Incredible. I have no real words that everyone else hasn't said.

I will say that I wish no ill will towards the Falcons or their fans. I love Matt Ryan because of his BC days. They just happened to be in the way. We've been on the other side, so taking joy in someone else's loss isn't something I can understand. Just celebrate our win and don't kick others when they are down.

Me in the first half: "Man, why do we let sports affect us this much?"

Me in the second half and OT: "Because it reminds us that anything is possible!"


I chipped a tooth and I think I broke two fingers tonight. Totally worth it.

Brady is the GOAT. There can be no more doubt. Greatest SB ever and the sweetest one. That Edelman catch... I think I've seen that replay over 100 times already. Just unreal.

Oh. And f you Bill Maher!

Congrats to the Patriots! I will always root for the team that my fellow C fans support if not the Chargers. The best comeback victory I've ever watched. Tom Brady is the ****' GOAT.

James White was the MVP :D For sure. What an absurd game. Congrats to the Pats.

I'm still not over the win. I was watching the super bowl in a bar with a couple of friends and I kept telling 'em.

If the Falcons would give Brady a chance, he will bring us home. Down 20 - 28, with the ball on our possession, there is no other I'd trust to bring us home than Brady.

HE IS THE Mother f*#*%ckn GOAT!

And when we won the coin toss, you knew that it was over. He would not let Falcons have another shot.

And this was on the same night Pierce played his last game in Boston.

Sorry to say I turned the game off at about the time late in the 3rd quarter when Brady reportedly looked down the bench, shrugged his shoulders, and raised his palms to the dome. Thing is, he didn't really give up and I really did. Now I have to watch the greatest comeback on video instead of having the thrill of it live. Should have known better!

I'm loving sports right now.

I'm not even the biggest handegg fan out there, but that was incredible.

I dunno how the Falcons comeback from that, they come to Foxborough next season and could be here for banner night. I think that'd be too mean to do to them hah.

I gotta watch those last two drives again, that was as great as any QB has ever played. And don't forget to credit the recievers, they could have been hit by a dump truck and hung on. Danny ****ing Amendola with his first good game of the season ****ing figures. Clutch as ****. Gimme a Dola any day who shows up on the biggest stage vs a Marvin Harrison who goes Danny Phantom in the playoffs.

No I watched the whole game. I would never stop watching a Patriots game.

But I thought it was over. I thought there was absolutely no way we could do it. I was basically watching just because I love the team after a certain point. Even texted my friend that "a saner man than I would have turned this off a long time ago."

Glad I'm not sane. Delicious egg all over my face. FROOB MVP

When the Falcons had a first down on the Patriots 23 in the middle of the 4th quarter, three no-gain running plays and a field goal would have sealed the deal. Calling a pass play (on which Ryan was sacked) was an incredible brain fart by Atlanta's coaching staff. The Pats weren't just good, they were lucky.

Pete Carroll was criticized for calling the pass play that led to Malcolm Butler's interception. That criticism was justified, but Carroll's coaching error pales in comparison to what happened last night.
