Boston station’s super calls game for wrong team

NBC Boston made an on-screen error reporting last night’s New England Patriots win.

The station was reporting on the Patriot’s win live, even as a banner along the bottom of the screen read “Patriots lose to Jags in AFC Championship.”

Ironically, the super was directly above a narrow graphic reading “New England Patriots: AFC Champions.”

The game, which aired Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018, was the deciding name in deciding who would face off in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. NBC will air the game.
