Donald Trump gives up on Patriots 'friends' after halftime

That included Julian Edelman's deflected catch on the overtime-forcing drive, a ball that somehow suspended in air, an inch off the ground, until Edelman cradled it in his bright red gloves.

The New England Patriots are slated to take on the Atlanta Falcons for Super Bowl 51 Sunday at NRG Stadium in Houston.

So many celebrities are going to be rooting for the New England Patriots in the 2017 Super Bowl this year.

The pictures were excellent and the words focused on the drama without falling into the trap of melodrama. There had been one decent game the entire postseason, between Green Bay and Dallas, and the Super Bowl was deteriorating into one of the many forgettable blowouts which litter Super Bowl history.

"We made a few mistakes", said quarterback Matt Ryan, who completed 13 of 16 passes for 202 yards through the first three quarters.

So it was. But it was more than that. They played a lot of great teams this year. With a deeply divided American public, it will be interesting to see if exploiting the already polarizing portrayal of the Patriots will lead to bigger ratings. LeGarrette Blount is the team's short-yardage back, but the Patriots made a decision to not substitute by the goal line. For him to recognize that and pull the trigger at the biggest moment of his career and make the play, in the Super Bowl against one of the best teams that has ever played in the Super Bowl in the Seahawks, that was incredible. Shea McClellin was flagged for an illegal formation as Matt Bryant was lining up his extra-point attempt following the second Falcons' score. "Alford, with a pick-six!"

In fact, they're the third worst side this season for converting chances, behind Premier League also-rans Hull and Southampton. He then went on to comment on Hull's performance and implied that they played the referee into their favour.

"I think it should be a great game", coach Bruce Arians said. Imagine if Game 7 of the World Series had been declared over once the Cubs scored in the top of the 10th and there had been no last ups for the Indians. Brady missed a little lob pass to Martellus Bennett.

"That's as good as it gets", Aikman said.

It was a bit of good fortune for White that he was in the game for that chance. Brady completed a pass to Danny Amendola. The Tar Heels star had tied the game with just 4.7 seconds left, hitting a three while off-balance and with a defender quickly closing out on him.

Then came White's game-winner from 2 yards out. Said Buck, "Toss to White". That will continue into Super Bowl LI with arguably the league's best receiver, Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons, wearing an Under Armour cleat reimagined by the sneaker customizer. Brady has his fifth. Then Belichick came over and gave him a hug.

The irony of the whole Deflategate incident is that the man who sanctioned Brady's four weeks on the sidelines, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell, may well have to present the Vince Lombardi Trophy to Brady on Sunday night if the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons.
