Patriots, Belichick set records with clinching victory over Broncos

DENVER -- This was't a simple hat-and-T-shirt game for the Patriots.

MORE:

Yes, they earned their 'AFC East Champion' hats and shirts by beating the Broncos, 16-3, on Sunday. But they also wrote several pages of history in the process:

-- They set an NFL record for consecutive division championships with eight. They had been tied with the 1973-79 Rams with seven straight division titles.

-- The Patriots are the only team in NFL history to win 13 division titles in 14 years.

-- Bill Belichick set an NFL record for most division championships by a head coach, with 14. He had been tied with Tom Landry and Don Shula at 13.

-- They became the fifth team in NFL history to make the playoffs in at least eight consecutive seasons. They last missed the postseason in 2008.

-- They also clinched their seventh consecutive 12-victory season, which ties them with the 2003-09 Colts for most consecutive 12-win seasons since the 1970 merger.
