Although Mark Wahlberg is considered one of New England's biggest super-fans, the actor was caught leaving the Super Bowl with his family early last night, tragically missing Tom Brady's mythical comeback.

Some figured that the legendary actor couldn't handle seeing his Pats lose, so he headed straight to the nearest exit. Wahlberg decided to put an end to these blasphemous rumors, and settle the score in an Instagram post. Here's what Marky Mark wrote:

"I had to leave the game early because my youngest son wasn't feeling well. Trust me, I would have loved to be at the stadium -- but family first. Doesn't mean I don't love my Patriots too!"

Check out Wahlberg's explanatory IG post below. Do you guys buy Marky Mark's excuse, or nah?
