Their home field is Gillette Stadium, which is about a 45-minute drive from the center of Boston.
When it was founded in 1960, the team was called the Boston Patriots. It kept the Boston label through its first decade of play. The American Football League merged with the National Football League in 1970, and the franchise changed its name to the New England Patriots a year later to position itself as the representative of an entire region.
And the Patriots do have fans from all over. You’ve probably got Patriots fan friends who aren’t from the city of Boston, right?
The first northern Super Bowl was played inside the Detroit area’s monument to concrete and AstroTurf, the Silverdome.

The Chiefs were about to have less than $13,000 in salary cap space (per OverTheCap.com). When Smith and Peters are officially traded, the team will clear close to $19 million.
Looking back, the Chiefs getting up-and-coming corner Kendall Fuller back from the Redskins for Smith makes even more sense. Fuller emerged as an elite slot cover man for Washington between Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland. Now Fuller will graduate to be No. 1 outside, with former Redskin and Raider David Amerson, signed earlier in the week, providing much-needed depth.
Fuller, only 23, is 5-11, 198 pounds and coming off a four-interception season. Peters has similar size (6-0, 197 pounds) and recent production (5 INTs in 2017), suggesting to the Chiefs they have a more than adequate, younger replacement.
