In less than a half hour, the New England Patriots will take the field at the Super Bowl for the ninth time – the most appearances in NFL history.
Tom Brady and company are seeking their sixth Super Bowl victory, which would tie the Patriots with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl victories in league history. The most decorated quarterback in NFL history is in search of one more.
In the lead-up to the game, there was a clear crowd advantage for the Patriots. According to multiple people on site, the Patriots outnumber the Rams 10-1 in terms of fan attendance.
One of the Patriots fans has stolen the attention of social media. A Patriots fan thought it would be a good idea to wear an Aaron Hernandez jersey to the game today.
Check it out.

It’s an interesting decision, considering Hernandez was imprisoned for murder.
Several different media analysts have posted a photo of his fan so he’s certainly stealing the attention of those at the game – though not for the greatest of reasons.
New England and Los Angeles are slated for a 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff. The game will be broadcast on CBS with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo on the call.
