Nineteen years ago today, the seed was planted for the most daunting dynasty in NFL history when the New England Patriots hired Bill Belichick to be their head coach. This came shortly after Belichick "resigned as HC of the NYJ."

When New England tapped Belichick to be its leader, no one could have foreseen what was about to happen over the next two decades. Belichick had a losing record in Cleveland, but that didn't stop the Pats from hiring him.

In April 2000, a few months after landing Belichick, the Patriots picked some dude named Tom Brady in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. The rest is history.

This stat, courtesy of ESPN's Field Yates, is indicative of just how consistent the Patriots have been the last 19 years.

A combined 184 head coaches have come and gone around the NFL in that time frame, but Belichick remains in his post.

Belichick and Brady are headed to their ninth Super Bowl next weekend. They will be trying to win their sixth world championship.

New England will face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta on Sunday, February 3. The game will be broadcast on CBS.
