    This week's cover of Sports Illustrated features Super Bowl champions -- the New England Patriots!

    The Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Sunday's Super Bowl in Arizona.

    Star quarterback Tom Brady was given his third Super Bowl MVP trophy after the game, tying him with Joe Montana. He was also awarded with his fourth Lombardi Trophy.

    Prior to Sunday's win, the Patriots had lost three straight Super Bowls since winning three in four years a decade ago.

    Malcom Butler intercepted Russell Wilson's pass in the end zone with 20 seconds left to give the Patriots a Super Bowl win!

    An estimated 114.4 million people watched New England's thrilling victory, making it the fifth time in six years that a Super Bowl game has set a record for the most-watched event in U.S. television history.

    A victory parade for the Patriots will be held in Boston on Wednesday at 11 a.m. The parade will start at the Prudential Tower and end at City Hall.

    The parade was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was pushed back due to snow. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says the parade cannot be pushed back again, even though the city is still digging out from the storm.

    The mayor is asking fans who are planning to attend the parade not to perch on snowbanks because of the dangers involved, and to dress appropriately for freezing temperatures.
