Shalise Manza Young posted a photo on Twitter a little while ago, showing the field as the grounds crew is preparing it for this week's matchup against the Saints.


The grounds crew has begun preparations for Thursday night's matchup against New Orleans.
The Saints will be here in Foxboro tomorrow as the team begins their joint sessions, with the first practice scheduled for 9:00am - 11:00 am according to the team's official website.

Belichick held his press conference this morning and told the media that the majority of work will take place on the two practice fields behind Gillette, and not inside the stadium.

After a weekend off, Belichick says that the rest did everyone good, and he's looking forward to getting back to work.

"I think the rest did everyone good, both physically and mentally," said Belichick. "Today will be a big day for us in terms of getting back on track and building on what we put down as a foundation last week."

Today New Orleans is in Washington DC for a visit at the White House. They'll then head off to Walter Reed Army Medical Center to visit military members before boarding a plane to fly into Providence, Rhode Island later today.
