I am usually impressed by how good Vegas is on setting the odds.  I realize they are gauging the bettors, to balance the bets.  But they set the over/under total at 49 with NE a 4.5 favorite.  That predicts a 27-22 NE win.  The point total was 74!

Very entertaining!!

Consider that Philadelphia, a team that was just 7-9 last season (16-3 this season), was led by a second year coach and a backup quarterback.

Consider that Coach Doug Pederson was the head coach at Calvary Baptist Academy just 10 years ago, and quarterback Nick Foles almost quit football in 2016 after being released by the Rams after they signed Jared Goff.

Consider that two of the Eagles' touchdowns could have been overturned on replay, but were not.  (I agreed with the booth on both, but the one in the back of the end zone would probably have been declared a "no-catch" upon review if it had been called incomplete initially).

Consider that Coach Pederson twice decided to "go for it" on fourth down...in a Super Bowl!  And the Eagles were successful on both....one to keep a scoring drive alive, and one that resulted in a touchdown.

Consider that both quarterbacks were thrown passes during the game.  Brady's attempted catch was off his fingertips and hit the ground; and Foles' catch was for what proved to be the winning touchdown....  Insane!

Did the kid who took the selfie with Justin Timberlake get his money's worth?

This kid?

Yeah, I'd say so!  Cool

Comedian and Philadelphia native, Kevin Hart, predicted the score would be 83-6 in favor of the Eagles....turns out he was a lot closer than Las Vegas!

I'm a fan of Kevin, but turns out his celebrity status in Philly didn't impress the Super Bowl security guards enough to allow him on the stage when the Lombardi Trophy was presented.  Later he dropped an F-bomb on the NFL Network before admitting to consuming "a few beverages" during the game.

I heard today that Tom Brady was the first QB to throw for over 500 yards, 3 touchdown, and no interceptions, and lose the game. Not the first Super Bowl QB, the first QB in any NFL game to do that. So, best losing game ever.
