    I remember that during BB's Monday interview on WEEI, he mentioned his reasoning for kneeling on the ball at the end of the first half. He mentioned being on the 11 yard line. He also mentioned there was wind (I forget if they were with/against at that point) that factored into his decision.

    Is it possible that Brady's end zone INT was impacted by the wind, and that it might have been a TD without the wind? That ball was intercepted by about two inches.

    Let's not forget, the SB is held in a dome.

    I know that the flags on the goalposts were not moving, so I don't think so. But I would defer to anyone who was actually there.....

    There was definitely a mild wind in the stands , 10 mph.

    But, I don't know what it was like on the field. When I came into the stadium under the lighthouse, the wind was stronger.
