The Pats are on to the Super Bowl!!! :)
It's the 9th time in franchise history and the 7th under Brady/Belichick. It was a GREAT game!
The first half was a bit tight, but the Steelers couldn't punch the ball into the endzone. The Pats weren't flawless but they had a comfortable lead by halftime and never looked back. Chris Hogan was incredible and so was Julian Edelman in the receiving corps. The O-line did its job. Dion Lewis scampered around and LeGarrette Blount bulled his way forward, carrying half the Steelers' DBs with him! Kicker Gostkowski did miss an extra point (after a steady second half of the season) so that's a tad worrisome, but hopefully he won't do so again in the Super Bowl. Otherwise he was right on the money.
Tom was fantastic. He was sharp and shining, though he will hear about his fumble on a quarterback sneak. Luckily he retained possession of the ball! Tsk, tsk, Tommy!
It became blow-out territory by the second half and was a game in which Pats fans didn't have to hold their breath 'til the last second! :)
We're on to Atlanta (in Houston)! The Falcons crushed the Packers in their Championship Game, and it's gonna be tough. Atlanta has a stout defense and great offense, but bring it on! Tom and the Patriots are going for Ring No. 5!
Oh, Marty Bennett! Dancing with the cheerleaders after the game. Sign this guy up! :)
Gillette Stadium rang with cheers of "Brady, Brady, Brady!" and "Where's Roger?" as the Commish once again showed his cowardice by not showing up.
We are enjoying this run for we shall not see its like again.
