Video: Dilfer's take on Sunday's wild game

By ESPNBoston.com



ESPN NFL analyst Trent Dilfer analyzed Sunday night's wild game between the Patriots and Niners the way a boxing commentator would describe a fight between two heavyweights trading haymakers.

"For the most part I think it was the 49ers dictating terms in the first half," Dilfer says in the video above, "and the second half there during the scoring run by the New England Patriots it was the New England Patriots playing at the top of their game. And there's going to be be ebbs and flows when two really good teams meet each other. I think that's what we saw more than anything else."
