Capped by one of the most remarkable comebacks in NFL postseason history, the New England Patriots captured their 5th Lombardi Trophy in franchise history during last night's game. Members of the Octagon family, guard Teddy Karras and strong safety Patrick Chung, were crucial to the Patriots’ championship-winning season. This was Chung’s second championship victory with the team while Karras earns a championship ring in his rookie season.
