It made for a disappointing end - I don't think because the Pats were the better team. But everyone knew how gassed the Falcons defense was at that point. The coin toss decided the game.

I get it that most of the viewers wanted the Pats to lose. Nobody outside of Pats nation wanted to see the Pats hoist another trophy and Brady get the MVP because its just vindication that they are a good team lead by the GOAT at QB. It's what makes me enjoy that fact that all the haters think they are cheaters. Goodell mentions the word transparency all the time. Well there you have it..........transparency.
