“And it is alllllll over!”…is what Mike Goldberg would have said after James White scored in overtime to give the New England Patriots the win at Super Bowl LI. After mounting a huge comeback, Tom Brady secured his 5th Super Bowl title, the most by any quarterback in the history of the NFL.
As you can imagine, social media was buzzing from the moment the opening kickoff hit the air. And we have some of MMA’s best Tweets and Instagram posts right here for you:

Yeah this is all well and good but would it kill them to mention once Tom Brady was drafted in 1995 by your @Montreal_Expos? Sheesh.

Not a fan of the first TD wins. Coin toss and you get possession. Let's switch to COLLEGE RULES. Equal possession to score.
