Unbelievable game. Nothing but respect for Brady, you really cannot question him being the greatest.

This is gonna hurt the Falcons big time. Will they face the same fate their divisional rivals had the season just gone after losing the big one.

I can't believe what happened. I knew I had to be up at 6:00 this morning to get ready for work so I actually went to bed at 28-9. The missed XP kinda felt like it summed up our night to that point. My wife work up early and checked what happened, waking my up at 4:15 with "The Pats won!"... I actually said "No they didn't." at first, half asleep. She said watch the rest, so I did on Gamepass. Unbelievable. Didn't go back to sleep after but 2 hours sleep feels like 20 right now I'm so energised haha

Gotta feel for the Falcons they were better for almost 3 quarters of football there. Hopefully that young team can build from this rather than be destroyed by it. Hell of a season for them.

Great game, enjoyed roughly a quarter of it. G.O.A.T quaterback and coach.

Commiserations to all Falcons fans. Genuinely felt at 28-3 down "at least the better team won and it's not going to feel like if only this little thing had gone the other way".

A huge laugh in the face of any "neutral" who would support anyone but the Patriots though.

2 hours sleep, rocking the energy drink at work. This is what lifes about

Still reeling about the game, had like 3 people comment at work saying "Did you stay up and see it?" "What happened?" all of whom are not really fans of NFL.

Amazing game.

This attitude is exactly why most neutrals support anyone but the Patriots (unless they're playing the Steelers in my case).

Great game though, respect to NE for the comeback, but Matty "Ice" just can't take that sack.

Much as I hate to say it, great comeback by the Patriots.

Roll on Twickenham ticket sales and the draft, it's going to be a long few months.

This. For all of their late 'failings' in this game that was criminal.

Quinn/Shanahan are getting flak for play calls, but are the players absolved from blame? Ryan has to get rid of the ball, players have to block etc.

Not a huge believer in the 'they've been here before' advantage either, but cleary it was in full effect against a 'young' Falcons team.
