Nate Cohn noted that at halftime, atlanta's odds of winning were the same as Hillary Clinton's going into Election Day....

Brady plays the Trump card in the 2nd half

Atlanta's collapse in the second half coincided with all the SMOKE still on the field from the Lady Gaga concert. It reminded them of something...

was waiting for someone to dig that one up.  The next preseason camp after that photo shoot, Matt Light had the entire offensive line pin that picture on their butts so he'd see it his first snap in practice.

Thinking back to that game yesteday, wow.  I'm not a Pats fan but i'm simply in awe of what they were able to do in the second half.  Five straight scoring drives including two two-point conversions against the defense that was giving Brady fits in the first half.  At some point you just sit back and realize you are witnessing something special.  This was kind of like Elway's late game drives, but repeated multiple times in a row.  And for the second time in three years, bad offensive play calling at crunch time opened the door for the Pats to win a Super Bowl.  Brady was absolutely incredible, as was the play calling in the 2nd half.

I thought a big under the radar play was the one late in the first half. 21-0. Brady backed up and hit and the ball floated into the air with Falcons around. Somehow Bennett caught it. They go down and get a field goal. If it's 24 or 28-0 at half don't think the Pats could come back.

thing is, the Pats stopped killing themselves in the 2d half.  The first half, they got that stupid time of possession edge because they had 3 trips inside the 35.  They ended up getting outscored on those possessions 7-3, with the pick six.  The drops were ridiculous, too.  I thought they had dug too deep a hole without a break, but I thought they could move OK against ATL. 

What I don't know is whether Atlanta got a bit to into trying to trade TDs rather than ran the clock.  The 28-12 sack / turnover was on a "we need TDs" kind of play call rather than run and at worst kick a field goal.  It was  3d and 1, I think.  The sack after the Julio Jones inbounds catch was another overly-aggressive call. 

More or less, going into the game, folks thought the Pats would try some ball control with Blount and short passes to keep an explosive offense off the field.  In the 4th quarter, ATL should have been thinking more that way, but, if they are, they may not try the Jones sideline pass :shrug:

I'm still stunned at that outcome, just keep thinking "did we really win that?" so crazy, man we Pats fans have been outrageously fortunate for the last 17 years.

I'm going to call my brother tonight.  Normally, he's asleep around 9-9:30 and up at 4:30 AM.  I wonder if he went to sleep during Gagatime.

oh man for his sake I hope not, I'd never forgive myself if I missed that ending! As it was as soon as it was over I had to paack up food for my company and say my goodbyes and I missed most of the trophy presentation and I really wanted to watch that :(

I've only ever missed 1 Super Bowl, it was about 10 years ago and our roof had multiple feet of snow on it, so much that the satellite dish was covered. 

So yes, I remember the Packers over the Chiefs = Max McGee! 

By the way, very entertaining story about the improbable success he had.

Talked to him.  He stuck it out until Gostkowski missed the PAT.  Went upstairs, took a shower, flipped on the radio a bit.  Heard enough to know something interesting just happened, so went downstairs to check out what was up.  It was just after the Pats got it to 28-20, so he saw Jones's catch, the sack / penalty, and last two TDs and PAT.  He took the whole Monday off to watch coverage and the sport shows.

The opening part of the half-time show, with Lady Gaga at the top of the stadium, then diving off, with the drones in the background, was filmed earlier in the week.
