Did referees fix the AFC Championship game for the Patriots?

The New England Patriots may have won the AFC Championship and punched a ticket to the Super Bowl, but that doesn't mean the battle is over. A referee appeared to be celebrating a touchdown with the Patriots, and only one penalty was called against the Patriots. All signs point to the Patriots getting some help from referees. Still, New England is a disciplined team and the team has had a contentious relationship with the NFL lately. It would be hard to argue that the fix was in. What do you think? 🏈

From Spygate to Deflategate, the Patriots have sordid history when it comes to getting an "edge." It's only natural that they get even more help from referees in their games, right? 

Not only did New England walk away from the AFC Championship with nearly a clean sheet on the penalty front, there was a referee literally celebrating with the team when they scored a touchdown at the end of the half to pull the Patriots within four points. While the zebras are usually more subtle than this, the referees' true loyalties were revealed. The fix is in, people!

It's laughable how much people hate the Patriots. They will look for any indication that the organization is cheating even though the league has no rooting interest in the success of New England. 

The truth is a lot more boring. The Patriots are one of the most disciplined teams in the NFL and they win games because they have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. That is it. They don't need the referees help to win. There is no fix, and the people with tin foil hats need to crawl back into the basement they came from.
