After Rally in Foxboro, New England Patriots Arrive in Atlanta

The Patriots are in the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year

The AFC champion New England Patriots have arrived in Atlanta after having a rally in Gillette Stadium earlier in the day.

The Patriots are in the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year, fourth time in the past five years and for the ninth time overall in the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era.

The Patriots are going for their sixth title overall, which would tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most in the Super Bowl era.

Brady told the fans in Foxborough, Massachusetts, "We're not at the end yet. We've got one more to go.''

The Patriots will face the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl next Sunday in Atlanta. The Patriots beat the then-St. Louis Rams for their first title after the 2001 season.

The NFC champion Rams arrived later in the day in the city where they won their only Super Bowl title in the 1999 season, when they beat Tennessee.

The Rams are making their first appearance since losing the game in 2002 that launched the Patriots dynasty.
