Patriots To Honor Ty Law At Halftime vs. Jets

BOSTON (CBS) -- There was already one big party at Gillette Stadium for Ty Law this year, but the three-time Super Bowl champ deserves another.

The Patriots will honor Law, who was enshrined in the team's Hall Of Fame earlier this season, at halftime of Thursday night's game between the New York Jets.

A four-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro while with the Patriots, fans selected Law as the 22nd member and 20th player to enter the Patriots Hall of Fame, and thousands lined up outside The Hall at Patriot Place on August 1st to watch Law don his red jacket.

Now fans at Thursday's game will get to show him some more love at halftime. Law will be introduced by Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft and will be joined on the field by some former teammates, including Patriots Hall of Famer Troy Brown, Willie McGinest, Lawyer Milloy, Otis Smith and Deion Branch.

Law was originally selected by the Patriots in the first round of the 1995 NFL Draft, and went on to play 10 seasons with the Patriots from 1995-2004. Kraft credits Law as one of the key building blocks to the team's dynasty of the early 2000s, when they won three Super Bowl championships in four years.

It's not hard to understand why fans love Law so much. He owns the franchise records for interceptions (36, tied with Raymond Clayborn), interception return yards (583) and interceptions returned for touchdowns (six), and had a knack for coming up big in the biggest situations for the Patriots.

He also picked off Peyton Manning seven times as a Patriot, which earns you plenty of bonus point throughout New England.

Law played 15 seasons in the NFL, with stops in New York with the Jets (2005 and 2008), Kansas City (2006-07) and Denver (2009) following his decade with the Patriots.
