It was a lit game, that catch for Edelman was bonkers!

Think about having to hold opponent to 0pts and get a FG, 2 TD's WITH both requiring 2pt convert.

Overtime is pure luck...Whoever wins toss is at advantage
First touchdown should not decide the game. The other team did not get fair chance...
I am not a Atlanta fan but just an observation.

Holy moley! Insane comeback! Greatest comeback in Super Bowl history and Brady just cemented all doubts as the greatest QB ever!

Brady is too classy to do this, but I'd like to see him give Goodell the middle finger when he hands Brady the Super Bowl trophy.

tom brady is incredible. the man is a living legend. the greatest comeback i have seen. i wanted to stop watching the train wreck. i even gave up of them hoping they just score a couple of points so they didn't get blown out.

the pats put on the greatest comeback in superbowl history. a 25 point deficit in the 3rd. 31 unanswered points. one of the best football games i've witnessed. just raw determination to win. tom brady for superbowl MVP for sure.

I agree, I think OT should give both teams the chance to score.

If a FG or TD is scored first, the other team should be given the chance to match or exceed the first score and if they don't, then the game is over.

Ya, so if the defender flicked his leg and the ball touched the turf it would've been incomplete? What a freaking sick catch.

I can't even...is the math there? HOOWWW????? I can't add lol.

Once they got the TD, it was over, felt like the 2pt would be easy. Then Ryan's pathetic drive acting as if they lost already. Can't match their mental toughness....man.....

That's true...seems like a crappy rule, but Ryan's last drive showed he flaked out. He was gone. Even if ATL got the ball somehow I doubt he would respond w/ a TD of his own.

Pats should never give up Edelman, guy is a beast! Trio of Edelman, Amendola, and Gronk.

The receivers did amazing for Pats, Blount did nothing for the run game. It was all the work of the other guy at RB position, james white

If Gronk was in Pats would have won sooner. Great great game, I personally stopped watching at the half feeling deflated.

Yeah the ball bounced off the defenders leg, there were 3 falcons and 1 pats player in that battle during the catch.

The pats were down 19 because the kicker missed the extra pt on a TD. If he made that extra pt kick it would only be 18pt deficit.

8pts x 2 (td with 2pt convert) + 3pt fg

If they were only down 18 then all they need is:

8pt (td with 2pt convert) + 7pt (regular td) + 3pt fg

It was just a rhetorical question...I still can't believe it.

Feel sorry for those folks down south, such cruelty.

Incredible game.

I was shocked like everyone else but said it many times Belichick is the best at halftime adjustments. I even tweeted it. :)

Brady the G.O.A.T.!!!!
