Still, I'm going to go with the math that tells me the Falcons have to overcome the fate that has claimed 99.4 percent of the city's previous teams.

Tom Brady led one of the greatest comebacks in sports history highlighted by an unbelievable Julian Edelman catch that helped lift New England from a 25-point hole against the Atlanta Falcons to the Patriots' fifth Super Bowl victory, the first ever in overtime.

When Falcons cornerback Robert Alford stepped in front of a telegraphed Tom Brady pass, picked it off and returned it 82 yards - strutting in the final 20 yards or so because nobody was around him - the NRG Stadium crowd was half in shock, and half delirious.

"It makes it all the more painful to be so close and have that lead and let it get away from you", Mack said.

"I'm kind of an introvert, I think". But if he had an explanation, it was rooted in the concept of determination.

After Trump left, however, the Patriots went on to accomplish a record-breaking comeback, tying the game up at 28 and sending it into overtime.

The Patriots were on the verge of getting on the board after three Falcons holding penalties gave them first downs, but Alford came up with a big play to thwart them.

Picking their spots to throw different coverages at Jones may be one of the toughest challenges for Belichick and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. "And we all bitch and complain about it, but we do it". And it gets lost because at the time, the perspective on our organization was we didn't know what we were doing.

They kept at it, all right.

But this one looked the dreariest for Patriots fans much of the night.

TEMPE, Ariz. - When the Arizona Cardinals watch Super Bowl LI on Sunday, they'll have more than just a passing interest that comes with also being professional football players.

Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time, and he gives the Patriots an advantage at the sport's most important position every time he steps on the field.

Regardless, the mission was to keep scoring. And uncommon as well, at least as far as eliminating big deficits to come back and win.

"If Atlanta can handle their nerves early in the game and not get behind, I really like their offense and their defense", Arians said.

So he leaped, and he did get his hand on the ball, which then hung in the air in one of those slow-motion sequences that seem to change games and careers and legacies. And in reality, I think we had a pretty clear vision about what it was we wanted to do, and it worked out well. "We had opportunities as players, and we made some mistakes on the field". "There have been some great quarterbacks, and Tom's in that one, two or three category".

He wasn't home yet. They fought back after Brady's first pick-six in playoff history. And then. the ball levitated. "I wish I could have done a better job of trying to get rid of that ball". But Edelman held it. He only had one game that could be described as below-average, and he's managed to raise his level of play in two postseason games, throwing for 730 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions. Or said it at all myself, since I'm not 100 percent sure what turnt, crunkest and littest mean. "I didn't know if a piece of the ball was touching, and I don't know what the dang rule is about a catch". But I suspect Lil Jon believes the parade would be pretty neat-o. A touchdown, another two-point conversion.

Historically, the toss has been a 50/50 proposition: since Super Bowl I, the coin has landed on heads 24 times and tails 26 times. Another Brady touchdown drive.

Gisele Bündchen looked absolutely gorgeous at Super Bowl 51 on February 5th at NRG Stadium, in Houston, Texas. "He was motivating us the whole game, even when we were down". Move over, David Tyree and Lynn Swann. Jerome Kearse. Julio Jones just a few minutes prior.

Just minutes into overtime, the first time overtime has happened in the history of the Super Bowl, the Patriots scored a touchdown and sealed the win!

Musical artist Lil Jon, an Atlanta native, was asked this week by nfl.com what would happen should the Falcons beat the Patriots. "But games are tough; you never can relax". The Patriots were at the point where they couldn't afford to take their eye off the ball for even a second. It should, because he's outpaced four-time winners Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw to stand alone with the most jewelry.
