The New England Patriots’ history really only began 20 years ago when some guy named Tom Brady put them on the map and they dominated in NFL betting. However, the Patriots have been around since 1959, and some of their best performances in franchise history did come before the Brady era.
So, where do they rank in the team’s highest-scoring games? Let’s find out.
1. New England Patriots 59, Indianapolis Colts 24
Tom Brady and the Patriots would lay the smackdown on Andrew Luck and the Colts. After a tightly contested first half, the Patriots would dominate the third quarter as Brady threw two of his three touchdowns. However, it was the defense that would make the difference, as Aqib Talib and Alfonzo Dennard would intercept Luck and take it to the house. Add in a 68-yard punt return for a touchdown from Julian Edelman, and you have the highest-scoring game in Patriots history.
