    And he could still win 3-5 more according to this morning’s reports.

    #JulianCaughtIt

    Brady was 0-for-9 on his last 9 tosses to Edelman. This one went differently.

    Tommy is always one step ahead.

    Frozen Ropes from Matty Ice

    Ryan led the NFL with a 136.1 passer rating on deep passes this year. His performance hasn’t changed on the big stage.

    What could have been...

    - Julio Jones, Probably.

  43. Clock Icon4:09 am

    Never Count Out New England

    After 17 unanswered points and a key turnover, a genius two-point conversion has this thing down to a one possession game.

  44. Clock Icon2:40 am

    Lot of Game Left!

    The Falcons’ first turnover of the postseason comes at a crucial point. Is it Brady time?

  45. Clock Icon2:38 am

    The Internet Is Undefeated

    Jarrett had just three sacks all season. In just one game, he has become a household name and the father of a 39-year old. Big day for Grady.

  46. Clock Icon2:34 am

    🎶 Hello Darkness, My Old Friend… 🎶

    Brady will be seeing Grady Jarrett in his nightmares for years to come.

  47. Clock Icon2:34 am

    Grady, Meet America. America, Meet Grady.

    Jarrett was an absolute terror on that drive. He's sacked Brady 3 times tonight and fully exposed the Pats' O-line.

  48. Clock Icon2:28 am

    Matty Nice!

    Ryan is on pace to enter the record books with one of the greatest Super Bowl performances of all time.

    Classic Rovell. Throwing fuel on the fire at just the right moment.

    Too Little, Too Late?

    The Pats turned to the run game on that drive, and shocker, it WORKED. Brady finds White for the score, but Gostowski doinks the extra point.

  54. Clock Icon2:00 am

    *Turns Up Outkast*

    This party may be unprecedented.

    Did You Know He Played for the Browns?

    Gabriel made Butler look silly on that play, but nothing surprises us anymore. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  56. Clock Icon1:49 am

    So Uncharacteristic

    The Pats’ fourth drop of the game proved costly. They could have capitalized on prime field position this drive, but Edelman’s drop on 3rd and 12th is forcing them to punt.

  57. Clock Icon1:40 am

    Comeback Starts… NOW

    Edelman returns the punt 34 yards and the Pats are in business on their first possession of the second half.

  58. Clock Icon1:43 am

    Scratch That…

    Edelman got a toe on the line, seven yards are taken off his return.

    Not This Again...

    Anything to get an edge, right? Jokes aside, Brady needs to have an epic performance in the 2nd half to make this a game. The last time the Pats trailed by 18+ at the half? November 24, 2013 against the Broncos. It was 24-0. The Patriots won the game.
