I love New England Patriots fans. They are passionate, fun, over the top, and rowdy in large part thanks to the greatest run of sustained success in NFL history.
However, Sunday was not their finest hour.
New England fell to Denver 20-18 in the AFC Championship and in turn, watch their run to successful defend the Vince Lombardi Trophy come to an end.
New England’s missed two-point try was a necessity after the extremely reliable Stephen Gostkowski missed an extra-point following a one-yard Steven Jackson touchdown run.
As is the case often during postseason games, mistakes by placekickers tend to hang around during games for awhile. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why Gostkowski blamed himself for the loss in a postgame interview.
You’d think Gostkowski, who hit 523 straight extra points dating back to 2006, would catch a break from Patriots fans.
Let’s go to Twitter.
Perhaps, this one is the topper…
Get a life, guys. The Patriots would have been rolling out of wild card weekend without Gostkowski this season.
