At halftime, Joc Pederson predicted the Patriots' epic Super Bowl LI comeback

Things were looking grim for the Patriots in Super Bowl LI against the Falcons on Sunday night. Atlanta took an early 14-0 lead and, at halftime, the Patriots found themselves down, 21-3. New England nation was worried. Touchdown Tom was without any touchdowns. No team had ever erased such a deficit in the big game.

But one man knew something nobody else knew:

Was it Joc's football skills that told him what was to come? Did his two adorable puppies whisper the secret in his ear? We'll never really know for sure, but Tom Brady and his teammates, even after going down, 28-3, staged the most epic comeback in Super Bowl history -- winning their 5th championship in 15 years. 

We're not saying Joc deserves a ring, but, yes, he probably deserves a ring.
