Colts vs. Patriots Classic
They talked on the radio about how everyone in the dome figured it was over after the Patriots went up 21 to 3, but the feeling I got was that cooler heads knew there was still a lot of time left, and the crowd never gave up...
I haven't re-watched the game yet but I can tell you what I saw live was a Patriot with his foot out of the endzone before he leapt to catch a touchdown pass to make it 28-21. I can't believe that one wasn't overruled. Nevertheless the Colts overcame that to win 38-34. And it definitely wasn't over until Brady's interception.
Note: Don Banks of Sports Illustrated, who has covered NFL games for 17 years, called it the greatest NFL game he has covered. Also, Fort Wayne Observed has Tony Dungy's post game comment about playing the Super Bowl in Fort Wayne here. Looks like the Bears are next after felling the Chiefs, the Ravens, and the Pats.
