Super Bowl 51 The last two storms were dominated by Deflategate’s speeches, and after the Patriots had their quarterback suspended for four games earlier this year, are now officially a game to get the final revenge NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
If the Patriots can shoot the Falcons in the Super Bowl LI, prepare the ground for what could be the most uncomfortable ceremonial trophies of all time, as Goodell will have to deliver the Lombardi trophy to Tom Brady, the owner of the Robert Patriots coach Bill Belichick Kraft.
The trophy is usually the owner, but would not be a surprise to see Kraft deferring to Brady, especially since Brady was forced to miss the first four games of the 2016 season through punishment by Deflategate Goodell.
Taking the Lombardi trophy will not be easy though. If Belichick and the Patriots want to bring back their fifth trophy, they will have to shoot down the high-flying Falcons.
In the past six weeks, the Falcons have been blowing for all Atlanta has scored at least 33 points in each of their last six games, including four games in the regular season and two playoff games.
Of course, the Super Bowl is different. Many teams have struggled because the weather is too big, something the Falcons will have to avoid. Super Bowl 51 The match against the Patriots will mark the first appearance of Atlanta in the Super Bowl of a 34-19 defeat against the Broncos in Super Bowl XXXIII in January of 1999.
The game will also mark an opportunity to avenge Falcons coach Dan Quinn. Before taking the job in Atlanta, Quinn was with the Seahawks. In his final game with Seattle, Quinn was the defensive coordinator at the super Bowl XLIX, who ended up losing the Quinn team to the Patriots when the Seahawks decided not to give the Marshawn Lynch ball into the backyard.
On the sidelines of the Patriots, Belichick will be training in his seventh Super Bowl of the NFL. Belichick had kept a sixth record with Don Shula, but now he has it for himself.
Brady never lost the Falcons and Matt Ryan never beat the Patriots, but that could change in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Here’s a look at the Super Bowl schedule, as well as a brief summary of every playoff game that brought us to this point.
