Welcome to some NFL Alternate History. As a Patriots fan, I lie awake at night sometimes wondering "What if the helmet catch was dropped?" How would this effect the league for years to come. Let's see how this goes.
The Big Day
David Tyree is not able to hold on to the Helmet catch. Giants don't convert on 4th down. Patriots get the perfect ending. They become the first team in NFL history to go 19-0.
Brady never tears his ACL and the Patriots march their way to a 14-2 record, beat Miami in the Divisional round, Beat Pittsburg in the AFC title game, advance to Super Bowl XLIII. Randy Moss makes a spectacular catch in the end zone with 35 seconds to go, and the Patriots go back to back, for their 5th Super bowl title.
