As the New England Patriots capped off their incredible Super Bowl comeback, and won their fifth title, the sports world continued to sit at the edge of their seat.
There would be no more football to play this year. There would be no more playoff games. There would be no more dramatic, come from behind victories.
Yet, the sports world continued to wait and watch with baited breath, to find out how the Patriots did it this time.
On Sunday, New England finished off their 2016 NFL season with a 17-2 record, and completed the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. Down 28-3 in the first half, the Patriots somehow flipped the script, in the final 30 minutes. Quarterback Tom Brady, who had been mediocre throughout the first three quarters, suddenly caught fire in the final fifteen minutes. Brady threw for nearly five hundred yards, and New England scored 19 points in the fourth quarter, to send the game into overtime.
The extra period was merely a formality, as Brady and the Patriots offense could no longer be stopped. They marched 75 yards on the opening drive, to win the Super Bowl’s only overtime game, in it’s 51 year history.
So how did they do it?
Did they jam the Falcon’s helmet radios? Were they spying on their practices with drones? Were they piping nitrous oxide into NRG Stadium in Houston? Were the players ingesting elephant blood?
The sports world is waiting to find out what will be revealed this time around.
If history has taught us anything, it is that the charges are coming.
