Among the plethora of news and rumors floating around about the Patriots this week, here are three of the more intriguing stories that most fans will want to read about.

Apple TV releases first teaser for new series entitled "The Dynasty" on the New England Patriots

In case you needed some good, old-fashioned reminiscing about the best years of the New England Patriots, Apple TV just dropped a trailer for a docuseries following the team beginning after their win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

Initial details about the 10-part documentary were published in a press release back in February 2022, revealing it will be based on the book The Dynasty by New York Times bestselling book by author Jeff Benedict. The article also went over what exactly was documented for the series and all those involved with the production.

"With unprecedented access to the New England Patriots, Benedict spent two years inside the organization, and chronicled the rise and historic 20-year run of the Patriots during the Brady-Belichick-Kraft era. The documentary series, directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Matthew Hamachek (“Tiger"), will go deeper, drawing on thousands of hours of never-before-seen video footage and audio files from the Patriots organization’s archive. The filmmakers have also been given access to the organization during the 2021 season and are conducting hundreds of interviews with past and present Patriots players, coaches, and executives, along with league officials and the arch-rivals of the most dominant sports dynasty of the 21st century."

The trailer begins right as the team wins their sixth Lombardi trophy, then pans to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, who appear to be on set to discuss their thoughts on their dynastic run over the span of two decades. But the more telling part of the teaser was what Robert Kraft was saying as images of the coach and quarterback duo during their time together were shown on the screen.

"We were coming near the end, and I was trying to hold it together the best I could."

It's a significant statement to hear, as there has been plenty of speculation surrounding how Tom Brady's exit from New England truly unfolded. It seems Kraft reveals he knew it was bound to happen and confirms his attempts to avoid it altogether.

There will likely be more teasers between now and when the docuseries premieres on February 16, 2024. So be sure to look out for more sneak peeks.
