Early edition of Boston Globe painted Patriots as Super Bowl losers
What would the newspaper headlines have looked like if Tom Brady and the New England Patriots lost to the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl? Thanks to the Boston Globe, we don’t have to speculate.
The early edition of the Boston Globe that went out to readers on Monday featured a dramatic photo of Brady laying on the turf after throwing his first-half interception. The headline reads “A Bitter End.”

The Patriots were down 28-3 at one point, so hardly anyone believed the newspaper headlines would be depicting them as champions. Brady, on the other hand, was confident enough to lead his team all the way back and film this commercial several months ago. There’s a reason the guy is almost unanimously considered the greatest quarterback of all time.
