At about 9:30 pm last night the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in the first overtime Super Bowl game. Can you believe that it took 51 Super Bowls just for one to go into overtime?
I really wanted th Falcons to win that game because I have gotten tired of the Patriots always winning, but I have to congratulate the Patriots on arguably the best Super Bowl comeback in history. If you did not get a chance to watch the game I will yell you what happened: The New England Patriots were down 28-3 to the Atlanta Falcons at half time. The Patriots then scored 25 unanswered points to tie it 28-28 and send the game into overtime. In overtime the Patriots won the coin toss and scored on their first drive to win the 2017 Super Bowl.
Many can agree no matter what team you were rooting for, that game will be a “Super Bowl for the ages”. If you are a big Falcons fan I can only imagine the pain you are going through knowing you were so close to being the champions. Just know there is always next year.

Super Bowl 51 is approaching and the two teams that are going to participate in it are the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. It was a long fought battle the whole season for both of these teams, and for one of them it is all going to pay off.
The first kickoff will be at 5:30pm on Sunday February 5th. Not until later that night though will we know who the 2017 champions will be. I really want Atlanta to upset New England because I am tired of New England always winning and if the Atlanta Falcons win they will get there first championship trophy. The New England Patriots on the other hand have one 4 Super Bowl championships and have been to the playoffs 22 times. A lot of people do not like the patriots because of “Deflategate” if you do not know what that is I am going to give you a brief overview. Basically at the 2015 AFC championship game where the New England Patriots faced the Indianapolis Colts there was an allegation that the New England Patriots tampered with footballs used in the American Football Conference (AFC) championship.
