In the Pro Bowl, which was really a glorified touch football game in the rain, the AFC beat the NFC 26-7. The Super Bowl is this Sunday in Atlanta.
An estimated crowd of 35,000 turned out at Gillette Stadium for the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl rally Sunday morning, giving the team an emotional lift before boarding its flight to Atlanta. Bill Belichick, dressed in a suit and tie, then thanked the crowd that filled the entire playing field and lower section of the stadium. The team’s decision to depart Sunday contributed to the large turnout. Last year, the Patriots departed for the Super Bowl on Monday.
In the latest twist to the still-simmering controversy from last Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, there is some concern in league circles about the NFL’s judgment in allowing four game officials who live in Southern California to work the game between the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints.
