So the Patriots lose the big one. Miami's record is safe as they won the Superbowl, despite playing 2 less regular season games. The two Mannings have beaten the Patriots when it counted the last two years. The world is back in balance. Now I also expect the gloves to be off on the whole taping scandal. There is no reason now for the media not to pile on. In a way the Patriots may end up feeling like Bill Clinton does right now.
Oh yeah, Plaxico was right: they didn't score 17 points.
