After taking part in a send-off rally attended by some 25,000 fans, a six-bus caravan of players, coaches and team staff pulled out of Gillette Stadium's parking lot at 1:30 PM headed for Boston's Logan Airport.
The caravan has a significant escort, including Massachusetts State Police Officers.
Lots of Patriots players boarded the busses wearing new Beats by Dre headphones, reportedly a gift from teammate Chad Ochocinco.
Many players are wearing pretty unique suits for the flight — none more impressive than Brandon Spikes' all-pink ensemble. Deion Branch has a bright white jacket. And Tiquan Underwood has added a Patriots logo shaved into the back of his head, just below his world famous high top fade.
