While the Patriots are currently in Atlanta, their fans showed up at Gillette Stadium to send them off like only they know how.
One week before the big game, 35,000 fans traveled to Foxborough to catch their favorite players, get pumped up for the Super Bowl and to show their love for the team that’s working toward its sixth ring.
Once Tom Brady took the mic, the already electric crowd dialed up the enthusiasm even further.
Patriots Nation already knows that Tom is the G.O.A.T on the field, but on the stage, he proved that he’s the best when it comes to mic drops. Or, well, mic toss.
Leading the crowd in one of Patriots Nation's newest rallying cries, “We’re Still Here,” Tom tossed the mic to Scott Zolak and shared some love with his teammates before boarding the buses to head off.

Rallying around the guys and showing their love for the team is nothing new for New England. Some fans even turned up to Gillette before the crack of dawn.
No matter what time they arrived,the fans proved football is family. Different generations relished in the moment and reflected on the journey to the Super Bowl. Despite going to other rallies, this one felt different.
“I think it's just that we were down, and people were doubting us. We came back and won, and it’s great for Brady to maybe get a sixth Super Bowl Ring,” Laura Ewell, a fan who attended the rally, said.
Tom wasn’t the only Patriot to energize the crowd.
Georgia native David Andrews, Matthew Slater, Patrick Chung, James White and Devin McCourty electrified Gillette Stadium. The crowd also buzzed as they relived moments from last weekend’s AFC Championship victory. Without a doubt, Patriots fans are the greatest fans of all time, and Patriots players can’t wait to feed off it next Sunday.
