The Patriots are once again one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl this season. That's nothing new, though, for this era in New England.
This era, of course, is the Bill Belichick era. Widely regarded as one of the best coaches in football, Belichick has positioned the Pats to be competitive every year through his no-nonsense, always-prepared style of coaching.
The results speak for themselves, too, with three Super Bowls topping the ever-growing list of accomplishments for Belichick.
Of course, having Tom Brady as your quarterback for pretty much that entire time doesn't hurt, either.
