For the first time in a pretty long time, the NFL is laughing at the New England Patriots at the conclusion of a regular season. All Bill Belichick and Tom Brady had to do was defeat the lowly Miami Dolphins to secure a first-round bye and the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoffs. Instead, FitzMagic happened.
The New England Patriots did something very atypical at the conclusion of the regular season, they lost to the Miami Dolphins and blew the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoffs. Dolphin QB Ryan Fitzpatrick pulled out one of his patented ‘FitzMagic’ appearances and the rest is history. Now the Patriots have to play this week instead of getting a bye week. They will host the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, 01/04, @ 5:15 PM PST.
Following the mishap, the Pats official Twitter account posted some vague response to the embarrassing loss, but some followers were not so ready to move on.
The tweet seemed simple enough, but madness followed.
