Patriots not quite back yet after another early playoff exit

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Talk of a resurgence by the New England Patriots this season appears to have been a bit premature.

A 10-win season following a 7-9 finish in 2020 would be a sign of progress for almost any other NFL team. Yet, for a franchise that has grown accustomed to making deep postseason runs, the quick exit from the playoffs is a signal there's still much work to do.

The Patriots started 2-4 before winning seven straight games and climbing to the No. 1 seed in the AFC in early December. It had echoes of what they routinely did on their way to six Super Bowl championships and nine conference titles during Tom Brady's 20-year tenure.
