Thousands cheer for Patriots at Super Bowl sendoff in Boston
Mayor Marty Walsh sported a No. 12 Tom Brady jersey as he and other officials led the crowd in cheers before the team left for the airport.
Brady told fans the Patriots will be relying on their support as they face the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday’s NFL title game in Glendale, Arizona. That prompted cheers of “Brady! Brady!”
Dan Connolly, Vince Wilfork, Devin McCourty and Matthew Slater joined team owner Robert Kraft and others on the podium for Monday’s pep rally. The Patriots were catching a midday flight to beat the blizzard bearing down on New England.
