The Patriots stole a Super Bowl victory as Russell Wilson with a minute and change left on the clock through an interception at the goal line on first down. The obvious question looms large, why not run the ball? Still amazing. Players were very professional on social media following such a heartbreaking loss.
Doug Baldwin tweeted the obvious...
