New England Patriots currently "lead" the NFL in this sad statistic

It's bad.

At this point, we're adding insult to injury when it comes to the failure of the New England Patriots in 2023. Well, they are currently leading the NFL in this very sad statistic. You can surely find tons of motivational quotes about needing to enure bad times before the good times come. Well, if you believe in that quote, then the Patriots will surely enjoy some good times in the future.

But right now, though, they are in a world of suck. Nothing is working for this team, and it's not getting better this season. However, next year could bring a ton of promise for a team that needs a massive infusion of talent. There's also likely to be major chances in the front office and perhaps even the coaching staff.

I don't think it's likely that Bill Belichick returns to the Patriots in 2023 in his current roles. Whether that means not returning entirely or only holding one role remains to be seen, but it's pretty clear that something needs to change. Currently, the New England Patriots, once of beacon of success in the NFL, have the longest losing streak in the entire NFL. They're actually tied with the New York Giants, Los Angeles Rams, at Atlanta Falcons, having all lost three games in a row.

It's been a very rough season for the Patriots, and I'd argue that the Patriots are one of the few teams in the NFL that don't really have much of anything going for them. They don't have a ton to look forward to in the future without major changes. The team is on their bye week this week, which is needed.

After the bye week, the Patriots will play the New York Giants at home, so if you're still hoping for a few wins, the tilt versus the Giants next weekend would be a good opportunity for that. Either way, it's abundantly clear that the New England Patriots are in a pretty awful spot. But remember, things have to be bad like this before they get better.
