The New England Patriots on Sunday night against the New York Jets will try to prevent something that hasn’t happened to them since 2002… losing three consecutive games in a season.

The last time New England lost three straight games in a season was 2002 when they lost consecutive games to San Diego, Miami, Green Bay and Denver. They then defeated Buffalo on November 3 to end the streak. Since then, they have lost two straight on four occasions, but have not lost a third straight since October 2002.

Fourteen NFL teams have already lost three consecutive games this season with Cleveland and Tampa Bay going into play this Sunday with two-game losing streaks and a chance to lose three straight in 2011.
