Brady fairytale as Patriots fightback seals Super Bowl

In the statement, Reed offers his congratulations to the City of Boston and to the New England Patriots on a "hard fought Super Bowl victory", as well as the Atlanta Falcons.

Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett says he is not anxious about upsetting team owner Robert Kraft by not attending New England's trip to the White House as Super Bowl champions.

As if the comeback wasn't enough drama, New England won this National Football League title after losing offensive weapon Rob Gronkowski to a season-ending back injury and the backdrop of Brady missing the season's first four games due to the Deflategate suspension. On the second play of the second quarter, New England running back LeGarrette Blount fumbled trying to fight for extra yards. I keep having flashbacks to certain parts of the game or certain plays, and every time it makes me want to scream.

Owner Robert Kraft, MVP quarterback Tom Brady, backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo and other players are leaning over the sides of World War II-era amphibious duck boats to wave at a wildly cheering crowd of several hundred thousand fans. The Falcons high-powered offense face off against a very talented Patriots defense.

The New England Patriots are taking their victory lap.

Scotland's Vern Cotter says defeat of Ireland is 'great win - best yet'
Joe Schmidt has expressed his disappointed at the manner of Ireland's defeat in the Six Nations opener with Scotland. The 2016 Six Nations was a mixed bag for Ireland , but they went out on a high with a 35-25 win in Dublin.

In the 1984 season, his second in the NFL, Marino threw 48 touchdown passes, at the time a record. Even with just three points, New England ran 41 plays, which meant more later in the game.

"It was great. She's been through a lot", Brady said. "He did a great job to get his hands underneath it, and it was an fantastic play". You have a 28-3 lead in the third quarter of the Super Bowl and find a way to lose. It was a big play in the game. The Patriots' mediocre front seven is better at stopping the run than rushing the passer, so it's unlikely New England will be able to consistently pressure Matt Ryan. It's fitting, then, that this year's Falcons have the highest scoring offense (33.8 points per game) since those 2013 Broncos (37.9), while the Patriots have allowed the fewest points per game (15.6) this season since the 2013 Seahawks (14.4). New England missed the extra point and followed that up with a terrible onside kick try to give Atlanta great field position. Offensive and defensive plays result in 19 points.

The Atlanta Falcons have only reached this stage once before, in 1999, when they lost to John Elway's Denver Broncos.

The Falcons defense held strong throughout the first half as well, holding the Patriots to a mere 3 points.

But a further Gostkowski field goal made it 28-12 and when Brady hit Danny Amendola for a six-yard touchdown, with a successful two-point conversion to follow, it had suddenly become a one-score game.
