Football season is a grind, so when the players get a few days off they like to make the most of it, whether that means a bit of R&R in a warm locale or a visit with family back home.
Here's what some of your Patriots got up to during the bye week.
Tom and Gisele headed straight for an exotic locale that looks a lot like paradise to us. It's not clear exactly where they vacationed, but Gisele had previously been at Sao Paulo Fashion Week, so we have a hunch it may have been sunny Brazil.
Tom isn't the only one who escaped to a warmer climate. Vince and Bianca Wilfork also went south, but only as far as Florida.
And on the flight, it seems the two had some fun looking through old IDs.
The Patriots wide receiver paid a visit to his alma mater, Louisiana State University. He watched his former team take on Alabama and got some grub at popular sports bar Walk-On's.
Like the Bradys and Wilforks, the Chung family also opted for a sea and sun vacation.
Shane went back to school – high school, that is. The running back showed up to support his former team, the Valencia Vikings. Looks like it was quite a game!
We're not certain what Darrelle did with the days off, but one thing's for sure: he reminded us that he's one of the most style-conscious players in the NFL.
