BOSTON (CBS) — This weekend, 98.5 The Sports Hub debuted “Rough Injustice: The 1976 New England Patriots.” It was a season that showed remarkable promise for New England’s football team but ended in heartbreak, thanks largely to a controversial roughing the passer call on Ray “Sugar Bear” Hamilton that breathed new life into the Raiders.

Despite not winning the Super Bowl, the 1976 team is still considered one of the best Patriots teams of all time.
