The Story of New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft
The New England Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl. Again. This will be the Patriots’ 10th Super Bowl appearance since 1996. The 2018 season was the 18th consecutive year in which the Patriots have finished above .500. The Patriots have gone to the playoffs all but five times in the past 24 years. That is 80% of the time. No other American football team has ever accomplished this feat. Edward DeBartolo Jr.’s (1980s-1990s) San Francisco 49ers are a distant second. The 49ers went to the playoffs 15 times in DeBartolo’s 23-year tenure. That was 65% of the time.
