The New England Patriots were trailing the Atlanta Falcons 28-3 nearly halfway through the third quarter, so the Globe clearly tried to get a jump on the press deadline by sending out this headline:

It was around 9 p.m. Eastern time while the Patriots were trailing 28-3, but the paper clearly didn’t have the proper faith in Tom Brady to win the game.

To be fair, not many expected New England to make a comeback, but it wasn’t a great look for the paper.
