The New England Patriots were greeted to over 35,000 fans sending them off to Atlanta for their tenth Super Bowl appearence of all-time, and their ninth in the Tom Brady era.

Head Coach Bill Belichick thanked the large crowd for their attendance. 

“This is an awesome crowd. Just tremendous. This is the biggest sendoff we’ve ever had,” he said.

Despite the fact Brady has won five rings in his career, the Patriots have embraced the role of an underdog. Brady got the crowd to chant several times “We’re still here.”

Super Bowl LIII is scheduled for February 3 with kickoff set for 5:30 p.m. Central Standard Time.
