The New England Patriots will not be in the playoffs for the first time in 11 years which was the longest streak in the NFL.
On Sunday, the Patriots lost 22-12 to the Miami Dolphins in a game that saw quarterback Tua Tagovailoa become the first rookie QB to beat the Pats since Geno Smith in 2013.
Bill Belichick officially misses the playoffs for 7 seasons out of 8 as head coach without Tom Brady.

The last time the Patriots didn't have a winning season:
‣ Brian Urlacher won Defensive Rookie of the Year
‣ The NFL still Had an AFC & NFC Central
‣ The Colts played in the AFC East
‣ Tom Brady was a rookie
That was in 2000! pic.twitter.com/wRphNuGrs2

The #Bills will head to Foxboro on Monday Night and the New England Patriots will be ELIMINATED from playoff contention and have NOTHING to play for.
