One thought on “Super Bowl LI: Key Things To Know

  1. This was a really good game. I mean, the first three quarters were pretty usual and rather boring, but the last quarter – WOO! You can never underestimate Tom Brady and the Patriots. They looked out of it all night until the fourth and the receivers and their veteran QB stepped up and won it in OT. The catches in the final quarter alone were ridiculous. The Falcons played to their potential all evening (especially Matt Ryan), but it just wasn’t enough to beat the five-time Super Bowl champ QB.
