We already knew that Tom Brady was great. But coming back from a 28-3 deficit in the Super Bowl and leading his team to a game winning touchdown on the first drive of overtime, resulting in his NFL-record 5th Super Bowl ring and NFL-record 4th Super Bowl MVP is legendary stuff.
Of course, he didn't do it on his own- he had the help of his teammates and future Hall of Fame coach Bill Belichick- but Sixers center, and basketball twitter icon, Joel Embiid thinks there was even more at play.
During New England's unbelievable comeback, Embiid tweeted out that the only explanation was that the game was rigged. How else can you explain Atlanta's preposterous play calling and clock management down the stretch?
Either that, or the Falcons were pulling a Sixers and flat out tanking to move up a draft spot.
Wow I'm sorry but this is rigged.... Atlanta didn't burn the clock down, didn't run the ball at all. #Rigged— Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) February 6, 2017
Or the Falcons are just tanking... I don't know— Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) February 6, 2017
