Falcons CB Robert Alford posts tweet celebrating intercepting Tom Brady in Super Bowl, but then deletes it

Atlanta cornerback Robert Alford picked Tom Brady off and returned it 82 yards for a pick-6, which gave the Falcons a 21-0 lead over the Patriots late in the second quarter.

It was a huge play in the game, but in the end it really didn’t matter because the Patriots came back from 25 points down to win the game, 34-28 in overtime.

Don’t tell that to Alford, who posted pictures of the play on Twitter Wednesday night with the caption: 2nd longest interception return of all time in Super Bowl history. Tom Brady’s first postseason interception for a TD in his career. #TAT

It was deleted shortly after it was posted, for obvious reasons, but thankfully a few screenshots captured the post.
