Rough Injustice: The 1976 New England Patriots

WBZ-FM Radio archives a two-hour 40th anniversary retrospective on the 1976 New England Patriots

Despite not winning the Super Bowl, the 1976 team is still considered one of the best Patriots teams of all time.

The 1976 Patriots set the NFL afire, erupting from a 3-11 season in 1975 and an aggregate record of 37-88-1 since 1966 to storm to 11-3, the club's winningest record to that point. Ben Dreith's roughing the passer call on Ray Hamilton, a penalty in sober fact unjustified, derailed a surefire playoff win at Oakland.
