Malcolm Butler on Super Bowl loss: ‘I could have changed that game’

MINNEAPOLIS — New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler expressed his frustration about not starting in the team’s 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.

“They gave up on me,” Butler said after the game. “F—. It is what it is.”

The Patriots cornerback, the hero of Super Bowl XLIX, played a bit on special teams in the second half but not a single down on defense.
