In hindsight, we should have seen it coming.

A few hours before heading to Patriots owner Robert Kraft's house for New England's Super Bowl LIII ring ceremony Thursday, offensive lineman David Andrews posted this on Twitter:

Andrews wasn't lying.

While the entire 2018 Patriots squad reveled in the team's sixth Super Bowl title, Andrews seemed to have some extra juices flowing.

Here's the 26-year-old center challenging quarterback Tom Brady to a beer-chugging contest earlier in the evening:

Andrews arguably lost that contest but was anything but deterred. Here's some incredible footage of Andrews, courtesy of Duron Harmon's Instagram story:

And here's a very, err, "happy" Andrews posing with Brady on the QB's Instagram story:

We'll call this a successful night (and possibly a rough Friday morning).

Anyone who saw Andrews get after it at a recent Boston Bruins playoff game knows he can party with the best of them, and certainly lived up to that reputation Thursday night.
