Under Donald Trump's presidency, they are about to be the first championship team to make a visit at the White House.
Patriots' owner Robert Kraft compared his team's remarkable comeback, after being down 21 to 3 at halftime and overtime, to President Trump's unlikely campaign to win the White House.
However, given the extra attention paid to this White House visit, the first by a championship sports team since the highly polarizing and widely unpopular Trump took office, a social-media post by Brady's wife, model Gisele Bündchen could have been noteworthy.
"Along with the parade and ring ceremony, the opportunity and privilege to come to the White House is one of the great things about winning the Super Bowl, so we're very privileged to be here", the coach said. Now here Kraft stood with his friend the president, looking back on a year he said was meaningful for both of them. He is an alumnus of Rancho Cucamonga High School in Rancho Cucamonga, California and the University of Oregon.
"I think I got this", a surprised Spicer told Gronkowski, after the receiver stuck his head through the door of the press room and asked Spicer if he needed help.
Hightower - a two-time Super Bowl champion - said he had already "been there, done that", in reference to the presidential meet and greet, during an appearance on ESPN's Sportscenter. Quarterback Tom Brady skipped it too, but because he wanted to be with his sick mother.

Before that response, the team tweeted a photo with a larger crowd surrounding the president Wednesday.

One person can be employed, but have two jobs, so that would count as two jobs in the payroll survey but one person employed. They added just 16,000 net new jobs in March, the fewest in 15 months, after payrolls had increased by 66,000 in February.
"He persevered to become the 45th president of the United States".
Speaking of Belichick, he wrote Trump a letter during the 2016 election. "With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices, I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't", he said.
"Just a quick story about the coach", Trump began.
On Wednesday, however, Trump was early. And you know what he did?
But perhaps the most uncomfortable moment of the day was when Trump called on Danny Amendola to step forward. "It was much better".
Draw your own conclusions.
TRUMP: Now, immediately to me that means he's going to tone it down 'cause what he said was so nice. Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember.
