The Worst Record In Patriots History?
The 1990 New England Patriots year was their 31st overall and 21st in the NFL. Rod Rust was the head coach for the first and only time. The Patriots concluded the season with their poorest record in franchise history, a 1–15 record.
They finished dead last in the NFL and last in the AFC East Division. The squad still contained a few All-Pros and regular players from their 1980s championship teams, but many of them were past their prime, and the team lacked the new talent to swap them.
The team went on to lose fourteen games in a row after starting 1–1, several of them in humiliating circumstances. A reporter was harassed during a locker room interview, which embarrassed the squad and its management off the field.
