|NEW ORLEANS --
For New England Patriots standout rookie defensive end Chandler Jones, being at the Super Bowl is essentially a bittersweet experience.
He was almost a participant in this game, but his Patriots fell short against the Ravens in an AFC championship game loss at Gillette Stadium.
However, he's here to cheer on his older brother, Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones.
"I'm here for moral support," Chandler Jones said. "He's my brother. Even though it's messed up that we lost, he's my brother and I'm here to support him. I wouldn't go so far to say I'm a Ravens fan right now, but I'm here for my brother."
Arthur Jones had a breakthrough season, recording a career-high 57 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks with one forced fumble in six starts. In the playoffs, Jones has seven tackles and a fumble recovery.
