Patriots Hope To Regain Dominance On The Road

Patriots look to regain winning edge on the road

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – For almost a decade, the New England

Patriots were a dominant road team. Last season was a different

story, as they lost six of eight.

Now, the Patriots are hoping to regain their road edge when they

visit the the rival New York Jets at the New Meadowlands Stadium on

Sunday.

Since going 11-5 in their breakthrough 2001 season, the Patriots

are 48-24 in the regular season on the road under Belichick,

including 8-0 in 2007 en route to a perfect 16-0 regular season.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick says in most road games, it comes

down to “a couple of plays,” and last year, for the first time in

years, the Patriots weren't making them.
