The Greatest, Saddest Super Bowl Ever

Slate 

Sports are supposed to be zero sum. There are 32 NFL teams, and 31 of them--that's 97 percent, Falcons fans--finish each year without the pleasure of sticking a big, fat trophy in Roger Goodell's face. The Patriots, who've won five Super Bowls in the past 15 years, are not normal. The success of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and their rotating cast of skill-position players and pass rushers and defensive backs is a crazy outlier. New England's victory on Sunday night--one in which they overcame a 25-point deficit; the largest previous Super Bowl comeback was 10 points--was an outlier among outliers.
