Super Bowl LI: 3 Things The Atlanta Falcons Have Going For Them

But just because Super Bowl LI clinched Brady's spot as the Super Bowl G.O.A.T. doesn't mean he deserved his fourth MVP award for his performance.

When the clock turned to the second quarter, it was New England that sparked itself to life first, with Brady signalling Julian Edelman to sprint up the right sideline and then hitting him with a flawless 27-yard strike.

Brady is now the first quarterback with five Super Bowl victories, securing his spot as the greatest quarterback of all-time.

Then as long as championship success remains an important measuring stick for quarterbacks, a sixth-round pick from MI is the greatest of them all, and it's not even close. The last Super Bowl we played in, Super Bowl 49, we're down multiple scores in the fourth quarter.

Football fans have debated whether Brady should be considered the best quarterback of all time.

But statistics won't win the game on Sunday. But Philadelphia Union coach Jim Curtin is going the other way, predicting the Patriots' top-rated defense will be too much for Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. You want to bet against them?

The Atlanta Falcons will never live down the worst choke job in National Football League history.

The Falcons led 21-0 in the second quarter and 28-3 midway through the third. This season was the most successful of his career so far. Still, Devonta Freeman's 37-yard run is a sign there will be ample room to operate if the Patriots are overly focused on Julio Jones.

Broke record for most completions (43) in Super Bowl. The extra point was initially blocked, but the play was called back on a penalty on New England.

What time is the Super Bowl? It is also an all-day event.

It is incredible to see such passion about education, which too often gets overlooked for more trivial matters. It is not competitive, it is not the American way, and it does not lead to better education for our students.

It's a high stakes game that brands need to get right. The MVP had 38 touchdowns and only seven interceptions this season. He had it clinched in many people's minds that he already was the greatest quarterback and this didn't do anything for his legacy.

And somehow, after 21-0 and 28-3 and 28-9 and 28-12, the Super Bowl was tied.

- The Patriots have 11 fumbles on kick/punt returns this season, the most of any team since 2006. That is a misspelling of Super Bowl. But it would not be enough as New England hit back with 31 unanswered points.

-No Super Bowl champion ever allowed more than 400 points in the regular season.

"We played aggressive. We played to win".

There was a thought at halftime that the worst thing that happened to Brady was playing in this game. Some popular food items include pizza, chicken wings, chips, and, of course, beer.

"We've got a great group", Brady would say on that stage, before he talked about how meaningful this game was, and how meaningful it was to have his family with him, wife and children and father and a mother who has been ill for months.
