Because traffic headed to Gillette Stadium for tonight's game will compete with the usual Monday rush-hour traffic, the Patriots are encouraging fans headed to Foxborough to depart earlier than usual.
Parking lots around Gillette will open at 4:30 p.m., and the stadium gates will open at 6:30 p.m.
Fans also have the option of taking the MBTA "Football Train" to Gillette. Trains will depart South Station and Providence, and drop passengers off at the stadium station. For more information on the MBTA option, visit their website.
