Which Patriots team is your all-time favorite?
Craig James (left) was a force on the ground with 1,227 rushing yards. In the playoffs, the Patriots went on a memorable road run. They beat the Jets and Raiders, then ended a 19-year losing streak at the Orange Bowl in Miami to defeat the Dolphins and win their first AFC Championship and a trip to Super Bowl XX to face the Chicago Bears. In the showdown in New Orleans, the vaunted Bears defense, featuring William "The Refrigerator" Perry, swallowed up the Patriots offense and steamrolled to a 46-10 win. Patriot greats John Hannah and Julius Adams retired after the season.
