The Falcons were so close! Up 28-3 in the third quarter? There’s no way the Patriots will come back. It can’t happen. It won’t happen.
And then, to cope with more losing, people took to Twitter to make their best jokes comparing the Atlanta Falcons’ implosion to the shock many felt on election night.
Here are some of our favorites:
Atlanta has a 99.3% chance of winning, per ESPN. That’s where we had Trump’s chances in Pennsylvania at 1:10AM on Election Night

If the Patriots win it’s 1000000% the Russians

I can’t believe the guy with the foreign model wife and a sketchy history with the rules just won after being written off.

Wow. Just like the November election. Complete with Falcon fans celebrating their Super Bowl victory 30 min early.

Warriors blew a 3-1 lead
Indians blew a 3-1 lead
Hillary blew an election to Trump
Falcons blew a 25 point lead
Nothing is impossible.

Hillary should’ve spent more time doing outreach to the Falcons’ secondary.

Bernie would have beat the Patriots.

This is looking like Hillary all over again.

At least one person felt pretty good about the Patriots win.
What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!
