Nine Super Bowl berths in the last 18 years, and six Super Bowl rings is a feat that may not be witnessed again in the next 100 years in the NFL.

But this may not be the end of TB12 and Bill Belichick's epic careers.

In the upcoming NFL Draft in April, the Pats have 12 picks and, sorry Hatriot Nation, six of the picks are in the top three rounds. The losses of Nate Solder and Danny Amendola were measurable, but the compensatory draft choices for those players will be felt in this year's draft.

As good as the 2018 World Champion Patriots team was, they ought to be in a position to contend again for the Lombardi trophy and will enjoy young depth in doing so.

2019 Away Games: Miami, Buffalo, New York Jets, Houston, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Washington.

Home Games: Miami, Buffalo, New York Jets, Cleveland, New York Giants, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Kansas City.
