Daily Mail claim New England Revolution win Super Bowl XLIX

The reaction to Super Bowl XLIX has been unprecedented as conspiracy theories, criticism and franchise implosions  have followed the ending of a very dramatic game.

The New England Patriots came out as 28-24 winners over the Seattle Seahawks as they won their fourth franchise Super Bowl title.

The media has been abuzz and have been trying to answer the big questions in the hours following the game.

The questions of what next for Marshawn Lynch, who made the play call that led to the interception and was there a reason the ball wasn't given to Lynch.

Its hard to remember a Super Bowl where the losing team were more focused on than the winners but 2015 has certainly given us that.


The Super Bowl is a two team affair usually but one British newspaper has made a big error that brings a third team into the big game.

It is even more than just bringing a third team into the Super Bowl, it welcomes a 33rd team into the NFL.

British newspaper the Daily Mail made a bit of a mistake in their headline:

"Tom Brady celebrates with wife Gisele Bundchen after being named MVP in New England Revolution's Super Bowl win over the Seattle Seahawks". - Mistaken Daily Mail Super Bowl headline

The British media outlet accidentally running with a headline that named New England soccer team the Revolution as the Super Bowl champions is one to laugh at.

Tom Brady may not play for the Revolution, the Revolution may not even play the same sport as the Seahawks, but it is a headline that grabs attention.

Revolutionary night in Arizona

The New England Revolution may not have contested in the Super Bowl on Sunday night, but there could have been the start of a revolution in Seattle as a result of the game.

It was announced shortly before kick-off that the Seahawks had offered runningback Marshawn Lynch a large contract extension.

But with the Seahawks final play, they chose to pass the ball instead of letting Lynch run it despite being less one yard away from a Super Bowl winning touchdown.

Conspiracy theorists feel that the Seahawks coaches deliberately stopped Lynch from getting the ball in order to paint quarterback Russell Wilson as the hero.

Whatever the real reason for the playcall, the Seahawks now face a crucial off-season and will need to nurse their defense back to health and hope they can keep the core of their offense in place if they want to make it to the big one again next year.
