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.
