Because the Patriots will be defending AFC East Champions in 2020 (for an NFL record 11th straight season), they will face the 2019 winners of the AFC North and South, the aforementioned Ravens and Texans, respectively.
The Patriots were eliminated from the AFC playoff race on Sunday after a 22-12 loss to the Dolphins. The loss snapped New England’s postseason appearance streak of 11 seasons, which is an NFL record. “Disappointed, but we didn’t deserve to win today,” Belichick said in his postgame press conference.

The main reason Brady left the Patriots is because the two sides couldn’t agree on a multi-year contract that would allow Brady to retire with the organization. The Patriots were able to build a dynasty in large part because Brady was consistently giving the team a bargain on his contracts.
