The Boston Patriots finished the National Football League's 1970 season with a record of two wins and twelve losses, and finished last in the AFC East Division. This was the last season the Patriots would be called the "Boston" Patriots, as next year they would swap their names to the "New England" Patriots. Their final season known as Boston did not go as planned, as the Patriots would struggle all season and would finish 2-12, the worst in the NFL. After winning their first game against the Miami Dolphins, the Patriots would lose 9 in a row before beating the Buffalo Bills on the road. The season concluded with an embarrassing 45-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Cincinnati. Head coach Clive Rush would quit the season at the midpoint because of medical reasons. His replacement, John Mazur, did not do much better of a job. Mazur would end up coaching the team next season. The Patriots would score the fewest points in the league in 1970, scoring only 149 points, while allowing 361. They also missed the playoffs for the 7th straight season.
