Play stopped briefly in the dying minutes of the third quarter when the two players’ helmets got hooked together. Freeney and Bennett had to ask the officials for assistance, and one of them managed to separate the helmets.

It isn’t often one sees this in a football game, but it sure was amusing to watch, as this fan noted.

The Patriots went on to win the Super Bowl 34-28 in overtime at NRG Stadium after a thrilling fourth-quarter comeback that saw them erase a 25-point deficit.
Bennett also stated, following Sunday night’s win, that he would not attend the Super Bowl celebration at the White House because he doesn’t support President Donald Trump.
The tight end added he was not worried about what Patriots owner Robert Kraft might think of his decision.
‘I’m not really worried about that,’ said Bennett. ‘I’m not worried about it at all.’
Tom Brady skipped the Patriots’ White House trip after their NFL championship win in 2015, citing a family commitment.
The Patriots quarterback is friends with Trump, nevertheless, as both have stated they occasionally call each other and have played golf together.
Kraft and Pats coach Bill Belichick are also reportedly friendly with the President and former “Apprentice” star.
Bennett had previously said that he might not go to Washington, DC if his team won.
When a reporter asked him last week if he would take part in the trip, Bennett replied: ‘I don’t know, I’ve got to win the Super Bowl. But most likely no, because I don’t support the guy that’s in the house.’
