A Recent History of Failed Dream Teams

2007 New England Patriots

Record: 16-0
Finish: Lost in Super Bowl to the New York Giants
Standout Players: Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Donte Stallworth, Junior Seau, Tedy Bruschi, Vince Wilfork, Rodney Harrison, Asante Samuel

Batman had Robin, Jordan had Pippen, and in 2007, Tom Brady had Randy Moss. A top flight quarterback with a true No. 1 receiver and boy, did it show. That season, Brady threw a remarkable 50 touchdowns on 4,806 passing yards while Moss had 98 receptions, 1,493 receiving yards and 23 TDs. In the process, the Patriots set a new record for most points in a season with 589. The Pats eventually went 16-0 in the regular season but fell short of perfection in Super Bowl XLII when they lost to the Giants, 17-14.
