Schon wieder Die New England Patriots stehen im Super Bowl. Zum insgesamt zehnten Mal. Was viele als Langeweile abtun, ist einfach. Die Patriots-Defensive war teilweise trotz eines abgefangenen Passes von Nick Foles ein wenig überfordert vom variablen Angriff Philadelphias. Patriots zittern um Superstar Tom Brady. Es war ein Offensiv-Spektakel und ein packendes Duell: Wie heisst der Pokal, den die Sieger des Super Bowls erhalten? Brown winkt Kaderplatz ran. Sie haben die zweitwenigsten Yards in der Post-Season und die wenigsten Yards in der Regular Season gegen gegnerische Runningbacks erlaubt. Beide Teams pulverisierten die bisherige Offensiv-Bestmarke und kamen gemeinsam auf Yards. Brady oder Foles, wer gewinnt den Da soll angeblich jemand mit seinem Auto auf der falschen Seite geparkt haben!!!! Auch im vierten Viertel geht das Offensiv-Spektakel munter weiter. Die Patriots konnten in diesem Spiel dreimal einen Ball des Quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger abfangen, was ihnen zum Das Spiel in voller Länge.
Patriots Eagles VideoMix - Eagles vs. Patriots Highlights
There were actual debates about whether he would ever lose one. Brady won his first 10 playoff starts. A look at the Win Probability graph from Pro-Football-Reference makes it clear this was by far the easiest win of the Patriots dynasty.
The biggest drama in this game involved the Eagles and not necessarily in great ways. Terrell Owens, who broke his leg in the middle of the season, came back for the Super Bowl and -- in a move that more Hall of Fame voters should remember -- caught nine passes for yards on a busted pole.
Donovan McNabb might or might not have thrown up -- he denies it but we all saw it happen and yet no video footage exists -- and the Eagles definitely puked on their own shoes in metaphorical fashion, botching their clock management late and never giving themselves a real shot to pull off what the Rams did a few years earlier.
The Eagles trailed at the two-minute warning but had the ball, because they had gotten it back with 5: Unfortunately they needed a play, 3-minute, second drive to score a touchdown, leaving them little time left for another scoring drive.
After using their timeouts and forcing a Pats punt, the Eagles got the ball back at their own 4-yard line with 46 seconds left. McNabb would throw a pick to end the game and give the Pats their third Super Bowl in four years.
Basically the same guy. Losing made the Patriots angry, so they decided to uncork arguably the greatest offensive season of all time in They destroyed every team in their path, going in the regular season and actually inspiring columns about whether they were bad sports for running up the score on everyone.
Yada, yada, yada, the Patriots made it back to the Super Bowl, morphed into the NFL's Yankees, the ultimate villain after spending half a decade as America's underdog who kept winning in a gritty fashion, and were And the Giants provided the first formula for beating the Pats: Get pressure on Brady by only bringing four guys, keep things close and come away with an impossible helmet grab from an obscure receiver late in the game to keep the drive alive before throwing a touchdown to your star wideout who would eventually spend time in prison for shooting himself in the leg.
Eli Manning escaping from pressure multiple times before putting what was basically a Hail Mary up into the air.
You'll see this clip times over the next two weeks because the Pats are back in the Super Bowl. But just know this: The Giants upending the Pats was one of the most dramatic and stunning games you will ever see.
The Pats were one minute from perfection and instead had to spend the offseason asking "How? Actually they had to spend longer than that, because in Week 1 the next season, Brady tore his ACL against the Chiefs.
The next season featured the unleashing of Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, both in their second season. Coupling the two tight ends with Welker 1, yards made the Pats unstoppable on offense, again, but in a different way.
And again, they found themselves against the Giants in the Super Bowl, this time in Indianapolis. Revenge was on their mind, but Tom Coughlin and Eli had a different idea about how things should go.
The Pats were only -3 this time; Vegas learned its lesson from But the over The Giants had a similar team, with tons of talent on the defensive line, and they put pressure on Brady throughout the game.
