Eagles outlast Patriots for epic Super Bowl victory

The NFL has had a rough year, but the league keeps delivering with incredible Super Bowl games and great finishes. Last night was no different as Nick Foles and the underdog Eagles defeated Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots dynasty in an instant classic.

The 41-33 win came down to another excellent game plan by Doug Pederson who has established himself as one of the best and most innovative coaches in the NFL. Last night he was able to beat the master and Nick Foles played just as well as legendary Tom Brady.

They’ll be celebrating this one in Philly for a LONG time . . .

Atlanta Falcons blow the Super Bowl

The Atlanta Falcons led the Super Bowl 28-3. Late in the fourth quarter, they had an 8-point lead with minutes left and the ball just beyond the New England 20-yard line. A field goal seals the game and a Super Bowl title, and yet on second down Kyle Shanahan called a pass play and Matt Ryan took a devastating sack.

Of course New England deserves credit for the comeback, and they’ll get plenty as the New England dynasty and the Tom Brady legacy will be discussed ad nauseum. But the story of this game is the Atlanta collapse.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots destined for a Super Bowl return?

The New England Patriots have been one of the dominant forces in the National Football League for almost two decades and the main reason for their consistency at the top has been down to Tom Brady’s ability at the quarterback position.

When the Patriots selected Brady with the 199th pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, nobody expected the former Michigan man to break into the starting roster let alone enjoy an illustrious career at the top level. During his time at Gillette Stadium, Brady has won four Super Bowl rings, three Super Bowl MVP awards and 11 Pro Bowl selections – achievements that show just how impressive he has been for the franchise.

Terrell Owens on Hall of Fame, HGH use, being #BolderThanBold

2016 NFL Hall of Fame nominee and pro football legend Terrell Owens has teamed up with Butterfinger to make the Super Bowl bolder than ever before with the Bolder Than Bold campaign by asking players to bring back the boldest moves on the field – the touchdown dances. Butterfinger has offered to cover up to $50,000 for fines that may be incurred by any player boldly celebrating in the endzone.

In the video above, we asked T.O. about his potential Hall of Fame induction, if he ever used HGH or PEDs, and his favorite endzone celebration.

Seahawks on verge of luckiest Super Bowl ever; end with biggest choke job ever

This was the greatest Super Bowl ever. The ending was stunning in so many ways, from Tom Brady leading a fourth quarter comeback against the Seattle defense, only to be followed by another miraculous catch that seemed to spell doom again for the Patriots, to what can easily be described as the worst play call in NFL history.

Here are some thoughts with some real time tweets mixed in:

– I’m not a Russell Wilson fan, and I wasn’t looking forward to eating even more crow had he managed to win his second straight Super Bowl. Still, there’s no way I can blame Wilson for the last interception that cost Seattle the game. We can pick apart his throw and the decision (some are explaining you have to throw that ball low at the goal line), but this all comes back to Pete Carroll and Darrell Bevell making that asinine play call. Also, looking at this shot below, you can see why Wilson threw the ball and just how brilliant Malcolm Butler was as he broke to the ball to make that play:
