Bit of a freak ending. Shouldn't beat himself up though.
No but some observers have criticised him for hitting the upright too often as if it was intentional rather than bad luck.

Go Vikings!cheers

Chiefs v Colts in the Divisional tonight. Hoping Mahomes does the business but this is going to be a tough one.

The Championship games are all decided now and its seeds 1 vs 2 in both conferences.

The Eagles had a great start last night again the Saints but faded badly and lost 20-14 whereas the Patriots battered the Chargers in the first half before easing off.

The Chiefs won fairly easily against the Colts and the Rams beat the Cowboys.

Patriots will go to Arrowhead to play the Chiefs and the Rams will go to the Saints. Both going to be close games i reckon but still think it will be a Chiefs vs Saints Superbowl.

Pats, Rams, Chiefs and Saints - no shock there really.
Much as I rate Brady, I'm kinda hoping the Chiefs turn them over this year as they got brownie points for cutting the woman hater mid-season. Brave move would be the pun.

Honestly think no team is favourite. Four good teams on their day and this will all be about how they perform on the day. Looking forward to it.

Well there we have it. Commiserations to the Saints who I thought were hard done by but you can't blame the Rams for taking advantage of an absolutely appalling decision. Presumably the powers that be will change the rules, but it must be gutting for the Saints. As for the Chiefs, they were so close and on the wrong end of a few very close calls but no complaints. And after all it was that man Brady again doing the business.
Got to go with big Tom to take it in the SB but I'm loving what Sean McVay is doing and it could yet be a fairytale ending to what has been an incredible season for him. Don't really mind either way as long as it's a good game. Bring it on!

How they missed that penalty for the Saints is beyond me, never seen a clearer pass interference penalty! They could have then run down the clock and kicked a field goal with a few seconds left and won the game.
I'm hoping the Rams will win the Superbowl but looking at Brady, Kronk, Edelmen and Michel i think the Patriots will be hard to beat.

Defensive war of attrition. 3 - 0 at half time and a contender for the lowest scoring SB of all time (14 - 7 currently) These defences surely can't keep this up?

Looks like Chung broke his arm.

Goodness knows how, but after 8 punts in a row and being battered all through the game, the Rams are level. 3 - 3 as the third draws to a close. It's a war.

Unbelievable. 4th quarter and still 3-3. Either team could nick it now. Defences still totally dominant, but they must be getting knackered so somebody is going to crack.
First time in SB history that neither team has scored a TD in the first 3 quarters.

Finally, Michel gets it over the line. 10 - 3 with 8 minutes left and another 8 points needed to avoid this being the lowest scoring SB of all time.

Wow. 13 - 3 it finishes. 
As a game, it was probably the best defensive battle I've seen in 40 years of watching the SB and the reason it was the lowest scoring game in history. An absolute war and totally not was expected.
Records for Brady, for Hekker with the longest punt in history.
Time for bed.

The longest punt got a really good forward roll.  Bookies actually had the Rams as one-point favorites until the money started rolling in for the Pats.

Yup it was like a golf drive that pitched on a downslope and shot forward - a further 27 yards I believe - which was gutting for the Pats as they'd pinned the Rams back yet again and had been stopped yet again despite dominating possession and yardage.
Fair play to the Rams outstanding defence but their attack contributed next to nothing. Poor Goff was pressurised into submission. It was almost as if Bellichick had his playbook in his pocket and ultimately that was the difference between the two teams.

Belichick was actually named as coach of the NY Jets and held that job for one day before quitting and joining the Patriots.  In winning six Superbowls, he is the coach of perhaps the most hated team in sports... a team accused of cheating to win... including having the plays of opposing teams (they were fined for videotaping the opposition), and in the most flagrant act, deflating the footballs for Brady.  One opposing coach called him Belicheat! Nevertheless, the Pats have achieved cult like status as winners and Brady becoming the best QB of all-time.

They are the Man United of American football, the team that everyone loves to hate. As an impartial observer over the years I've had no problem with the Bellichick era of the Pats though, as at one stage they were serial losers who came good. And I do think Bellichick is a brilliant coach as he showed yet again last night, outthinking and outmanoevering McVay - who I also like.
Pretty sure Brady is already the best QB of all time  although not my favourite having got into the game in the 70s when Staubach was the business followed by Montana, Elway and Marino.
I even liked a QB called Ken Anderson!
But Brady is undoubtedly excellent. He doesn't have the arm or mobility of others I like, but his "footballing brain", decision-making and accuracy are beyond compare. As is his record.

Can't disagree with any of that.  Elway had the cannon... but Brady is the best at reading defenses.  Though I wish Belichick had stayed with the Jets!  Truly awful franchises in NY for the past few years... Jets, Mets, Knicks, Rangers, etc.

Needless to say the Americans didn't like it as there wasn't a TD-fest and the Pats won. Some folk don't see the pleasure in great defensive performances and both defences were magnificent throughout until the Rams visibly tired at the end having got no respite due to their attacking line up failing time after time.
Anyhoo that's it for another season. Roll on the next one.

He'll do well, but unlike Jay Ajayi he hasn't played college football so it will be a longer learning curve. He has the right attributes and mentality, but he'll have to stay injury free because the competition is brutal - only two years after winning the SB Ajayi is now a free agent just because he tore his ACL at the end of last year. In football and rugby most teams would keep top players whilst they take a year out to recover, but in the NFL it seems they just get cut.

Ajayi is a free agent? Come on Steelers sign him up! Conner and Ajayi at RB would be great.

Can't believe Brown has signed for the Raiders, must be paying him very well as they are a poor team. Going to be a tough season for the Steelers with Bell going as well.

My turncoat Son has now ditched the Giants to follow his favourite player OBJ and is a Browns fan  Very Happy

Doesn't seem to be much loyalty in the NFL.
You have teams moving from one city to another.
Imagine the Wanderers moving down to Birmingham. It's ridiculous. Bloody Yanks.
