Super Bowl LI: Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots

It’s here!  The American sporting event of the year is here.  No, I’m not talking about the blood bath that is the current politics situation, I’m talking about Super Bowl LI (51 for us common folk).   This year’s Super Bowl takes place on Feb. 5 at the NRG Stadium in Houston, home of the Texans.

In a game earlier today, The Atlanta Falcons were able to overtake the Green Bay Packers in a tough defeat 44-21.  Just now, the New England Patriots are clinching the win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

At this point, I feel like it’s kind of assumed the Patriots will put an appearance at a Super Bowl.  It really shouldn’t have come of a surprise to anyone else.  They have already participated in the Super Bowl eight times throughout their franchise history, six of them being under head coach Bill Belichick and the handsome quarterback, Tom Brady.  They have the record for the most Super Bowls earned by a head coach/quarterback team as well as being the first pair to win a Super Bowl 13 years after the first. Since 2000, The Patriots have earned the distinction of being the most successful team in NFL history.  They have won 14 AFC East titles, all without ever having a losing season.  They also have have had the most wins in a ten-year period, a completely undefeated season in 2007, the longest winning streak of regular and playoff games in NFL History.

Not to be totally eclipsed,  The Falcons are the oldest franchise in the Deep South, forming in 1966.  Throughout their 51 year history, they have won the division six times (1980, 1998, 2004, 2010, 2012 and 2016).  The first time they were in the Superbowl was n 1998 for Super Bowl XXXIII when they lost to the Denver Broncos, 24-19.  Today’s win over the Green Bay Packers will earn them their second ever trip to the Super Bowl.

The Patriots have had their time in the sun, I’m hoping that the Falcons bring home the win this year.  Luke Bryan will be performing the National Anthem during the opening events and Lady Gaga will hold court for the halftime show.
