Prediction: in two weeks time we will learn the Patriots had been filming pre-game drills or perpetrating some other "unwritten rule" just like they've done in the past.

93 PLAYS! That's like something out of Texas Tech

Shouldn't it have been offsetting penalties, replay of down? Instead, the holding penalty set them back 10 yards and took them out of FG range.

NFL is rigged. You can't sit there and say it's not in your make believe fantasy world, but it really is. Another Pats SB is good for the NFL and it was going to happen no matter what.
LOL. Congratulations on your team winning it all last year. Assuming your avatar is your team. And I mean that sincerely.

Holy cow, that game was a roller coaster! I'm glad New England won, but I can't help but think of the ending scene from Patton.

If it's the play I'm thinking of they didn't call the offsetting facemasks. which would have been technically correct, but also pretty weak as facemasks go.

The hold on the other hand was about as solid of a hold as you can have.

One of the pass interference calls against the pats looked like nearly nothing, but TV didn't have a good angle and didn't show any replays of it.

Overall I though the game was called well. There didn't seem to be any cheap penalties. There's always ones you hear and say what? where? But then on replay its pretty clear.

It was the bottom of the 10th, the Red Sox had scored 2 runs in the top of the 10th.

The timing of those flags was pretty crazy, but I also saw several Falcon holds not called (Edelman and Amendola included). These Falcons, coached by Quinn seemed to be channeling the Seahawk DB methodology that says to play very physically, screw up timing, knock guys off their routes, while knowing "the officials won't call holding on every play". There was lots of holding, jersey grabbing last night.

I think the facemask/hands to face was just missed, but agree with others that the game seemed pretty well called overall. Loved that the refs got a few incredibly fast developing plays right on the field, including Jones' securing the ball/toe tap, and Edleman's miracle catch. Don't remember anything being overturned by the booth.

Adding-- I'm not a Pats fan, but do appreciate watching them.

What a great game. We host a Super Bowl party every year, and even with score 28-3 nobody left early.
For those that shut it off early they missed a dandy.

I almost feel like it was two games; first the Falcons blew out the Patriots, then vice versa.
