No team had ever won the super bowl at their own stadium until the Bucs last year. Amazing it could happen back to back

Rams won it 23-20 with a touchdown in the last 2 mins.

Was SHocking in charge of the NFL refs as well?

Gutted

But at the same time so proud. After 30 odd years of embarrassment it was a special season

WP's Bengals one game away from the Superbowl after being far too good for the poor old Bills in the snow.

NFC: Eagles vs 49ers .... Niners on a 12 game winning streak.
AFC: Chiefs vs Bengals

You should check out the photos of the Bengals ground today, no green grass to be seen. Completely under snow

Sorry @Bengals fans but take heart knowing you have a generationally brilliant player at the most important position with a terrific coach in place to keep everything on track. The old days of the Bungles are long LONG gone.

ps. Out of interest, this tweet could apply to the Tiges as well after last year's near misses.

KC won it 38-35. Field goal with 11 secs to go.

Every sport has its eccentricities but it's still weird (albeit clever knowledge of the rules) that time management is the better option than scoring an open touchdown.

Don't think either there's another team sport where one position wins you titles. Pat Mahones' second half won the game.

As for the Aussies, Siposs is copping it for that ordinary punt kick in the last quarter although the whole Eagles' coverage stuffed up allowing a record punt return.

The punt return was obviously the fault of Siposs

Hang time is so crucial and that punt was a debacle
