"Unbelievable. I would have lost that bet," said Steve Emery of Rockport, Mass who went to bed at the half thinking the Pats had lost the game.  "I couldn't [stay up]. I had to get up… at 3 in the morning, so I would have liked to have seen it, but I couldn't watch it last night."

"You knew it was going to be a good game," said Howard Crabtree of Johnston as he got his Monday morning coffee. "I mean it certainly didn't start out that way but the result is what was desired."

The Pats won 34- 31.
