The Patriots of New England are headed for their third straight Super Bowl, again thanks to the brilliance of Tom Brady. The NFL champion & # 39; five times guided the Patriots 75 yards after winning the toss of the coin overtime, and the landing of & # 39; two yard & # 39; Rex Burkhead removed New England in the past & # 39; Kansas City 37-31 for the AFC championship on Sunday evening.
The drive, in which New England had three third conversions, against exhausted defenders, was reminiscent of & # 39; when the Patriots won only Super Bowl in Atlanta to go to OT two years ago.
"Overtime, the road against a great team," said Brady. "They had no quit. We have not even done. We had our best football at the end. I do not know, man, I'm tired. That was hell & # 39; game."
New England benefited from two critical reviews & # 39; replay and made nine & # 39; Their Super Bowl with & # 39; Brady at quarterback and Bill Belichick as coach. "This is crazy," said Brady. "What a game."
Their expectation in Atlanta are the Los Angeles Rams, who won 26-23 in overtime in New Orleans for the NFC championship. Last Rams made the Super Bowl in 2002 when they were based in St. Louis, and flew to the Patriots.
Several times, the Patriots seemed to have won the game, only to see that Kansas City again & # 39; & # 39 back with; spectacular way. Brady, 41 years already the oldest quarterback who played f'Super Bowl, drove to New England 65 yards in 1: 24 by landing four & # 39; of Burkhead yards and 39 hours remaining in regulation. It was enough, though, to his much younger counterpart, Patrick Mahomes of & # 39; 23 years, to take the Chiefs 48 yards to target & # 39; 39 yard & # 39; Harrison Butker eight seconds left forcing overtime.
It was a sizzling offensive showing in the fourth & # 39; quarter after the defense was responsible for most of the way. Indeed, the Chiefs were depleted in the middle of starting for the first time all season. And they never saw the ball in overtime, which together with the two decisions & # 39; replay can come into force rules and NFL officials.
It does not matter to New England, which became the third franchise to reach three consecutive Super Bowl. And Belichick now has 30 win after the season, more than Bill Walsh and Don Shula together. What the Sewweb of coach duo duo also won five Super Bowl; Belichick draw for No6 weeks.
