Patriots Storm Back to Stun Falcons in Super Bowl

11 August 2016 Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Schaub in action during the NFL pre-season game between the Redskins and the Falcons. The Atlanta Falcons defeat the Washington Redskins 23- 17 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta GA

Eighteen months ago, Galynn was diagnosed with an illness - the details of which have not been disclosed - but she will hopefully be at the game on Sunday and her son will pick her, and other family members, out in the crowd, just as he picks out Patriots receivers on scoring plays. By season's end the Patriots had beaten the Rams for their first of four Super Bowl championships. He played just three games as a rookie.

The Patriots have built their powerhouse around low-profile collegians and free agents as well as big names. The crowd went wild again for Tom Brady on this night.

New England fans in the building also gave Goodell a frosty reception when he took to the stage to hand the trophy to owner Robert Kraft. New England ran 93 and roasted the Falcons' defenders on a spit for the last two dozen of them. Everybody in the place knew what he was talking about. With all due respect to Tom Brady, who will play in a record seventh Super Bowl, Matt Ryan is on a real heater this season. "There's less pressure on the Patriots because they have been there". Even on the slow days leading up to the Super Bowl, controversy creates press and press keeps the game in front of the public. The five rings, passing Montana for the record.

Two weeks of hype has finally come to a close. It happened to Matt Ryan, the MVP of the league this time, the way it happened to Aaron Rodgers a couple of times in the playoffs.

A detail shot of Mache's custom Super Bowl LI cleats for Julio Jones. The Buffalo Bills beat the Houston Oilers after trailing by 32 points in a playoff game following the 1992 season.

A witness to the greatness of Tom Brady.

To win five of seven Super Bowls is incredible enough, but to do them all with late-game heroics takes it to another level. There has never been a big-game resume like his. They'll jump into man-to-man and zone and different things. He overcame multiple drops by his wide receivers and became the first five-time Super Bowl victor as a quarterback and the game's first four-time MVP.

UC Berkeley Chancellor Blasts Violence Over Yiannopoulos Speech
Campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof told reporters that the behavior of the protesters marks a shameful moment for UC-Berkeley. Yiannopoulos is a vocal Trump backer who has been called a racist and misogynist, among other criticisms.

Brady will have to wait for his "One For The Thumb".

Check out a few numbers - I swear it's just a few! - that may give you a better sense of what's at stake Sunday. That included Julian Edelman's deflected catch on the overtime-forcing drive, a ball that somehow suspended in air, an inch off the ground, until Edelman cradled it in his bright red gloves.

Overtime did not bode well for the Falcons. "At the 3-yard line, 2-yard line, you have to find a way in".

It was 28-9. Then 28-12.

The Patriots won the coin toss. Nightmare scenario for the NFL. Specifically, they were reminded that the Wildcats' victory over North Carolina for the 2016 NCAA men's basketball title, on a last-second shot, kicked off a remarkable stretch of major sports championships.

He threw one to White in the flat.

White was stopped for a three-yard loss on another reception but picked up 10 yards on another. Taylor Gabriel had four catches for 75 yards and two touchdowns, and Atlanta punted only two times despite Patrick Peterson holding Jones in check. All the time in the world.
