Did they have any trouble getting back through "The Wall", or did they just breeze through like everyone else does?

I am shocked that they won. There is something this town isn't known for.

So they fought to beat about the worst team or maybe is the worst team in the league. Not something I would be too proud of. I watched the first quarter only and that was all I could take, it was not a Super Bowl bound team on the field. I saw a team making one cluster fuck mistake after another. I also saw an interception that was nothing but a 100% per luck event. I mean talk about being in the right spot at the right time, 8 inches either way and that fat slop wouldn't have got the ball or probably even seen it.

Fans everywhere last night got to see about the worst in the NFL that was somehow picked to go play in a foreign country to show off what the NFL is all about. Pathetic I tell you, completely pathetic.

^^^Agree. They have trouble running the ball but can't stop the other team from running it. Without Tyreek Hill their passing game is ordinary. They have not been looking like a playoff team, much less Super Bowl. And to think, just last year they could have been in the Super Bowl and even won it. Damn you, Dee Ford.
