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
