The Patriots sent out tickets to their season-ticket holders this week, and the booklet has a picture of quarterback Tom Brady on the cover with the words "Be Here. Be Heard" on the bottom. The close-up picture of Brady's face, while wearing his helmet and having his mouth open wide in a show of emotion, is the same one on the cover of the team's media guide.
Here is the rundown of who is on each ticket:
vs. Buccaneers -- Matthew Slater
vs. Giants -- Devin McCourty
vs. Jets -- Tedy Bruschi (Patriots Hall of Fame inductee)
vs. Buccaneers -- Tom Brady
vs. Saints -- Vince Wilfork
vs. Dolphins -- Logan Mankins
vs. Steelers -- Jerod Mayo
vs. Broncos -- Rob Gronkowski
vs. Browns -- Rob Ninkovich
vs. Bills -- Nate Solder
There is also a ticket for Monday's season-ticket holder practice that includes a practice photo of two offensive lineman blocking as quarterback Tom Brady throws downfield. Aaron Hernandez is present in the background. Obviously, the tickets were printed well in advance of Hernandez's murder charge and subsequent release.
