Historic Super Bowl Win For New England Patriots!!!


Screen Shot 2017-02-06 at 8.54.40 AMSuper Bowl 51 did not disappoint! The game will go down as the greatest comeback of all time and one of the most exciting championship games in history. The New England Patriots overcame a 25 point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime, the first overtime in Super Bowl history. The Falcons led for 41 minutes and 18 seconds while the Patriots never led until James White’s TD in OT. White had the game of his life (and now fans are rushing to buy his jersey) with 14 receptions and 3 TD’s.

At halftime while the rest of us watched Lady Gaga’s sing her heart out in an entertaining and well choreographed show, Patriots’ Safety Duron Harmon reportedly inspired his team by saying  “they were going to pull off the most dramatic comeback in Super Bowl history” and they did! Down 25 points, the Patriots did in fact record the largest comeback in Super Bowl history. The previously largest comeback was a deficit of 10 points.  To no ones surprise Tom Brady was named the Super Bowl MVP, setting yet another record having earned the honors in 2001, 2003 and 2014. This was a game for the ages with multiple records broken.

Screen Shot 2017-02-06 at 8.54.32 AMAfter the game, tears were flowing as Brady hugged coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.  Brady said, “we’re all going to remember this for the rest of our lives.” When Kraft accepted the Lombardi Trophy he added, “I want to say to our fans, our brilliant coaching staff, our amazing players who were so spectacular, this is unequivocally the sweetest.” Patriots 34, Falcons 28.

Perhaps we all should have known the Patriots would win the Super Bowl when on Saturday night Falcons QB Matt Ryan was announced the NFL MVP. This is the 8th straight time an NFL MVP went on to lose the Super Bowl.
