Tom Brady and the New England Patriots made history last night by overcoming a 25 point deficit in Superbowl LI.  The Falcons had the Patriots on the ropes but could not hang on.  This also marked the first ever Superbowl to go in to overtime.   The final score was New England winning 34-28.

The game was a tale of two halves. The Atlanta Falcons controlled the first half. Their defense dominated in the second quarter and they LED 21-3 at halftime. In the second half they could not continue their great play, scoring just seven points the rest of the game.

The Patriots scored 19 fourth-quarter points to force overtime. That's when Tom Brady took over and led his team to Victory. Brady was named the game's MVP. Brady is now the winningest player in NFL history when it comes to Super Bowl victories. He may have also sealed his legacy as the best quarterback to ever play the game.

Today is Superbowl LI in Houston between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. Both teams have had great seasons and have definitely earned the right to be in the big game.

The Falcons have never won a Superbowl. They are led by a high-powered offense. Their defense isn't too bad either. Many people would like to see them win the Super Bowl, but is it because they are fans of the Falcons, or is it because they don't want to see the Patriots win?

This game has a lot of meaning for the Patriots as well. If they win it will be Tom Brady's 5th Super Bowl, making him the winningest player in Super Bowl history. But if they lose they are just four and three and Superbowl appearances. That makes them just above average.

Now on to the game, who will win you ask? I wish the answer was simple but it's not. This is an evenly-matched game and I could see either team coming out on top. I will give the slight Edge to the Patriots. Brady has proved time and again that there isn't a secondary that can handle him.

The prediction: New England 38, Atlanta  36
