbowl thirty-eight against Carolina Panthers making them claim two Superbowl titles in three years (2001 season and 2003 season). New England added Correy Dillion in 2004 and overwhelmed opponents. Their historic streak came to an end against Pittsburgh Steelers.
