WCVB learns that Danny Amendola wears 80, not 81

WCVB tweeted out news of the Patriots' win tonight with a photo of a Patriots player wearing an 81 jersey diving for a ball.

Oops, the station realized pretty quickly - in part because people started wondering why they'd used a photo of Aaron Hernandez:

A news service that provides WCVB some digital content accidentally posted a pic of Aaron Hernandez in connection w/Pats AFC champ win on our social media. It's embarrassing & unacceptable. We apologize & are working w/team to correct so something like this never happens again.
