The Patriots moved to Foxboro Ma after the 1970 season. Before the move they were known as the Boston Patriots.
After moving out of Boston proper to the suburbs the owners of the Patriots decided to change the name to the New England Patriots in order to try to grow their fan base in the New England Region instead of just concentrating on the fan base in Boston.
The Boston Patriots became known as the New England Patriots because the city of Boston couldn't support them with their request of a new field. They were forced to settle in Fox-borough and decided to drop "Boston" from their name. They tried Bay State Patriots but the name was rejected by the NFL and on March 22, 1971 they became the New England Patriots.
From the guys who fought in the American Revolution on the side of America.
