The customized cleats the Patriots will be wearing on Sunday against the Vikings are straight-up [fire emoji]

20 Patriots participate in the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign


When the New England Patriots play the Minnesota Vikings in week 13, not all of the eyes will be glued to the action on the football field. After all, the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats initiative is entering its third year and 20 members of the Patriots — including head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady — will participate and wear customized cleats on Sunday to show support for a charitable organization of their choice.

As the NFL announced earlier today, each team can designate one home contest over the next three weeks as its very own My Cause, My Cleats game during which customized gear will be worn by those participating. With the game against the Vikings the Patriots’ only game at Gillette Stadium over this three-week stretch, it is only logical that this will be New England’s My Cause, My Cleats game.

Here is a list of the foundations and causes that will be represented (click on the links next to the names to find out more):

RB Rex Burkhead: Team Jack Foundation
