WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) —  As the Patriots get ready to take on the Titans, hundreds of their fans gathered Thursday evening for a special rally at the Warwick Mall.

Former players and current cheerleaders were on hand to take pictures and sign autographs. Plus, all five of the team’s Super Bowl rings were on display.

Fans could partake in a raffle for Patriots merchandise and autographed memorabilia, and the R.I. Lottery was there to show off its new “5X Champions” instant game.

In the above video, Eyewitness News reporter Steve Nielsen speaks to fans at the rally, including Warwick Mall owner and superfan Aram Garabedian, who hasn’t missed a Super Bowl since 1987.
