No matter what happens to the New England Patriots the rest of the year, even if they go down in a screaming ball of fire and don't win another game, they still will be remembered as the best team of the 2000s.
Sports Illustrated has released its choices for the best teams, players, games, moments and everything else of the decade. Patriots are all over the place.
They were named the best organization. Bill Belichick was named best coach. Scott Pioli was named best personnel man. The 2007 team had the best season. Randy Moss from the Oakland Raiders was selected as the best trade and Tom Brady the biggest draft steal.
Of course, the Patriots also were involved in the biggest upset of the decade, losing to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII, and the greatest scandal, Spygate.
There were a couple mentions for the other AFC East teams, too.
Here are the men with AFC East ties who landed on Peter King's all-decade team:

Center: Kevin Mawae (Jets).
Guard: Alan Faneca (Jets).
