A Boston Marathon fan held a sign with the Super Bowl score before the Patriots' wild comeback to motivate runners

Boston Marathon runners may have gotten some extra motivation from the New England Patriots on Monday.

During the marathon, one fan, presumably also a Patriots fan, stood on the side of the road holding a sign showing the score of Super Bowl 51, when the Atlanta Falcons led the Patriots 28-3.

Of course, the Patriots then promptly went on a historic comeback, scoring 31 unanswered points to win the game 34-28.

The message — don’t give up! Nothing like providing some well-meaning support to runners while also trolling Atlanta.
