Patriots rooting guide: Go Buccaneers! Earlier this week, we asked Patriots fans who they would prefer seeing in the Super Bowl and Tampa Bay received 61 percent of the vote — for good reason: Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, who both were foundational players in New England and helped the Patriots win three Super Bowls.
