FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Three-time Super Bowl Champions. That certainly has a nice ring to it. Or, as 22 Patriots players can attest, that accomplishment comes with three very nice rings. Many of those rings will be seen this Sunday when the players who earned them return to Gillette Stadium for their first of what will likely be many Super Bowl reunions.

When the Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX at the end of the 2004 season, they not only claimed back-to-back championships for just the eighth time in NFL history, but they also earned their third Super Bowl title in four years. The Patriots became just the second team in the Super Bowl era (1966-present) to accomplish the feat and the only franchise to do so in the salary cap era (1994-present).

On February 6, 2005 the Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21 in Super Bowl XXXIX. Take a look back at some photos from that day.

"Collectively, these 22 players will always share a special bond," said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. "While individual Super Bowl teams will certainly be celebrated in the future, these 22 players represent the greatest era in franchise history and one of the greatest accomplishments in NFL history. It is always fun to participate in reunions with former players. The stories they share from their playing days are always entertaining and it is always fun to see the ovations the players get from our fans. I look forward to seeing them and sharing those experiences with them."

Of the 22 players who earned three Patriots Super Bowl rings, only Patriots QB Tom Brady and Indianapolis Colts K Adam Vinatieri are still playing. In addition, Larry Izzo (New York Giants), Mike Vrabel (Houston Texans) and Adrian Klemm (UCLA) are currently on active coaching staffs and will not be able to attend this weekend. The 17 other players from those three Super Bowl teams are listed below and expected to return to Gillette Stadium to be honored at halftime of Sunday's Patriots game against the Broncos.

In honor of the 10th Anniversary of the 3x Super Bowl Championships, check out photos from the 22 players that were a members of all three teams.
