The New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII, and the team is now getting ready for another Super Bowl. Gillette Stadium has just received a makeover.
The Patriots updated the outer facade of the stadium Thursday to reflect their huge win. The five Super Bowls the Patriots won were listed on one of the Gillette Stadium walls. Workers have now added “LIII” to the wall.

“We’re asking Gillette to stop sponsoring Gillette Stadium, the
home stadium for the New England Patriots — owned by Robert Kraft, who was just

He may be freed of charges as the video evidence was probably obtained illegally. Kraft’s legal team is doing their best to save his reputation.
