WATCH: Patriots locker room celebration after clinching AFC East and first round bye

The Patriots were thrilled to win!

The New England Patriots celebrated their win against the Denver Broncos by breaking out the hat and t-shirts as AFC East champions. The players were ecstatic to win the division and it was heartwarming to watch TE Martellus Bennett share the moment with a group of linebackers that had never won a division before.

“It wasn’t perfect, but we played the game we wanted to play it,” head coach Bill Belichick said after the game, before turning focus towards the Jets and noting the short week turnaround.

“These moments we can’t take them for granted,” captain Matthew Slater said as he broke down the huddle.
