Since Bill Belichick became head coach in 2000, the Patriots have won 10 divisional titles, gone to the playoffs 10 times and advanced to five Super Bowls—winning three within a four-year span. With a 205-109 career record (including the postseason), Belichick ranks first among active coaches and sixth on the all-time list.
As vice president of player personnel and general manager of the Ravens, Ozzie Newsome has presided over drafts that have harvested such stars as offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, linebacker Ray Lewis, cornerbacks Duane Starks and Chris McAlister, running backs Jamal Lewis and Ray Rice, safety Ed Reed, linebacker Terrell Suggs and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. In 2008, Newsome hired John Harbaugh as coach and drafted quarterback Joe Flacco, a 1-2 punch that has helped propel the Ravens on a run of five consecutive playoff appearances that culminated in a Super Bowl championship last season.
