The New England Patriots started their 2015 season pretty well. Not only did the team beat the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers 28-21 to capture their first victory of the new year, the Patriots also celebrated their final one of last year: winning Super Bowl XLIX.
As defending world champions, the Patriots and their fans have earned the right to celebrate winning their fourth Lombardi trophy in Foxboro and in front of a national audience. And celebrate they did - in spectacular fashion.
Patriots Hall of Famers Ty Law, Troy Brown and Willie McGinest were an essential part of the pre-game festivities and, together with team owner Robert Kraft, presented the team's four Super Bowl trophies (be careful, though, they are heavy at the top).
After the trophy presentation, the team unveiled its newest championship banner to the tunes of "All I Do Is Win" live performed by T-Pain. The song was the perfect tune for yesterday, as all the Patriots did was win.
