I’m not a huge fan of the Patriots. I respect Bill Belichick and Tom Brady but I am not a fan of them. They simply win too much! That being said this game was hard to watch. I was watching along with the world when the Patriots, in the Superbowl, were down 28-3 in the third quarter. That is a huge deficit to come back from, considering Brady’s biggest comeback was 24 points prior to this game. As you could imagine, when Falcons running back Tevin Coleman scored on that play to make it 28-3, I was excited. My family was excited (They are Seahawks fans) and everyone in the house thought the game was over. Not me though. Although I thought it was highly improbable that the Pats could win, I still watched, knowing in my gut something was going to happen. (For the record, I was the only person in my household to pick the Patriots to win, but I did hope I was going to be wrong). What did the Patriots do after Coleman scored that touchdown? Just usual Patriots stuff like score 31 unanswered points while nailing 2 2 point conversions in the process, forced a crucial fumble of Falcons QB Matt Ryan which led to one of the scores, and came all the way back. Despite Falcons cornerback Robert Alford intercepting Brady and taking it to the house 82 yards for a score, despite Falcons receiver Julio Jones grabbing 4 balls for 87 yards, despite Matt Ryan going 17/23 with 284 yards and 2 touchdowns, despite Falcons stud running back Devonta Freeman gashing the defense for 75 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries and despite Brady getting sacked 5 times, Brady and Belichick were able to storm back and beat the Falcons to win their 5th Superbowl together. Brady set the record for most passing yards in a superbowl and runningback James White set the record for most receptions in the big game. (14) Credit should also be given to the defense of New England as pass rushers Donta Hightower and Trey Flowers (2.5 sacks) were able to wreak havoc in the backfield, not allowing a single point after that Coleman touchdown. That, in part with Bradys precision and Belichicks coaching, enabled New England to come back and take home the title. Enjoy it Pats fans, not like you guys have enough trophies (I joke but seriously, give these young guys a chance!) What a way to wrap up the 2016-17 NFL season, excited to see what happenes next year as the Atlanta Falcons look to return to the big game with a boatload of talent and the greatest quarterback of all time (I had to say it) Tom Brady enters his 40’s and looks to continue his dominance alongside the greatest coach of all time, Mr. Bill Belichick.  Thank you for the great game and a shoutout to Lady Gaga to performed a great halftime show! Thank you NFL, until next year! (or the draft, which we will cover here at unbiasedsportspreviews.com)
