MUST SEE: Best of Patriots Opening NightMark L. Baer - USA TODAY Sports

Thursday night’s NFL season opener was the final celebration commemorating the Patriots fourth Super Bowl Championship at Gillettte Stadium and it didn’t disappoint.

Local Irish punk band the Dropkick Murphys played an opening set to fire up the Foxboro faithful.

The moment everyone was waiting for. The Patriots unveil the 2014 Super Bowl Championship banner to the backdrop of Hip Hop artist T-Pain singing “All I Do Is Win ” with the Springfield Symphony Orchestra.

Former players Willie McGinest, Ty Law, Troy Brown, and owner Robert Kraft were introduced to the crowd carrying all four Lombardi trophies.

The entire banner unveiling can be seen below.

A secret before the game, the fans received cards at their seats that displayed this message across the stadium.

The Patriots also passed out small miniature, replica banners of the banner that would have been raised if Tom Brady still had to serve his four game suspension.

And lastly before the game came to it’s conclusion, the fans had a QUESTION for the NFL Commissioner who decided to skip out on the event for the first time in his tenure at the position.

Overall it was a fun and successful return to football for the defending champions and their fans, closing the book on the 2014 season and earning their first win of 2015 by a final score of 28-21.

The Patriots are on to Buffalo September 20th.
