What a game!

Punt after Punt for both the Falcons and the Patriots left the 1st Quarter scoreless.

The Falcons then went on a 21-0 run and dug a 25-point hole for the Patriots to be ahead 28-3 in the 3rd. The Patriots answered with a Touchdown but missed the Field Goal (FG) kick to reach 9-28.

The Patriots went on a roll in the 4th and although they were unable to make it to the endzone, they got the score to 12-28, never quit and went after each play.

I think the turning point of the game was a rookie mistake by Falcons’ QB Matt Ryan and their coach not to run the ball when they were in FG range that led to a fumble and him getting sacked. They missed the chance of a 3-point cushion that would have sealed the deal for them. The Patriots already have the record for the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history versus the Seahawks, where Falcon’s Head Coach, Dan Quinn was on Seahaeks’ coaching staff and the Seahawks lost after they did not run the ball. Quinn clearly did not learn his lesson. So now the Patriots had a chance to tie the game with a Touchdown and run for 2 which they achieved.

Another highlight and defining moment was the Patriots’ Julian Edelman’s catch off a defender’s shoe. He had been double teamed by defenders all night and was surrounded by 3 defenders for that play and was finally able to make a spectacular catch. That definitely pumped up their esteem and deflated that of the Falcons.

Then of course, Tom Brady went on a roll. After underthrowing then overthrowing the ball all night, he finally got his mojo back after erasing a 25-point deficit. Which star QB wouldn’t?!  The game was now tied at 28-28 with 57s left in the final quarter after a 19-0 run.

Falcons failed to reach FG range and for the first time in Super Bowl history, the game would go into Overtime (OT).

Patriots had the option to choose first and won the coin toss. The current OT rules give both teams the opportunity to possess the ball at least once in OT unless the team that receives the OT kickoff scores a touchdown on its first possession.

So, if the team that received the OT kickoff, which would be the Patriots scored on its first possession, they would the winner.

Brady’s pass to James White created a 2 yard TD run in OT and just like that the Patriots won 34-28, the largest comeback in Super Bowl history.

James White scored 3 TDs and a 2-pointer. Tom Brady scored a record 466 yards, 2 TDs and got his 5th ring and Bill Belichick is now the 1st Coach with 5 Super Bowl Crowns.

Well done Patriots. Well done. A win well deserved. Congrats to Tom Brady, Belichick and the Patriots!

Falcons and Patriots Head to the Super Bowl!

The Falcons destroyed the Packers, beating them 44-21 to head to the Super Bowl.

The Packers failed to score in the first half due to a fumble followed by 2 interceptions. They also failed to convert huge opportunities to intercept when they were unable to recover a loose ball, mistimed a jump in the end zone and dropped the ball in the end zone, which was followed with a touchdown by the Falcons, ending the 1st half 24-0.

Defense was poor for the Packers and has been throughout the Playoffs. The players had butterfingers and even though Rodgers had more rushing yards than his teammates, he couldn’t win it by himself.

The Patriots rolled over the Steelers as expected with a win of 36-17. They are heading to the Super Bowl for a record 9th time.

Will the Vegas Pro prediction of the Falcons winning it all come through? Suga thinks it is possible. They got young, fresh legs.

In other Sports news, Serena Williams moves on to the Quarterfinals of the Australian Open and Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Cavaliers last Saturday night in Cleveland in OT 118- 115!

LeBron James failed to make the game-winning shot that caused the game to go into OT, he missed more crucial clutch shots and created a turnover. Kevin Love missed his shots as well, including the very last possession when the Spurs defense slipped up and he was left wide open for the 3-point shot. Kyrie Irving made the usual clutch shots in OT but it wasn’t enough.

The Cavs didn’t even play the full Spurs team. The Spurs are currently without Pao Gasol, who is out for 4 to 8 weeks and Tony Parker, who has an injured foot. So the game belonged to Kawhi Leonard who scored a Career high 41 points. It was his 1st game over 40 points.

Stay tuned. Sports season is on a high until June!

Packers sent the Cowboys Packing!

The NFL Playoffs kicked off into high gear over the weekend. Suga was 3/3 with predictions and left the Steelers-Chiefs game to go either way.

The Patriots destroyed the Texans 34-16 as expected.

The Falcons defeated a depleted Seahawks team 36-20.

The Steelers upset the Chiefs with a close game ending 18-16.

The game of the weekend undoubtedly went to the Packers and the Cowboys!

The Packers led the entire game building up to a 15-point lead to start the 4th that stretched to an 18-point lead. Cowboys star QB Tony Romo has been out with a back injury, leaving rookie QB Dak Prescott to step up his game. That he did. He was impressive, increasing the pace and helped his team get right back into the game erasing an 18-point deficit. I think his biggest moment was taking matters into his own hands and running the ball to a touchdown.

The game was tied 31-31 with 35s left! But the ball was in the Hail Mary King’s hands, Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers. He didn’t throw a Hail Mary this time but you can never count him out. He created a clutch opportunity throwing the ball 35 yards for a reception by Jared Cook who was sliding out of bounds, ultimately putting them in Field Goal range.

Packers’ experienced Kicker, Mason Crosby was faced with the pressure of kicking a 51-yard FG. The Cowboys called a time out as he kicked it successfully so it did not count and he had to retake the kick. The wait was nail-biting, but Crosby did it! He kicked the game winning 51-yard FG and helped send his team to the NFC Championships upsetting the #1 seed NFC Cowboys team.

The AFC and NFC Championships will be Sunday, February 22. Patriots vs. Steelers and Packers vs. Falcons.

Stay tuned.

Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX!

What a game! Patriots sealed the Super Bowl win last night with an interception on own goal line in the final minute to beat the Seahawks 28-24. Everyone was expecting the Seahawks to run the ball so we could see ‘Beast mode’ but sadly for them, they made the wrong call.

Patriots’ Tom Brady now ties Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana for most Super Bowl wins by a starting QB with 4. Congrats to Tom and the Patriots.

Congrats to the Seahawks and Patriots who head to Super Bowl 49!

The New England Patriots slaughtered the Indianapolis Colts, 45-7 to win the AFC Championship and face NFC Champs and Super Bowl 48 Defending Champs, Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 49 on February 1. The Seahawks came from a 16-0 deficit with the Green Bay Packers to win in overtime 28-22, definitely the game of the day. The Seahawks got pretty beaten up, Sherman with an elbow injury scheduled for an MRI today and others. Can the Seahawks still win 2 consecutive Super Bowls? It will be a tough one. May the Best Team win!

Are you ready for NFL Sunday?! Who will head to the Super Bowl?

If Defending Champs, Seahawks go all the way, they will be breaking through some stats for sure! The Seahawks look hungry and it will definitely be hard for the Packers to beat them at home, even worse with an injured QB Aaron Rodgers. He has a strained calf but found a way around running to beat the Cowboys, but can he be that good against the Seahawks’ huge defense? I doubt it. The Colts-Patriots game is a toss up even though the Patriots will be at home. SuGa thinks it will be a Seahawks-Colts final. Stay tuned to SuGa’s Facebook page for updates.
