This photo, shot by USA Today’s Mark J. Rebilas, will be the lasting image of a wild Super Bowl XLIX. It shows a triumphant Tom Brady taking a victory knee while Richard Sherman extends his hand in congratulations.

It will go viral because it looks like the New England Patriots quarterback is dissing the verbose Sherman.

Other photos shot by Rebilas and his colleague Andrew Weber, however, torch that narrative.

So, yeah. The first photo will be memed and shared on your Facebook feed for days to come with amateur comedians working out some of their worst Super Bowl-related humor.

Just thought people should know the context here. It takes nothing away from the brilliance of the image. Hell, if anything, it amplifies it.

What. A. Damn. Game.
