The New England Patriots made it to the Super Bowl for the fifth time in 12 seasons, and Bill Belichick's team looks like it might make another run.
Sure Tom Brady is 35, but 35 is the new 30 according to the gurus on sports talk radio. Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez will be third year pros, Wes Welker is signed for another year, and the secondary looks pretty good.
So, here's the theme of this week's photo contest: Show us how much you love football. Post pictures of you, the kids, the dog, or even the car decked out in your favorite football gear.
In the caption share your first and last name, what town you're from, where the photo was snapped, and any other information you think we should know.
And OK, if you like another football team outside of New England, or your kids play football, you can share those photos, too.
This is part of Patch’s summer Picture of the Week series, where we’re asking you for your best pictures on a certain topic each week.
As an incentive, the winning submission will get a $75 gift card, plus bragging rights.
We’ll be taking photo submissions each week from 5:45 a.m. Tuesday through noon Friday. Voting will begin at 4 a.m. Saturday and end at 9 a.m. Monday, so make sure to check back over the weekend to vote for your favorite picture.
