FOXBOROUGH -- Before opening the 2019 regular season Sunday night against the Steelers, the Patriots took a few moments to put the caps on their 2018 title run by unveiling their sixth Super Bowl banner at Gillette Stadium.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The pregame ceremony celebrating the six-time champions included live music from Godsmack, who performed while images displaying highlights from past Super Bowl seasons were displayed on a massive screen spread across the field. Godsmack sang the title track from their new album, "When Legends Rise."

The crowd took part in the ceremony thanks to light-up LED wrist bands in the cup holder at each seat.

Six Patriots legends representing past Super Bowl wins in attendance carrying a Lombardi Trophy included Drew Bledsoe, Willie McGinest, Ty Law, Rob Ninkovich, Martellus Bennett and, representing Super Bowl LIII, Robert Kraft. Rob Gronkowski was also in attendance, putting forth a trademark Gronk Spike in the middle of the screen on the field just before the latest banner was unveiled to a display of fireworks.

6 trophies. 6 abs. 1 dent.
