BOSTON (CBS) — One of the Patriots’ biggest issues this offseason was where they’re going to hang their latest Super Bowl banner at Gillette Stadium.
The Patriots had their four Super Bowl banners hanging on the south side of Gillette Stadium, but there wasn’t any room for their shiny new Super Bowl LI banner. It’s quite the issue to have, one that was no doubt the envy of the rest of the NFL.

The Patriots will raise their Super Bowl LI banner on September 7 before kicking off the 2017 NFL season against the Kansas City Chiefs.
