Synopsis by Scott Albright
NFL Films presents the New England Patriots' outstanding 1997 season, which included winning their second consecutive AFC East division title. Coming off a Super Bowl appearance the year before, the Patriots won their first four games and four of their last five to chart an 11-5 regular season record. The team's impressive 7-1 division record included sweeps of Buffalo and Miami. New England beat Miami a third time with a 17-3 win in the first round of the playoffs and then lost the divisional playoff to Pittsburgh, 7-6. This video retrospective chronicles the Patriots' season, following top performers like quarterback Drew Bledsoe and running back Curtis Martin.
