The New England Patriots are by far the best team in the NFL, and they recently revealed one of their keys to success. 

The New England Patriots, helmed by Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, are by far the team to beat in the NFL right now. And they have been for a long time.

Everyone tries to mimic their style of play and coaching — often unsuccessfully. Patriots personnel are always the most highly sought out coaching candidates every year when teams are trying to fill the positions left behind by those who failed.

Names like Matt Patricia, Josh McDaniels, Brian Flores, Bill O’Brien — all were red hot names after the respective Black Mondays before their job offers in recent years.

But what if food has more to do with the teams’ success than we realize? What if the nutrients that are fueling the most successful team in the NFL are playing a role?

The Patriots recently released the above video, introducing the team’s dietitian, Ted Harper, who is there to help every single one of these players to fuel themselves with the best possible options available.

Harper spent the earlier part of his career helping the US Army Special Ops with dietary guidance. But eventually, he ended up with the New England Patriots.

Backed by proven scientific research, the dietetic field is one of the most important in the health sphere. By hiring Harper, The New England Patriots have taken every possible step to ensure their players can perform to their pique ability come game day.

Check out the video above and meet the man responsible for helping The Patriots to crush the dreams of every other NFL team, every. single. year. ugh.