He would play, mostly as a decoy and the Pats offense once again struggled. The Giants jumped out to a lead first score safety, prop bet cashes huge!
A third-quarter Hernandez touchdown -- the Pats scored with eight seconds left in the second quarter and with 11 minutes left in the third quarter because they always do that -- gave the Pats a lead and, finally, an answer to their "long" Super Bowl drought.
The Giants tacked on two Lawrence Tynes field goals in the third quarter, cutting the lead to The Pats had Eli and Co.
Cue the Mario Manningham footage. This set up a touchdown by Ahmad Bradshaw -- the Pats let him score, but he shouldn't have scored but it worked out OK -- to give the Giants the lead.
One, Bill Belichick challenged the Manningham catch, and who can blame him. I was in the stadium near the end zone where Manning threw the ball from and I was sure it was incomplete.
But it did cost the Patriots a timeout. Two, before the play, Brady couldn't find Wes Welker on a second-and with four minutes left that would have sealed the game.
Welker was wide open and got blamed for the drop by Gisele but Brady sort of missed him if we're being fair.
And three, the Patriots secretly almost won the game on a Hail Mary. Talk about changing history -- Gronk was on the field trying to haul in a midfield bomb from Brady and it nearly happened.
There were two Pats players who got a look at the Hail Mary. It would have been the greatest ending to a Super Bowl we had ever seen, and instead was a second time in just a few years the Giants took down New England.
Coughlin's reputation for being a Belichick Beater blossomed and the questions about whether the Patriots would ever win another Super Bowl see: And here's where this gets really interesting, because the narrative could be VERY different right now.
One Malcolm Butler interception later and the Patriots were on top of the world again. Just last year I ranked this the greatest Super Bowl ever played.
I think that argument holds up. The Seahawks were coming off a Super Bowl victory the year before against the Broncos and were set to kick off their own dynasty with that dominant defense and Wilson at quarterback.
They got their own version of the Tyree-Manningham catch before that interception, thanks to Jermaine Kearse reeling in this bananas catch:.
No one talks about this catch at all because of how the game ended. No one mentions how the Seahawks stymied the Patriots early -- the game was scoreless in the first quarter.
A second-quarter Brandon LaFell touchdown from Brady started the scoring, with Lynch answering seven minutes later. I'm pretty sure Wilson didn't complete his first pass until the second quarter either.
But he made an unbelievable completion late in the first half, throwing a touchdown to Chris Matthews with two seconds left in the half after New England got a touchdown with 30 seconds left.
The Seahawks took a lead in the third quarter; once again the Pats were trailing late and once again Brady had to work some magic.
He did that, throwing a pair of scrappy short white guy TDs one to Playoff Danny Amendola , one to Julian Edelman in the final eight minutes of the game.
Seattle was going to answer and win the game. And then they passed the ball. In a game that was a pick 'em, it had all the drama you could ever ask for in a Super Bowl.
And, yet, New England saved the most drama for last. Or most recent anyway, with their Super Bowl LI win over the Falcons going down in almost impossible fashion.
It set up to be a snoozer of a game, with the Falcons stomping the Pats. Once again, no points were scored in the first quarter as the two teams felt each other out.
Once again, the second quarter went bonkers. The Falcons got a Devonta Freeman touchdown run to take a lead, followed it up with a Austin Hooper touchdown catch to push the lead to and then Robert Alford had a pick-six of Brady to make it You couldn't feel your face in that stadium.
The Patriots were being stomped in a Super Bowl?? The Pats got a field goal before the half because the Pats always get a field goal before the half, but Tevin Coleman scored to make it -- you might have seen that score before -- with less than nine minutes left in the third quarter.
The game was over and everyone was writing their "Dan Quinn gets revenge for Seattle by building Baby Seahawks in Atlanta" columns.
The Falcons had summoned an incredible performance to dominate the Patriots on both sides of the ball and MVP Matt Ryan was about to claim the franchise's first Super Bowl.
A third-quarter score to James White cut the lead to and gave us the "all right, if [X, X and X] happen, maybe this is a game" thought.
