In case you didn't see it (or if you aren't a big NFL football fan) let me recap the game quickly: The New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons after the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history, led by their quarterback Tom Brady. It was Brady's fifth Super Bowl victory, a record surpassed by no other.
I am not a fan of either team, but I am a huge fan of DevOps. And after watching a replay of the whole game, I was struck by New England's DevOps approach to adjusting their strategy, which allowed it to come from behind and win the game. Meanwhile, Atlanta's failure to adjust their game plan to counter the Patriots felt like a very Waterfall approach, and so the Falcons suffered a heartbreaking loss as a consequence.
