I had the Falcons winning by 15+,and went to bed confident they would see it through.

I awoke to deep disappointment.

I watched from start to finish and after hearing all the hype about brady for the first 35 minutes he looked completely useless.  Not helped by his runners who also couldnt of caught a cold swimming naked in the arctic.

Apart from white who had a great game from start to finish.

Then the last 10 minutes of the 3rd until the winning TD in overtime Brady was immense.

Falcons where very unlucky and if they had gone for the field goal when in range in the 3rd it would of killed the game off.

As for Edelmans catch........no words.

Still a lot of blokes at work don't rate NFL. I've given up trying to win them over.

I live in a Rugby League town,so I suppose I'm spitting into the wind.

What a game! What a comeback! Unbelievable that Brady dragged his team back into after going 25 points down. 
First half I didn't recognise the Patriots as the team that has played so well in the regular season and that was down to the brilliance of the Falcons - defence as well as their amazing attack. Pats couldn't catch a cold and they really missed Rob Gronowski.
Final quarter was like watching a different game and it was only when the Pats dispensed with the huddle and made the 4th and 3 that it looked like they had any kind of chance. That and Edelman's incredible catch were the key moments for me. Still in awe of Alex Mack playing the whole game with a broken leg.
One of the best Superbowls I've ever seen and I've been watching them for the best part of 50 years. Superb.

i recorded it so will watch the whole second half tonight, still can't believe the Patriots did it, they looked dead and buried at 21-3 at half time

I awoke this morning to hear it being widely described as "one of, if not THE best Superbowl(s) ever."

I've watched some proper stinkers over the last 33 years, so imagine my delight at hearing that after missing it for the first time since 1984.....

Bollocks....

What an unbelievable match. Planned to go to bed at half time and watch the rest tomorrow.I only ended up staying up because I was pissed and enjoying a bottle of Polish Buffalo Bison vodka. Glad I didn't now. (Although I felt bloody dreadful this morning). Is it just me or does anyone else feel it was a bit unfair on the Falcons that they didn't get a chance to try and score a touchdown of their own in overtime. The Patriots got possession on the toss of a coin only so surely The Falcons should have had one drive to see if they could score a touchdown.

I did but them's the rules. I even thought the winning touchdown was questionable as his knee looked down before he crossed the line. That said, the Pats had some bad decisions earlier in the game and at a time when everything was going wrong for them. Falcons understandably frustrated and losing a 25 point lead in the most important game of their lives will live with them forever.
Definitely some luck in the Pats win but I guess if you've been totally demolished and are trailing by 25 in the third with no sign of improvement you'll need a fair bit of luck to pull a result like this out of the bag.

just seen that the San Diego Chargers are moving to LA, bit of a shame as the chargers were my second team back when i first started watching American Football in the 80's. Can LA cope with having 2 teams?

Didn't they have two teams before - the Raiders and the Rams.

Also won't it only be for a short while anyway as the Raiders are going to Vegas?

The Raiders are in Oakland now,didn't know they were planning a move to Las Vegas,just read it's in doubt. The Rams went back to LA last season from St Loius.

Imagine if they tried all these moves here with our football teams? There was a big enough fuss when the whole Wimbledon and MK Dons happened
