I will apologize if this was already discussed in another thread. Still trying to wrap my head around this. 22-17 if kicking the extra pt or 23-17 if you make the two pt conversion. Anyone?

They wanted to make it a 6 point game just incase NE scored they would have a chance to block the PAT, or the pats could muff the snap, ect.

All about numbers. If you are up 6 rather then 5 you have a chance to block a PAT if they score a touchdown. Or if they kick 2 field goals you are tied.

Kicking an XP puts them up 5, which in terms of winning or losing the game is essentially the same as being up by 4 (given how time was left). As mentioned, going for two and being ahead by 6 gives them a slim opportunity to maintain a tie score if New England scores a TD.
