Kraft basks in his ‘sweet­est’ suc­cess

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

SU­PER BOWL Robert Kraft de­scribed the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots’ Su­per Bowl vic­tory over the At­lanta Fal­cons as the sweet­est of the team’s five vic­to­ries.

The Pa­tri­ots pro­duced the great­est come­back in Su­per Bowl his­tory to win 34-28 in over­time and claim a fifth ti­tle in the most dra­matic of cir­cum­stances.

“Two years ago we won our fourth Su­per Bowl down in Ari­zona and I told our fans that was the sweet­est one of all,” Kraft said. “But a lot has tran­spired over the last two years and I don’t think that needs any ex­pla­na­tion. I want to say to our fans, bril­liant coach­ing staff and play­ers who are so spec­tac­u­lar, this is un­equiv­o­cally the sweet est. I’m in­cred­i­bly proud to say for the fifth time, we are all Pa­tri­ots.” Ju­lian Edel­man, who has a Jewish fa­ther and plays wide re­ceiver, played a key role, pro­duc­ing what has been de­scribed as “a mir­a­cle catch” as he man­aged to evade three At­lanta Fal­cons play­ers and catch the in­com­ing ball just cen­time­tres off the ground as the Pa­tri­ots made up a 25-point deficit.
