Robert Kraft Invites Family of Fallen Peabody Firefighter James Rice to Patriots’ Playoff Game

Robert Kraft and the Patriots organization will honor the memory of a fallen on firefighter on Saturday night by inviting James Rice's family to Gillette Stadium for New England's divisional playoff game. 

Rice passed away on Dec. 23 while fighting a fire in Peabody. He was an 11-year veteran of the Peabody Fire Department.

WCVB reports that Rice's family — his wife and three children — will be guests of the Patriots for their playoff game against the Denver Broncos. The three children will also serve as the Patriots' honorary co-captains.
