Patriots parade celebrating 6th Super Bowl win

The New England Patriots and their fans are ready to keep celebrating the team’s sixth NFL title after defeating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII. Sunday night’s game was both a win for Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick and Boston, where a victory parade will rumble through the streets Tuesday.

Patriots parade route through Boston

The festivities kick off from the Hynes Convention Center. The parade through the city of Boston will travel down Boylston Street, Tremont Street and ending on Cambridge Street. Pats players are urging a horde of fans to join the team.

The parade route through the city of Boston runs down Boylston Street at Hereford Street, then left onto Tremont Street to Cambridge Street, where it will end at City Hall. There will not be a rally in City Hall Plaza.

The decision for not holding a rally was made “for a number of reasons,” said Boston Marty Walsh at a press conference Monday. “But one is really about making sure that our public safety officials aren’t overworked in the sense of what happened this weekend. And also, just logistically, a lot of the players head back home after the rally.”

Boston Weather forecast for the parade

Unlike the snowy, cold parade two years ago, Tuesday is supposed to be a beautiful day for a championship parade, CBS Boston reports. The Patriots are expected to roll down the street in eye-catching duck boats.

CBS Boston said crews there have been busy building platforms, doing safety checks and polishing the duck boats to get ready for the rally.

“We’ve got it down to a science. They know what to do,” said Bob Lawler, general manager of Boston Duck Tours.

There is still confetti stuck to the floorboards of the duck boats from the Red Sox World Series Parade in October. Just three months later, it’s time for another celebration.

Patriots players call on all fans to show up

Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman, moments after Sunday’s big win in Atlanta, told reporters he expects at least 2 million people to show up Tuesday for the parade.

Pats safety Devin McCourty has echoed Edelman’s call for a huge showing in Boston.

“Hopefully the weather works out. Skip work. Everybody’s off in Massachusetts. We’re gonna party,” said McCourty. It looks like his wish will come true.

Drew Brees passed Peyton Manning to become the N.F.L.’s leader in career passing yards, breaking the record in the second quarter of a 43-19 win over the Washington Redskins on Monday.

Brees, the prolific New Orleans Saints quarterback who is in his 18th season, came into the game in third place, behind both Manning’s 71,940 and Brett Favre’s 71,838. He passed Favre with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Josh Hill, and then exceeded Manning’s total with a 62-yard catch-and-run touchdown by Tre-Quan Smith.

Play was briefly suspended as Brees celebrated with teammates on the field before being greeted on the sideline by his family. The ball from the touchdown pass was immediately handed to a representative of the Pro Football Hall of Fame so it could make its way to Canton, Ohio.
