    (AP) Miami, FL - This years Super Bowl would take place in warm Miami, FL in ironically a repeat of last years (simmed) Super Bowl where it took OT to decide the winner as the Vikings defeated the Patriots. 1 year later we have these same 2 franchises back at it again. The 1st Qtr got off to a slow start where both sides were feeling each other out trying to anticipate what their next move would be. The Vikings would make the first move at the start of the 2nd Qtr but their drive would stall and they would settle for a FG to go up 3-0. The Patriots would respond like they have all year long but not on the ground as Ridley was shut down all game. It would be up the arm of Eli Manning who would put the Patriots in position tot ake the lead setting up a 2nd and goal from the 1 where Ridley would punch i tin for a 7-3 lead. The Vikings not to be outdone looked to start settling in their offense as we approached the half and would score on a screen pass from 15 yards out to take a 10-7 halftime lead.

    The Patriots would get the ball to start the 2nd half and would work the ball through the air on 8 plays ending in an Eli to Landi TD strike to go back up 14-10 midway through the 3rd. Once again the Vikings would respond mixing up the run and pass finally getting Adrian Peterson on track by throwing draws at the Patriots defense catching them off guard. The Drive would end on a 1 yard Adrian Peterson TD to go up 17-14 in the 4th Qtr. Eli Manning took command of the offense on another 8 play drive and found himself on another 3rd an 9 from the Vikings 30 yard line where he attempted to hit Stevie Johnson but was picked off by former Patriot Brandon Spikes. On the very next play Adria Peterson would gash the Patriots up the middle for a 54 yard run where he was tackled by the ankles on a desperation dive attempt.

    The Vikings looked to be in total control forcing the Patriots to burn their first 2 timeouts where they found themselves on a 3rd and 2 at the Patriot 22 yard line. The Patriots were sending the house and the Vikings knew it so they decided to call a quick passing play which worked as Freeman hit Kyle Rudolph for the 1st down inside the 20 but as Rudolph turned upfield he was blasted by Devin Mccourtey causing a FUMBLE and the Patriots would recover at their own 10 yard line!!

    On the very next play the impossible would happen, The Patriots had just 1 timeout with 2:30 and 90 yards from a win but also knowing they just needed a FG to force OT. Eli Manning would drop back in a 3 WR set, the Patriots would look to Landi on a quick hitch as the Vikings Defense was playing 10 yards off almost the entire game. Landi would make the catch and break a tackle while also avoiding another diving Viking defender on the sideline and the race was on as Landi would score the go ahead TD putting the Patriots on top 21-17 with 2:15 to go.

    The Vikings would look to go to the air where the Patriots were prepared as Kyle Arrington continued his 2nd half heroics picking off Freeman to give the ball back to the Patriots. After forcing 2 quick timeouts it all came down to a 3rd and 7 where Manning would hit Landi one last time for 20 yards and securing the win as the Patriots ARE THE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS IN A HARD FOUGHT 21-17 VICTORY

    I have to give a big shoutout to DarkKnight89 for 1 hell of a superbowl, this could have gone either way and I could very well have been on the other end of this one. You have a great team so I am sure you will be back in the mix next play season.
