It will go down in the books as the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. Rallying from a seemingly insurmountable 28-3 deficit, the New England Patriots would go on to beat the Atlanta Falcons in the first-ever overtime of The Big Game.
This Pats squad is filled with personalities, and fans along the parade path will be decked out in Patriots red, white, and blue. This year, though, they’ll be covered in a wintry mix (and, quite possibly, more Gronk beers). And after a victory so sweet, after a season that started with Tom Brady’s four-game Deflategate suspension at the hands of Roger Goodell and ended with one of the wildest football games ever, who among them will care? As Mayor Walsh said, “Fire up the duck boats!"
We’ve been here before, of course, but that victory is the sweetest for many of us Pats fans. Whether or not you gave up hope at halftime, which we admittedly did, the victory party is still going, with another city-wide celebration to come. Here’s all the info you need on how to bask in the Boston glow of one of the greatest games of all time.
