A crowd at least 1,000 fans deep cheered on the Super Bowl champion Patriots as they arrived back in New England.
The team landed at T.F. Green in Rhode Island just after 2 p.m. and headed back to Gillette Stadium.
Adoring fans like Sam Macasay wore a lot of bling and cowboy boots, showing team pride in every way possible.
"They're bringing the real one back and I'm here to see it," said Macasay.
Coach Bill Belichick hopped off the team bus in front of Gillette Stadium and took a victory lap, high-fiving and waving at the fans.
Gene and Dani Meone are from Haiti and went to cheer on running back Sony Michelle, whose parents are also Haitian immigrants.
Some fans skipped work, and parents pulled kids from class, just to see this dynasty roll through, to thank the team for a job well done.
