2 of 10

Bill Belichick has a rep for dominating rematches. But all six postseason losses in the Belichick-Brady Era have come in rematch games. The 2005 Patriots lost to the Broncos in the regular season and postseason; the 2006 Patriots lost to the Colts each time; the 2007 Patriots beat the Giants in Week 17 to go 16-0, then lost in the Super Bowl; the 2009 Patriots beat the Ravens in the regular season but lost in the postseason; the 2010 Patriots beat up the Jets 45-3 then lost in the playoffs: and the 2011 Patriots lost twice to the Giants, including in the Super Bowl.
