British tabloid gives Super Bowl win to wrong team

Get out the goals and check the tables, because New England just won a pretty important fixture.

British tabloid The Daily Mail used a long web headline to let its readers know of New England's latest triumph, a win over the Seattle Seahawks, celebrated by Tom Brady with his famous wife.

But the publication named the other inhabitant of Gillette Stadium -- the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer -- as the victorious organization.

The Patriots, meanwhile, were the winners of Super Bowl XLIX by a score of 28-24. It's a comical illustration of American football's place outside of the United States. But The Daily Mail nailed it in naming Seattle's team correctly, so we can't be that far off from someday getting both teams right. Right?

The latest Around The NFL Podcast recaps Super Bowl XLIX, including Malcolm Butler's game-sealing interception, Tom Brady's legacy and more. Find more Around The NFL content on NFL NOW.