A Pats field goal made it a two-score game and a Dont'a Hightower strip sack of Ryan shook everything up. The Pats would follow that five plays later with a Danny Amendola touchdown catch, followed by a White two-point conversion, to make it How did we get here???
Suddenly the Falcons couldn't breath. They still had the best offense in football, they still had the play-makers and they still had an eight-point lead.
Get some first downs and it would be a tough situation. Get a field goal and the game would be over. Freeman picked up 39 yards on a pass from Ryan that opened up the lungs a bit.
The Eagles defense once again forced New England to punt, and got the ball back at their own yard line. Aided by a pair of completions from McNabb to wide receiver Todd Pinkston for gains of 17 and 40 yards, the Eagles drove 81 yards in nine plays and scored on McNabb's six-yard touchdown pass to Tight End LJ Smith, taking a 7—0 lead with 9: It was the first time New England trailed during the entire postseason.
On their ensuing drive, the Patriots moved the ball to the Eagles four-yard line, mainly on plays by running back Corey Dillon , who caught two screen passes for 29 yards and rushed for But quarterback Tom Brady fumbled the ball on a fake handoff Play-action pass and Philadelphia defender Darwin Walker recovered it.
However, the Eagles could not take advantage of the turnover and had to punt after 3 plays. Eagles punter Dirk Johnson 's punt went just 29 yards, giving the Patriots the ball at Philadelphia's yard line.
The Patriots then drove 37 yards to score on Brady's 4-yard pass to receiver David Givens with 1: It was only the second halftime tie in Super Bowl history and the first time both of the game's first two quarters ended tied.
On the opening drive of the second half, Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch caught 4 passes for 71 yards on a drive that ended with Brady's 2-yard touchdown pass to Vrabel, who lined up at the tight end spot on the play.
The Eagles later tied the game with 3: For the first time in Super Bowl history, the game was tied going into the fourth quarter.
Early in the final period, the Patriots put together a 9-play, yard scoring drive that was keyed by 3 plays from running back Kevin Faulk , who caught 2 passes for 27 combined yards and rushed once for Dillon capped off the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run to give the Patriots a 21—14 lead.
Then after forcing another Eagles punt, Branch made a spectacular catch, taking the ball out of the hands of cornerback Sheldon Brown.
The 19 yard gain, and a roughing-the-passer penalty on Philadelphia defensive lineman Corey Simon on the same play, set up kicker Adam Vinatieri 's yard field goal with 8: In all three Patriots' Super Bowl wins in the decade, they held a double digit lead in the 4th quarter.
The Eagles responded with a long McNabb completion to Owens. However, after reaching the New England yard line, McNabb fired a pass over the head of Dorsey Levens , where Tedy Bruschi was waiting to intercept it at the Patriots yard line.
At this point, there was only 7: The Eagles did force New England to punt, and got the ball back at their own yard line, but with 5: The Eagles then drove 79 yards in 13 plays, however they used a full huddle for the entire drive.
McNabb's yard touchdown pass to receiver Greg Lewis cut the deficit to Because the Eagles used a full huddle, the drive consumed 3: Because of this, many sportswriters later criticized the Eagles for not immediately going to a no-huddle offense at the start of the possession.
Anecdotal reports later came out alleging that McNabb was suffering from dry-heaves, and teammates Jon Ritchie  and Lito Sheppard  have gone on record years later that McNabb was suffering from dry-heaves or vomiting, though no video evidence exists and the stories have not been confirmed.
Hank Fraley said in an interview the day after the game that McNabb was "almost puking" due to two large hits from Tedy Bruschi and Jarvis Green on back-to-back plays.
The Eagles failed to recover their ensuing onside kick attempt, with Christian Fauria catching the ball cleanly and sliding down to seal possession for New England.
The Patriots then played it safe by running the ball 3 times and forcing Philadelphia to use all of its timeouts.
New England punter Josh Miller then pinned the Eagles back at their own 4-yard line with just 46 seconds left in the game. Philadelphia then tried one last desperate drive to win or tie the game.
