The mayor of Boston has ordered the city to “fire up the duck boats” for the New England Patriots’ victory parade following the team’s come-from-behind 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Democratic Mayor Marty Walsh took to Twitter late Sunday night to offer his congratulations “to the greatest team, the greatest coach and the greatest quarterback of all time.”

A. J. Cann Authentic Jersey Walsh said a parade celebrating the championship will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday. He said the Pats “have made Boston and New England proud.”
The Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins have all celebrated championships in recent years by climbing aboard duck boats, amphibious vehicles normally used to show tourists around town.
This is the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl win. McVay also made an excellent first hire in defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who will have a fair bit of talent to work with, including the NFL’s best defensive tackle in Aaron Donald.
But he was also one of the most cantankerous characters in the game, one who routinely, and publicly, clashed with his biggest stars. If ever there was a coach who had the potential to exacerbate Cousins’ trust issues, it was Karl. To compound problems, sources say, Cousins was assured by management that Karl wouldn’t be hired, despite rumors to the contrary.
