Brady, who was going for his fourth ring, took possession with 57 seconds left, and got his team to midfield, but his Hail Mary heave on the final play fell incomplete.

“It always comes down to one or two plays in this game. If you make it, you’re celebrating. If you don’t, you don’t sleep for a week.”
