The Patriots' 33-0 victory against the Jets on Monday night was the last in a series of blowout victories in which the Patriots dominated like no team for the past 99 seasons.
The 7-0 Patriots outscored their opponents by 175 points this season. This is the highest point difference in seven games since the first NFL season of 1920.
As everyone remembers, the 1920s Buffalo All-Americans outperformed their first seven opponents by 218 points. This dominant performance in the first season of the NFL remains the best seven-point difference of all time in the NFL's 100th season.
The All-Americans began their season with a win against West Buffalo 32-6 and a win over All-Buffalo 51-0, followed by a McKeesport Olympic 28-7 loss. When they defeated the Columbus Panhandles 43-7 to win 7-0 in the season, they had surpassed their opponents by 218 points.
The bad news for the All-Americans is that they lost in their eighth game to Jim Thorpe and the Canton Bulldogs. Next week, Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns are trying to play that role. If they face the Patriots on Sunday, they will face a team that has dominated the NFL's first 100 seasons as just another side.
