INDIANAPOLIS -- The Pats were sloppy in the first half, but Tom Brady came on strong late, leading them to a 96-yard touchdown drive. He picked up right where he left off in the second half, completing his first five passes of the Patriots first drive.

But he didn't just lead the Pats to another touchdown (and a 17-9 lead), he also broke Joe Montana's Super Bowl-record of 13-straight completions. With 13:22 remaining in the third quarter, Brady hit Wes Welker for a short pass to the left that went for five yards, giving him 14 consecutive completions and breaking the Montana record.

Brady clearly wasn't satisfied, though, and he hit his next two passes, including a 12-yard touchdown to Aaron Hernandez. Brady was so spectacular, in fact, that he even managed to get Chad Ochocinco involved.

Brady breaks Montana's SB completion record

dink and dunk, dink and dunk. one to te, one to rb, then to other te. There is no defense even allowed to be played in the nfl and this is supposed to be impressive? As others have also said, no passes that are not safe passes are ever thrown by pats. Very smart, gets to sb and a lot of wins. But dont drool over a completion mark. I was more impressed with Eli opening up 9 for 9. Giants won, pats have not won since spygate. People talking about how lucky the giants are forgot how lucky the pats were to even get to sb years past (tuck rule ring a bell) and about how they barely won sb WHEN THEY KNOW THE OTHER TEAMS PLAYS!!!!!! Great franchise, qb, and coach but not worth all the love for sure.

Brady breaks Montana's SB completion record

I agree with Laker, seemed like the refs were doing all they could to give the game to the Pats.  That holding call was a total fabrication.

Brady breaks Montana's SB completion record

Brady also threw a horrible pass that everyone is calling a Wes Welker drop. It would have been a TD if Brady threw a good pass.. He forced Welker to break stride and reach behind for the pass. Is Tom Terrific still untouchable by the media?

Brady breaks Montana's SB completion record

The Giants were robbed by two non-calls of defensive pass interference in the second and fourth quarters and that questionable holding call that cost the champs a first down in the first half.  Thank St Peter that those bad calls did not play roles in the outcome of the game.  One would think the officials were trying to give the Patriots the game.
The Patriots are a great organization, but had they won, their fans would be absolutely insufferable.  The franchise deserves honors for a fantastic season and I feel bad for the team after losing a game like this.  However, I could not be more happy than to watch their classless fans watch their team go down in defeat.  Those same folks became really obnoxious once the Pats went up 17-9 after the first possession in the second half.

Once again their arrogance suffered the same fate as those vampires in the first Audi commercial.  Poof!

Congratulations to the Giants.  Their eight NFL championship and their fourth Super Bowl victory.

Brady breaks Montana's SB completion record

Not hard to break a record like this when you never attempt a pass of more than 7 yards. Dink-dunk, the only long passes he tried were poorly thrown and one picked off. Brady isn't so great when he actually has to get the team to the endzone rather than get them to the 40 and have his kicker bail him out.

Welker's Dropped Pass

The dropped pass by Welker in the 4th quarter was huge.  If he makes that catch, the Pats run another 2 - 3 min off the clock, go up at least another 3pts if not two scores.  I was shocked to see the sure-handed receiver miss such a pass.  Great game, though. 

Ironic how the incredible catch by Manningham possibly saved the day for the Giants the same way that Tyree's catch off the helmet did a few years ago. 

Also surprised to see Brady underthrow the wide open Gronkowski on the interception.  Uncharachteristic (even though a similar thing happened against the Ravens in the AFC Championship).

Brady breaks Montana's SB completion record

No more of this GOAT talk for Tom Brady.  The guy needed ref help (5 major non-calls) to be in the game and the Patriots STILL lost. He's 0-2 in superbowls now with 3 astericks.  But I'm sure next year the Tom Panties 'Duck Sick' Fest will back in full force and swing.

Seriously though, did anyone else get nauseous when Chris Collinsworth went over that whole spiel on how Tom wanted to kiss Kraft and win a superbowl for him because his wife died this year?  JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZ
ZZ.....I feel SOOOOOO sorry for Kraft.  I mean, his wife lived a really rough life....*puke*

Yes Tom Brady is so fantastic that he threw the INT that killed the Patriots momentum and then lost the game, for his second SB loss in a row, sandwiching multiple 1 and done playoff appearances.
