Patriots superfan Mark Wahlberg missed the whole comeback because his son got sick


Mark Wahlberg's love of the New England Patriots is no secret. So given his obsessive fandom (and the fact that he's got Hollywood money), it's no surprise that he was at the big game.

But he left in the third quarter, when the Patriots were down 28-3 to the Atlanta Falcons, and missed the record-breaking comeback, New England Sports Network reports.

It wasn't because he doubted Tom Brady. It was because his son got sick.

Wahlberg explained himself on Instagram on Monday.

A reporter spotted Wahlberg leaving the stadium.

His sons were probably pretty upset at missing the big moment, too.
