After Sunday's win against the Colts, the Patriots are 5-0 to start the season for the third time with Bill Belichick as head coach, with the first two in 2004 and 2007.

When Belichick was asked if he sees any similarities between those teams and this year's, the coach was in no mood to discuss such a comparison.

"I haven't even thought about it," Belichick said, via WEEI 93.7 FM. "I don't care about any of those other teams. I'm just trying to work on this year. I don't care about anything in the past. I don't care about anything in the future. Right now, I'm just worried about the Jets."

In 2004, the Patriots were 14-2 for the regular season and won a Super Bowl. Then in 2007, the team was undefeated before losing to the Giants in that year's Super Bowl.

This season, the Pats have scored 183 points so far, which is the most the franchise has ever scored in its first five games. They are currently on pace to score 586 points for the season, which would be the second-most in Patriots history and the third-most in league history.
