Jerry Thornton & Five Rings:The Super Bowl History of the New England Patriots (So Far)

Five rings to rule them all! A history of the modern Patriots as seen through the lens of their Super Bowl games, by the bestselling author of From Darkness to Dynasty

Since 2001 the Patriots have played in eight Super Bowl championships and won five, a run of excellence unparalleled in all of professional sports. In a league designed to ensure that no one franchise can dominate over time, New England won for over a decade and a half. A dynasty that began with an improbable run to a championship in 2001 has rebuilt, rebooted, and retooled several times over, winning most recently in 2017. But during those years, no other franchise reached the same level of controversy, drama, and turmoil—or even came close.
