Head coach Bill Belichick showed off his eight Super Bowl rings, six of which he won with the Patriots and two as defensive coordinator of the New York Giants in 1986 and 1990.

Veteran quarterback Tom Brady also brandished his six Super Bowl rings, which he all won as the starting signal-caller for the Patriots. To show his appreciation and gratitude to fans who have supported him through thick and thin, Brady posted a short but touching message for them on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Earlier, beer chugging has become a regular act for NFL quarterbacks, started by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers during a Milwaukee Bucks game. After Rodgers failed to finish a glass of beer, fellow quarterbacks, including Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions, Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, Mitchell Trubisky of the Chicago Bears and Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills all got into action.

This was not the first time that Brady finished a glass of beer as he did it on national television during the Stephen Colbert show last year. During the celebration, Brady was reunited with teammates who were part of their march to their sixth Super Bowl win. Also present during the celebration was wide receiver Josh Gordon, who played 11 games for the Patriots last season before he was suspended indefinitely for violating the terms of his reinstatement under the league's substance abuse policy.
