Jim Nolan, chief operating officer of Gillette Stadium, explained the team can now bring all their people and equipment on every trip. He said they've installed the widest and largest seats the plane can handle, and added five inches of legroom beyond a typical first-class seat.

The Pats are in desperate need of a 'first class' performance. I don't know how a Boeing 767 can assist them with their recent pitiful defensive play, but the extra legroom sure will be nice!

All the action kicks off at 8:25 tomorrow night for Thursday Night Football! Check out The Shark starting at 5:30 with the official Pats Preview.
