Brady Wins It for the Patriots in the Most Epic Super Bowl Yet
This has to be the most memorable Super Bowl ever. While the Atlanta Falcons went into the game as the underdogs, we always knew that they were capable of pulling off an upset. The New England Patriots, on the other hand, had all that experience to back up their claim to fame-they went in to create history. However, nobody can really claim to have anticipated what happened.
Instead of a free scoring contest, fans were exposed to a dour performance in the pitch, with the scores remaining 0-0 for a long stretch. The Falcons deservedly took the lead in the second quarter, running the Patriots ragged and grabbing a 14-0 lead. They kept relentlessly pushing at the Patriots and were able to extend the lead even further, with the charts showing 28-3 in the third quarter.
At this point, the Falcons must have thought that they had it in the bag already. The offensive pairing of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones was slowly fading, and their devastating claws were slowly getting culled by the Patriots’ defense. In a dizzying 10-minute rout, the Patriots were able to run down this offense, pulling off great interceptions and making the impossible look possible. They came from behind to force overtime, the first ever recorded since the league started over 50 years ago. The rest, as we all know, is history.
Without a doubt, the man in the middle of it all was Tom Brady, seen as the greatest quarterback of all time. It is fair to point out that he did not have much of a game in the first 2 quarters, but he made a pretty strong case in his defense over the last 15 minutes. At the end of it all, Brady collected his fourth Super Bowl MVP award, which is the most ever collected by a player since the league begun. It is a run that is sure to cement his place in folklore, and the fact that his game jersey was stolen in the locker room will do very little to dull his spirits. This is an incredible turnaround for a man who (just months ago) was suspended for four straight games for alleged involvement in what came to be known as the Deflategate Scandal.
Atlanta Falcons were brilliant in the second and third quarters, but in the end, their coach admitted that they didn’t do enough to put the game away. Among those smiling with a sense of satisfaction will be President Donald Trump, who had predicted an 8-point victory for the Patriots.
