Broncos halt Patriots' comeback to win AFC Championship, advance to eighth Super Bowl
Monday January 25th, 2016

The Patriots were eliminated from the playoffs in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, and Twitter had a field day.

After their 20–18 loss to Denver, Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the rest of the team were crying Michael Jordaned everywhere. No one was safe.

Even Patriots fan Bill Simmons was memed.

Michael Jordan’s son Marcus took notice of all the memes, and gave them a thumbs up.

Another victory for the good folks of Twitter dot com.
