Patriots Can’t Win Biggest Game For Kraft

A season that began with heartbreak for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft ended with another loss.

The Patriots made no secret of wanting to win Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants for Kraft, whose beloved wife Myra died of cancer shortly before the season began. His grief is still so deep just the mention of her name brings tears to his eyes, and the Patriots have honored him — and her — by wearing patches with her “MHK” initials above their hearts.

Quarterback Tom Brady even tapped his patch twice and pointed skyward after throwing his second touchdown pass.

But the Patriots couldn’t win one last game for their owner, with Eli Manning leading the Giants on an 88-yard game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. Brady had one last chance to win it for Kraft, but his desperation heave into the end zone fluttered to the ground.

It was the second Super Bowl the Patriots had lost to the Giants in the last four years.
