FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots announced Thursday that former offensive lineman Matt Light and former running Kevin Faulk will serve as New England's honorary game captains in Sunday's AFC championship game against the Baltimore Ravens at Gillette Stadium.
The former Pats, who played their entire careers in New England and helped the Patriots become one of the most successful NFL teams over the last decade, announced their retirements in 2012.
Each were honored with special halftime ceremonies during a pair of regular-season home games, which allowed fans the opportunity to thank the players for their meritorious service to the team.
Faulk and Light played key roles in helping the Patriots win three Super Bowls in a four-year span. Each played in six AFC championship games and celebrated five AFC championships.
