The New England Patriots are Super Bowl champions yet again, after a stunning late comeback to achieve a 34-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
However the Patriots locker room was filled with a general sense of unease and confusion as to how they won the game, which they assumed was through cheating – but how?
Brady reportedly assumed that Coach Bill Belichick had come up with some nefarious half-time scheme, like tainting the Falcons’ water bottles with a delayed-action toxin.
However Belichick had assumed it was Brady who came up with a last ditch illegal plot to turn the game on its head – perhaps by informing the Falcons that he had all their children taken hostage.
Some New England fans say they should relax as it might have been a good old-fashioned case of the troops rallying at the last minute, but that proved of little comfort to the unsettled team.
“Nah, don’t think so. We’re the Patriots.”
