The game was somewhat entertaining, and congrats to Eagles fans, but I sure hope it was an aberration. If I want to watch the game played like that on a consistent basis, I'll just buy Arena League tickets and see it there.

One punt in the entire game. One. Now I know nobody tunes in to watch the punters face off, but for cryin in the beer, there was basically zero defense played in that game. May as well have been an NBA All-Star game.

I don't like either team, which may explain things, as I'm sure if my guys won it would have been the greatest game ever played. Also, having recently celebrated another birthday that pushes me even further into curmudgeon land, I'm trying real hard to not sit on my porch and preach about how great football and everything else used to be. Still, one punt?

It was an exciting game. Not sure the Patriots played their best game. Too bad some of the fans had to riot over the win and destroy their own city. Imagine if the Eagles had lost. Would they have burned the city down to the ground? Unsettling to see how much rage exists that on an occasion to celebrate people had to resort to destroying other peoples' property. Go humans!!!!!

From what I read, it seems that there were a lot more arrests in the Boston area than in Philly.

Nick Foles was brilliant. Eagles have an outstanding defense but Brady is the best.

Too bad he is a whiny, crybaby. Never shakes hands when he loses. A real bee-otch ....

Many interesting and offbeat stats from the game. Here's one:

Only game in NFL history to be 22-12 at halftime.

One thing to remember, Jason Peters, Jordan Hicks, Darren Sproles, Caleb Sturgis, and, of course, Carson Wentz are all injured. And the Eagles still won. I was impressed. Underdogs through the entire playoffs.

I am a Philly fan from the Philly area, but I don't really pay much attention to anything but baseball. I didn't have a lot of hope for the playoffs but as I said, they impressed me.

The absolute beauty of this game was the aggressiveness/confidence in his team of Eagles Head Coach Doug Pederson. Going for it on 4th down near the end zone (resulting in that trick play for a TD) and then late in the 4th quarter going for it again on 4th down while still on their own side of the field was magnificently beautiful!!!! Virtually every single team in similar situations during the playoffs would have immediately opted for the FG attempt and then a punt, but not the Iggles. They knew what they needed to do to stand a chance against the Pats, and went for it. I am ridiculously impressed. That's why they pulled it out, a belief in their team.

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

I have been an Eagles season ticket holder since 1992. Even if they didn't win last night, this has been my absolute favorite Eagles team. They battled all year, lost KEY positions and leaders along the way, were discounted by everyone, and beat the GOAT last night.

The Belichick/Brady era is over, and the torch was passed last night to Pederson/Wentz.

Bank it.

I still have not seen a satisfactory explanation why Malcolm Butler was benched. This is a guy who played almost every snap this season. He wasn't hurt, he played special teams.
