Credit to Tampa winning despite Brady being irratic. Assumed if they were to have any chance it would be because Brady threw six touchdowns to Rodgers' four, or something crazy like that. Also credit to them for winning three straight road games (and seven straight, over all).

Hope they get pumped in the Super Bowl, though. Preferably by the Bills.

Won't they be the first team to play a Super Bowl at home? Quite a few of my friends are Bucs fans so happy for them. One in particular is from Tampa but his wife is a massive Packers fan so that would have been an interesting night. :)

Yeah maybe a little bit knee jerk 😂. Think it's definitely something that needs to be explained though. To take the ball out of the hands of probably the most skilled QB in history, having perhaps his best ever season makes zero sense.

It must have been predetermined that they were going to.kick the FG before the 3rd down. If Rodgers knew he had 2 downs to get the TD he would have ran for it.

The key moments and decisions ultimately cost the Packers. The interception at the end of the 1st half was about as blatant a hold on Lazard as you could wish to see, but to allow a TD from the last play was unforgivable.

What's the deal with Buffalo fans? I can't quite work out what their reputation is. Any help for the uninitiated?

Seen as some of the noisiest and most dedicated fans in the NFL. Obviously saw their team lose 4 Super Bowls on a row, which can't have been fun.

On the downside, Trump is a Bills fan.

I think Trump is just a Trump fan and hates the entire league for not kicking out all the African-Americans who disgracefully consider not being murdered by the police every five minutes more important than standing for a stripey bit of cloth.

Bit of an anticlimax, that. Chiefs were very good, Bills weren't. Not helped by two cowardly decisions to kick field goals when they needed touchdowns to put any pressure on KC.

Trump hates the NFL for not letting him have a team

Chiefs trying to repeat for the first time since the Cheatriots did it in about 2004.

Buccs coming from nowhere to challenge, but have Brady and Antonio Brown 😤

Lots of bottling on fourth down has backfired these playoffs. FG decision by LaFleur last night worst of the lot though. I said as soon as they did it they're not getting the ball back.

Was odd, as meant they still needed a TD.

If they fail on 4th down, Buccs still have it deep in their own half.

That Tom Brady chap is pretty good, he should have a good career ahead of him no matter what happens in the Super Bowl.

Pat Mahomes looks pretty sharp as well, should be a good game.

As in, they're finished with him, or he's finished with them?

Think both be and Green Bay have moved to Scotch those rumours today.

Would be a bit weird if Rodgers and Stafford both leave the NFC North after so long 🥳
