Until the AFC East actually gets it's act together and offers the Pat's some competition, NE can pretty much count on being in the playoffs for years to come.

Line backer Von Miller won the SB MVP in SB 50. He got to Cam a lot and definitely deserved it. That was a Wade Phillips D and this years Rams D was also lead by Wade and they played well...just needed more from Rams offense.

It was a snooze fest, but it was at least close most of the game making it better than the blow out super bowls we had with the 49ers or the Cowboys vs Bills in the 80s & 90's where it was over in the 1st quarter.

Even Romo seemed less enthusiastic & was predicting less plays than normal. And even the post game seemed blah & uncharacteristic of recent past Super Bowls.

But ya, you know it was a boring game when the biggest topic after the game is whether Brady kissed Kraft on the lips or not. Laurel or Yanny?

Totally agree with Dan.

And I love how the football 'purists' see fit to personally insult those who found this game boring. So much for respecting the opinions of others. Those who found this game boring are no more wrong than those who found it to be an intriguing defensive game. At least those of us who thought it to be a snooze fest aren't judging the character of those who liked the game.

Super Bowl LIII was a complete disaster

This was a slog of a football game, a tractor pull turned punt-fest that featured – yes, excellent defensive play – but also a lot of offensive ineptitude on both sides.

Best part about this Superbowl.......I went to dinner just after the kickoff and got back late in the 3rd quarter......basically missed NOTHING!

It's like falling asleep during a baseball game, waking up 5 innings later only to see the score is the same. You caught a nap (or ate dinner), didn't suffer through more bad commercials and missed nothing!

Oh No Romo is the worst. He was bad enough as a QB, but even worse in the booth.

Simply put, the Patriots have been beating everybody. They're averaging something like 7.89 wins a season against non AFC East teams. So even if they were in a very tough division every year and were going .500, they'd still be winning 11 games every year.

Here are some more numbers for. In the last 18 years, the Patriots have won 78% of their games vs. the AFC South. 76% of their games vs. the AFC North. 66% of their games vs. the AFC West. 81% of their games vs. the NFC. Prior to this season, the Patriots had won their last 15 games vs. the AFC South.

Romo made the SB exciting. I really enjoyed listening to him. I would have fell asleep in 2nd quarter if Romo wasn't there.

Disagree completely. Romo wasn't great on the field, I'll give you that, but his calling in the booth is exemplary and he's great at knowing exactly how a play is going to go even before they line up.

I loved this game as it was a defensive battle. I'm getting a bit tired of everyone wanting basically no defense and high scoring, offensive excitement with massive amounts of "explosive" plays, (which basically means no defense). The game was well balanced, and there weren't too many questionable calls. Yeah, it was low scoring, but it meant that every score was more meaningful.

I'll have a hearty Mr. Burns chuckle if the Rams win.
No previous bad calls by refs could ever be more blatant than that one though. You can't justify that call by referencing any previous bad calls.
