The Patriots were one of the original members of the American Football League, which played its first season in 1960. They were originally called the Boston Patriots until they moved to Foxborough, MA in 1971 -- one year after the AFL merged with the NFL to form the league that exists today -- and changed their name to the New England Patriots.

I assume by Patriots you mean the New England Patriots of the National Football league. In 1959, the team was introduced as the Boston Patriots but in 1971 the team was relocated to Foxborough, Massachusetts where they were renamed as the New England Patriots. This is the same name that the team uses today.

What were the first Football teams?

Sheffield in England are the first ever football team. I don't know the very oldest football team but the oldest professional club still in existence is Notts County, who play at the Meadow Lane stadium in Nottingham, England. They currently play League Two, the fourth tier of English football, they are somewhat overshadowed in Nottingham by Nottingham Forest which is a much more famous team, winning back to back European Cups in 1979 and 1980. The two clubs are located just across the River Trent from each other, although the Forest ground is actually located outside the city boundary. Ironically for the oldest professional club in the world they have never one the top flight of English football and have only ever had moderate success. The first recorded Football game took place in the year 217 in Derby, England, just a short distance away from Nottingham on Shroove Tuesday.
