New England Patriots. New England has been building a football dynasty (including six Super Bowl wins) over the past two decades, largely thanks to the consistency and hard work of coach Bill Belichick and star quarterback Tom Brady. Now that Brady is playing for a different pro team, the Pats' upcoming season can't be predicted. Exhibition games begin in August at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro about 20 miles from Boston, and the season runs through January. Gillette Stadium, 1 Patriot Pl., Foxborough, Massachusetts, 02035. 508/543–1776; www.patriots.com.
