Tom Brady threw six touchdown passes, including five in the first half, to lead the New England Patriots to a 49-28 victory over the now 0-7 Miami Dolphins. With the win, New England moved to 7-0 and was awarded this year’s Super Bowl by Commissioner Roger Goddell.
“Frankly, by defeating winless Miami, one-win New York and two-win Buffalo, there was no way that we could definitively say that New England was going to lose this year. With that said, we decided to cancel the rest of the season and simply award the New England Patriots with this year’s Super Bowl,” said Goddell from Miami yesterday.
The Super Bowl is the most heavily watched sporting event in the world and many wondered how Goddell could simply dismiss this year’s game. That’s when the Commissioner showed everyone why he is in the position he is.
“Instead of having New England against a team they will clearly beat, why not just have a split squad game?” said the Commissioner during the New England post-game press conference. “If they are truly the best team, why have anyone else even play the game?”
With yesterday’s win New England is now 7-0 with their opponents owning an impressive 17-28 record combined (11-27 without the Dallas win). Quarterback Tom Brady is having an MVP season and many are attributing the Patriots’ success as a reaction to the backlash the Patriots received for getting caught cheating. No, not when Rodney Harrison admitted using HGH and received a four game ban this year. No, not when Vince Wolfork was fined $5,000 for a late hit against the Dallas Cowboys. It is for when Belichick was caught by his former Defensive Coordinator video taping signals of defensive coaches and was fined $500,000 by the league and costing the team their first round draft pick next year.
Just remember, cheaters never win…except in the NFL apparently.
