Patriots Statistically the Team of the 2000′s

Elliot Harrison from NFL.com revisited the argument as to who the team of the 2000′s is after the Pittsburgh Steelers just went to another Super Bowl, albeit in a losing effort. The New England Patriots and the Steelers are considered the top two teams that have a claim to the “Team of the 2000′s” title. Combined, the two teams have been to seven Super Bowls since 2000, winning five of those contests (Patriots 3, Steelers 2). That’s a pretty big chunk of the previous decade. Doing some statistical analysis, factoring in the regular season in addition to the championships, the Pats edge out the Steelers despite not winning a title since 2004.
