Deion Branch gets my game ball as well. He made huge catches at every point of the game.
Rodney Harrison gets an honorable mention. I don't think his second interception was that vital, because I really don't think Philly was going anywhere with that horrific clock management. But, he made huge hits and great plays throughout. Incredible defensive output.
Terrell Owens also gets a huge thumbs up for his gutsy performance. I didn't expect him to play that well with his ankle injury.
And lastly, the NE offensive line and backs did a great job picking up the blitz. There were many great pickups through recognition by Brady and the team. That may have been the key to the Pats' offense getting off.
"The son of Bobby Bowden once again proved he's as predictable as a Julia Roberts' movie.
And upon further review, just as sappy, too."
