Few things in sports create more intense discussion than debates involving the New England Patriots, and picking the franchise's best players of the decade is no exception.
The 2010s have been very good for the Patriots and their fans.
The Patriots have played in five Super Bowls and won three of them over the last 10 years. They also won the AFC East division title in every season of the decade, in addition to reaching the AFC Championship Game in at least eight of the 10 seasons this decade.
Picking the Patriots' all-decade team is no easy task. We know quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski will make the list, but choosing between the many deserving candidates at the other positions, especially on defense, is quite difficult.
NBC Sports Boston's Patriots insiders Tom E. Curran and Phil Perry break down their picks for New England's all-decade team on the latest episode of "The Patriots Talk Podcast," which drops every Tuesday and Thursday as a part of the NBC Sports Boston podcast network.
