Patriots

Even if we were to lop off the entire first half of this Patriots dynasty -- an entire decade -- what the Patriots have done since 2010 would still qualify as one of the greatest runs any franchise has put together in NFL history.

Three Super Bowl titles. Five Super Bowl appearances. Eight AFC Championship Games. Ten AFC East crowns. It's mind-boggling. Narrowing down the list of big wins to 10 is equally disorienting. The ones that resulted in Lombardi Trophies are obvious, but after that . . . it's an eye-of-the-beholder situation. 

Your view of the rankings might differ from mine, but no matter which way you go, the end result is the same: It's been a pretty good time to be a Patriots fan.
