Have any other two AFC teams put together won as many American Conference traveling football championship games as the New England Patriots since the prize was instituted in 2000? Take a guess.

With three wins of American championship on top of the title that they won in last year's AFC Championship Game, a 37-31 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Patriots now are 58-15 all-time in the American Conference traveler.
The second-place team all-time, the Pittsburgh Steelers, are 31-14 in this championship, which began in 2000. The third-place team all-time, the Indianapolis Colts, are 26-16. Thus, the Patriots have won more games for the AFC traveling championship than the next two teams combined.
The Patriots reached that mark with a 30-14 win on their home field against the New York Jets on Sept. 22. The victory gave the Patriots four in a row for this title, which is a long way short of the best runs they've ever assembled.
The second time the Patriots won this title, they held it for a record 14 games, starting with a 19-13 win at home against the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 19, 2003, and lasting until Oct. 31, 2004, when they fell, 34-20, at Pittsburgh.
The Patriots also held a 10-game title streak bridging the 2007-08 seasons, a nine-game streak bridging the 2014-15 seasons and a six-game run bridging the 2017-18 seasons.
