Gillette Stadium is all gussied up and ready for Sunday's AFC Championship game between the Patriots and Ravens.
Workers painted the logos on the field today.
A couple other notes for you:
- An AFC Championship party at CBS Scene in Foxborough will feature a "Give us your best Gronk" football spiking contest. Prizes -- game tickets, autographed memorabilia and Patriots gear -- will be given in men's, women's and children's categories. Event runs from 4 to 7 p.m.
- Modell's Sporting Goods will give free hand and toe warmers to any fan who shows an AFC Championship game ticket at one of its stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut or New Hampshire. The promotion was a response to the Patriots handing out 20,000 sets of hand warmers for last week's game vs. Denver. Sunday's high temperature, according to The Weather Channel, will be 34.