But on first down, McNabb was pressured into making a rushed pass to Westbrook at the line of scrimmage. Instead of dropping the pass to stop the clock, Westbrook made the mistake of catching the ball and was immediately tackled for no gain, keeping the clock running and forcing the Eagles to run back to the line of scrimmage for their next play with no huddle.
On second down, McNabb threw an incomplete pass intended for Owens. Finally on third down, McNabb threw a pass that deflected off of the outstretched fingertips of Smith and into the arms of Harrison for an interception with nine seconds left.
Tom Brady took a knee to run out the clock, clinching the 3rd Super Bowl title in 4 years for the Patriots, and in the eyes of many establishing themselves as a dynasty.
McNabb completed 30 out of 51 passes for yards and 3 touchdowns, but threw 3 interceptions and was sacked four times.
Pinkston caught 4 passes for 82 yards, while Owens was the Eagles' top receiver with 9 catches for yards, however neither of them scored a touchdown.
Brady completed 23 out of 33 passes for yards and 2 touchdowns. Dillon was the top rusher of the game with 75 yards and a touchdown, and had 3 catches for 31 yards.
Running back Kevin Faulk contributed 38 rushing yards and 27 receiving yards. Coincidentally, all three would later be traded to the Seattle Seahawks: Ross in , Rice in and Branch in Branch also became the third offensive player ever to win Super Bowl MVP honors without scoring a touchdown or throwing a touchdown pass.
Branch and Terrell Owens each had yards receiving, marking the third time in Super Bowl history, one player from each team had over yards in a Super Bowl.
Branch also became the fourth player to have at least yards receiving in back-to-back Super Bowls, joining John Stallworth , Jerry Rice and Antonio Freeman.
Also, Mike Vrabel and David Givens became just the 14th and 15th players to score a touchdown in consecutive Super Bowls. Vrabel is the most surprising person on this list because he is a linebacker and he scored his on offense.
They also became just the 7th and 8th players to catch a touchdown in back-to-back Super Bowls. Brady also became the fourth quarterback to throw a touchdown pass in three different Super Bowls.
This marked the first time since — in the San Francisco Bay Area that the same market has had 2 Super Bowl and World Series winners in 12 months.
The latest Super Bowl win for the Patriots makes it ten titles among the four Boston teams 5 by the Patriots, 3 by the Red Sox, and one each by the Celtics and Bruins since For the Eagles, with the loss, the city of Philadelphia would not see its first championship since the 76ers swept the NBA Finals until the next time their city's teams played for a championship, when the Phillies won the World Series.
This is the last time that a team has won back-to-back Super Bowls, with the Patriots losing their second playoff game a year later and then, for the next eight years, every team either losing their first playoff game or missing them altogether.
The streak was broken in when the Seahawks defeated the Panthers and ultimately advanced to the Super Bowl, only to lose to a Patriots goal line stand.
The next year, the Patriots, having faltered down the stretch, entered those playoffs as the second seed behind the Broncos , who then defeated New England in the AFC Title Game that year en route to a title of their own in Super Bowl One ad that drew the ire of many—including the NFL—was for the internet domain provider Go Daddy , which tweaked the controversial halftime of the previous year's game with a mock censorship hearing featuring a comely woman, Nikki Cappelli played by WWE Wrestler Candice Michelle , having a "wardrobe malfunction".
Fox pulled the second airing of the ad, scheduled for the two-minute warning of the fourth quarter, along with a five-second plug, and it was replaced with a promo for The Simpsons.
The Scottsdale, Arizona -based World Wide Web domain registration company got a refund on the second ad. Another popular ad was made by the NFL.
It featured players who were not in the Super Bowl, headlined by Pittsburgh Steelers rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger being at a beach resort, depressed he did not make it in.
Joe Montana comforted Roethlisberger, and soon both Montana and Roethlisberger joined many other players in different locations in an off-key yet rousing edition of "Tomorrow" from the musical Annie.
The commercial ended with the tagline: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Bill Belichick Head coach: Coast Guard Academy , and U.
