What Two NFL Teams Play Today?

The answer may surprise you! According to our experts, the two NFL teams that are most likely to play today are the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots.

New England Patriots

The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region. The Patriots compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference (AFC) East division. The team plays its home games at Gillette Stadium in the town of Foxborough, Massachusetts, which is located 28 miles (45 km) southwest of downtown Boston.

The Patriots are also headquartered at Gillette Stadium. An ownership group led by Robert Kraft has owned the team since 1994. The team began play as an original member of the American Football League (AFL) in 1960 under the name Boston Patriots, changing its name to New England after relocating to Foxborough in 1971. The Pats played in only one AFL championship game prior to the merger with the NFL, losing to the San Diego Chargers in 1963. Following the 1970 merger with the AFL, they advanced to that league’s championship game eight more times, winning three times – starting with a win over Oakland Raiders in 1986, followed by wins over Minnesota Vikings (in 1997 and against Los Angeles Rams (in 2018). They appeared a total of eleven times between 1985 and 2007, winning seven of them; since then they have won six out of seven appearances – all against AFC rivals Indianapolis Colts or Pittsburgh Steelers – including three straight from 2014–16 and four out of five from 2017–19. The team’s fourteen appearances in total between 1985 and 2019 are tied with those of Indianapolis Colts for most by any AFC Eastern Division-based franchise during that time span, while their eleven consecutive appearancesaw them become only second such franchise overall since 1970 merge behind Dallas Cowboys who made thirteen straight post-season outings during 1975–87 stretch; both teams’ current streaks are ongoing since 2017 season.

In 2012, Bill Belichick became the team’s head coach, replacing Hall of Famer Pete Carroll who’d been fired after nine seasons and two Super Bowl championship titles over Drew Bledsoe-led teams earlier that year; Belichick has served as de facto general manager throughout his tenure and has brought about a dynastic run which includes six Super Bowl wins – all achieved during his 18-year spell as of 2019 – matching those total number previously achieved by Green Bay Packers during 1919–67 timeframe and Dallas Cowboys during 1966–85 window respectively for most such championships by any head coach-quarterback tandem(es), while also becoming only third head coach in NFL history to win at least six league titles after joining Pro Football Hall of Famers George Halas and Curly Lambeau; conversely he is one among only four head coaches – along with Weeb Ewbank, Dick Vermeil and Mike Holmgren – to have won multiple Super Bowls while leading two different franchises.

Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team that play in the National Football League (NFL). The Rams franchise was founded in 1936 as the Cleveland Rams in the short-lived second American Football League (AFL). The club was owned by Harold “Red” Grange, George Halas, and Carroll Rosenbloom.

The Rams joined the NFL in 1937 as a result of the AFL–NFL merger. In 1946, the franchise moved to Los Angeles. The Rams franchise remained in the metro area until 1994, when they moved to Anaheim Stadium in Orange County, California. They returned to Los Angeles in 2016, relocating to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

The Rams franchise has won three NFL championships, and is the only one to win championships representing three cities (Cleveland in 1945, Los Angeles in 1951, and St. Louis in 1999). They are also the only NFL team to lose a Super Bowl representing their home city (in 1980).
