14 years ago, the kick heard ’round the world


This will be the best half hour you’ll spend tonight.

Back to where it all began.  When Patriots won their first Super Bowl by upsetting the St. Louis Rams 20–17.

Without any timeouts, Tom Brady led his team down the field to set up kicker Adam Vinatieri’s historic game-winning 48-yard field goal as time expired.

Brady, who completed 16 of 27 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown, was named Super Bowl MVP for the first time.

And check out Hayden Bird’s great take on how Super Bowl XXXVI foreshadowed a Patriots dynasty and led to a slow collapse in St. Louis on BostInno.
