BOSTON (AP) – The Latest on the Boston parade celebrating the New England Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl win (all times local):

12:05 p.m.

Super Bowl MVP quarterback Tom Brady and his teammates are taking turns hoisting the Lombardi Trophy to the roars of adoring Patriots fans.

Tens of thousands of people clad in New England garb are lining the streets of Boston for a snowy parade celebrating the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl victory.

Some grinning players aboard the World War II-era amphibious duck boats carrying the team through downtown are waving black “Roger That” T-shirts bearing the likeness of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

There’s no love for Goodell in New England, which came from behind to defeat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime Sunday.

Goodell handed Brady a four-game suspension at the start of the 2016 season for his role in the “Deflategate” scandal.

The Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots are getting their moment in the snow.

World War II-era amphibious vehicles known as duck boats are carrying MVP quarterback Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick and the rest of the team through downtown Boston.

Tens of thousands of jubilant fans have braved snow squalls and chilly winds to celebrate the Patriots’ fifth Super Bowl title. Many are shouting: “Brady! Brady!” and “TB12!”

Some are holding “Roger That” signs. That’s a reference to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who handed Brady a four-game suspension at the start of the 2016 season for his role in the “Deflategate” scandal.

Security is tight for Tuesday’s parade. The route includes the Boston Marathon finish line where three spectators were killed and 260 others wounded in bombing attacks in April 2013.

It’s snowing sideways in downtown Boston, but that isn’t stopping tens of thousands of New England Patriots fans from lining a parade route.

Super Bowl MVP quarterback Tom Brady won his fifth championship ring in Sunday’s win against the Atlanta Falcons, and he’s a crowd favorite. Ahead of Tuesday’s parade, many fans were shouting: “Brady! Brady! Brady!”

Police are out in force on the streets, urging fans to stay safe along the route.
