History of the Patriots in AFC Championship games

Posted Jan 17, 2014

As New England prepares for their 10th appearance in the AFC Conference Championship take a look back at Patriots history in those games.

Check out an infographic highlighting the history of the Patriots in the AFC Conference Championship game. You can get a copy of the same poster with your admission to The Hall at Patriot Place this weekend (January 18-19. While supplies last).

The New England Patriots advanced to their 10th AFC Championship Game, and third straight AFC title game. The team has compiled a 7-2 record in those Games.

MOST APPEARANCES IN CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
Pittsburgh 15
San Francisco 15
Dallas 14
Oakland 11
New England 10
Denver 9
St. Louis Rams 9

PATRIOTS ADVANCE TO THIRD STRAIGHT CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
The Patriots join the San Francisco 49ers to become the first teams since Philadelphia (2001-04) to go to at least three straight Conference Championships.

KRAFT’S SIX CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIPS ARE THE MOST OF ANY NFL OWNER IN SUPER BOWL ERA
The 2011 AFC Championship was the sixth conference championship for Robert Kraft as Patriots owner. Kraft is the first NFL owner to bring his team to six Super Bowls and his six conference championships are the most of any NFL owner in the Super Bowl Era (since 1966). Seven NFL owners brought their teams to five Super Bowls, but Kraft is the first NFL owner to lead his team to six Super Bowl appearances.

BELICHICK’S FIVE CONFERENCE TITLES TIED FOR SECOND MOST OF ANY HEAD COACH IN SUPER BOWL ERA
The 2011 AFC Championship was Bill Belichick’s fifth conference championship as a head coach. Belichick’s five conference titles are tied with Tom Landry’s total for the second most in NFL history during the Super Bowl Era (since 1966). The only head coach to bring his team to the Super Bowl more times than Belichick is Don Shula (6).

BRADY’S FIVE CONFERENCE TITLES TIED FOR MOST OF ANY STARTING QUARTERBACK IN SUPER BOWL ERA
The 2011 AFC Championship was Tom Brady’s fifth conference title as a starting quarterback, tying John Elway for the most conference titles in NFL history during the Super Bowl Era (since 1966).
