Super bowl 51 had to be one of the best football games in the history of the game itself . It was an American football game played by the Conference champions Atlanta Falcons vs New England Patriots.
When the game first started no team could over come the intense defense and the score remained 0 to 0 until Atlanta took over in the second quarter with 23 points.Most people thought the game was over because Atlanta was leading by 19.The Patriots never gave up hope.Commercials were coming on selling Falcon Super Bowl shirts.
The 3rd quarter was not really a blow out because both teams managed to score a low amount of points. The greatest comeback in Super Bowl history happened in the 4th quarter. Atlanta let the Patriots break their defense and score 19 points, which lead to a death match overtime, which means who ever scores first wins the championship. The teams go into overtime tied with 28. The Atlanta Falcons almost scored, but they were running the wrong rout in the defense.
It’s the Patriot’s ball with little time left. So, they run a pick, which gets James White an open lane, and he scores the touch down. The crowd goes crazy over the comeback, and quarter back Tom Brady is given the MVP award. The Patriots win 34 to 28 winning Super Bowl 51.
After the game, Tom Brady told Fox 11 news reporters that this Super Bowl was not the greatest game he has had because the whole the team was in throughout the game. He says he’s proud of the come back but not the game.
