The Patriots were able to push up their departure from London on Monday morning, and have landed safely in Boston at Logan Airport just ahead of the worst of the wind and rain caused by Hurricane Sandy. The team adjusted its plans to prevent being delayed due to the weather.
According to flightaware.com, the Patriots' flight was one of just three flights to land at Logan in the last two hours.
Upon arrival, several players reacted to being home via Twitter. Here is a sampling:
Another Patriots touchdown! This time at Logan Airport.
