However, if you're on an NFL team, you're afforded better travels plans, which help you overcome the odds. That's exactly what the Patriots were able to do Monday morning.
After conflicting reports about the Pats' travel plans returning from Sunday's win over the Rams in London, the team's Twitter feed announced that the team landed safely in Boston on Monday morning ahead of what's expected to be the worst part of the storm.
Another Patriots touchdown! This time at Logan Airport.

Early reports indicated that the Patriots may actually be stuck in London ahead of the storm. Other reports indicated that the Pats had taken off from London, with their destination unknown. However, they were apparently able to get in before the worst of the storm, landing at Logan on Monday morning.
Safety Tavon Wilson likely summed up the thoughts of all of his teammates when he tweeted this Monday morning.
Can't wait to get to my bed.
