The New England Patriots began their defense of the Super Bowl 51 title as they began organized team activities on Thursday.

This is the first full OTA by the team since they won the Super Bowl back in early February.  Also at the practice was the Boston College women's lacrosse team that was given a tour of the facility in Foxborough by Head Coach Bill Belichick.  The Eagles will be playing in the NCAA Division I Final Four in lacrosse at the stadium this weekend.

New England will play their first pre-season game on August 10th when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars.
