With no game on Sunday, a few Red Sox players made their way to Gillette Stadium to take in the Patriots-Cowboys matchup.
It was a theme of the day, as Patriots running back Damien Harris arrived prior to the Sunday kickoff wearing a Red Sox jacket:
He wore it for his postgame interview, too, despite the loss.

On Friday, Texas native Gunner Olzewski threw his support behind his adopted town.
He said he was an Astros fan growing up in Alvin, Texas, home of Nolan Ryan.
“For sure, but now, I’m a Boston guy,” he said.
Game 3 of the American League Championship Series will get underway at Fenway Park on Monday at 8:08 p.m. Boston and Houston are tied at one game apiece. See the full schedule here.
