The New England Patriots were able to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. Here are five players that stepped up in the win.
Super Bowl LI turned out to be one of the best of all-time between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. Fans of the Falcons won’t agree, however, this turned out to be a great game.
With the Falcons in control in the second half, it was safe to assume that they were going to be Super Bowl Champions. Everything had to go wrong for the Falcons and then right for the Patriots. That is exactly what happened.
In the fourth quarter, Tom Brady was staring at his third Super Bowl loss. In the first half, things didn’t go right for the Patriots. They were able to move the ball well, but mistakes prevented them from finishing drives.
It was shocking to see the Patriots only total three points in the first half. While the Falcons’ defense had improved a bit, the Patriots’ offense really let the team down. Despite impossible odds, the Patriots were able to erase a 25-point deficit to defeat the Falcons in overtime.
In a win like this, there were a lot of big plays and key players that helped them achieve that. Most notably, the catch by Julian Edelman was the most miraculous play of Super Bowl LI. While that was a big play, there were plenty of others in the game.
