Pro Football arrived in New England on November 16th, 1959, when a group of local businessmen was awarded the eighth and final franchise in the new American Football League. One week later, Northwestern University running back Ron Burton was selected as the franchise's first draft choice and Syracuse running back Gerhardt Schwedes was selected as the team's first territorial choice. Boston Globe artist Phil Bissell drew a cartoon of a Minuteman preparing to snap a football and owner Sullivan liked the drawing so much that he selected 'Pat Patriot' as the team logo. Boston University Field (former home of the Boston Braves) was the first home of the Boston Patriots. The team's regular season home opener came on September 9th when 21,597 fans at Boston University field watched the team lose to the Denver Broncos 13-10. The 1963 season saw the Patriots move to Fenway Park for home games, where they claimed their first division crown with a 7-6-1 record. The team lost the AFL title game, 51-10, to the San Diego Chargers.

The team was renamed the New England Patriots in March 1971 and on August 15th they played their first game at Schaefer Stadium in Foxboro, defeating the New York Giants 20-14 before a crowd of 60,423 in a preseason contest. The first Patriot inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame was John Hannah (July 27th, 1991). On September 7th, 1998, the Patriots became the first professional sports team to produce their own live postgame show to be broadcast live only on the Internet. 'Patriots Live!' debuted following their season-opening Monday Night Football game at Denver.
