Super Bowl Falcons vs Patriots

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

The way it works is??

* Having played, won the first time automatically full fills the service requirement
without it ever having a requirement to be filled again

Patriots wound up winning. Mc Daniels already had all his "Service to the NFL" requirements for getting into the Hall of Fame. But, this makes him that much more better than the Turn-Nover

Hmm, 2nd and 11 at the NE 23, ATL 28 NE 20 with 3:56 left on the clock: Run the ball, eat the clock, kick the game winning FG? No! Kyle get's cute and calls a pass. Ryan gets sacked. OK, Kyle, now it's 3rd and 23 at the NE 35, 3:50 left on the clock: Run the ball, eat the clock, kick the game winning FG? No! Kyle doubles down and calls another pass. 10 yard penalty for holding. Out of FG range. The rest is history. Kyle outcoached himself last night. smh #-o

Yes.

Of course, after Julio's great catch the Head Coach should have grabbed Kyle and said "Nice work getting us here. Now let's run from here on out."

Kyle should not have needed that instruction but he should have gotten it.

Amazing how patient New England remained.

Yes to running. There is a reason Gibbs had Riggins, Timmy Smith, Ernest Byner - Ricky Ervins. It was not so much a Riggo Drill as a Hogs Drill.

Must admit, though:

(1) If the Redskins are not playing I lose interest in the Super Bowl

(2) Current NFL play is boring: the five-wide receiver set, shotgun, all-pass-all-the-time

That OT touchdown was not reviewed but it would have been at TD on the next down or so.....

What a meltdown. I thought it was going to be a blowout by the Falcons........ wow

What a GREAT game - so many critical plays ...

I won a pool bet with a predicted final score of 33-28 - it wasn't Hog Bowl but it did get me a few hundred for a $10 pick :D

when the score got to 28-3 I said "well that's all they're going to get .. it's Brady time"

I think all scores are reviewed. They just confirmed quickly.

I watched it frame-by-frame on 100" HD. At first I mistook his elbow for the ball. After a few more watches I am convinced he scored. As knee is beginning to touch, Falcon leg on goal line is blocking sight of ball which is breaking plane though dark elbow behind ball is about 1 inch short.

20 Stats, Facts, and Records From Super Bowl LI

1. The Falcons became the third team since 1994 to run a first-down play with an eight-point lead or more inside their opponent's 25 with fewer than five minutes remaining and lose.

2. On that first-down play with 4:40 left, numberFire Live gave them greater than a 96% chance to win, a mark that was actually lower than it was earlier in the fourth quarter.

3. After Stephen Gostkowski's 33-yard field goal to bring the score to 28-12 with 9:44 left in the fourth quarter, the Falcons had a 98.45% chance to win, per numberFire Live.

4. If that 1.55% chance for New England seems low in hindsight for a team as good as the Patriots with such a storied quarterback, just know that they had lost all 10 games when trailing by 14 to 16 points with fewer than 10 minutes to go in the Tom Brady era prior to Super Bowl LI.

5. After their mind-blowing comeback, the Patriots became the second team in NFL history to win an overtime game after overcoming a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter by scoring two touchdowns with two two-point conversions.

6. In so doing, they set a Super Bowl record, as 10 points was the largest Super Bowl comeback ever, prior to Super Bowl LI. The Patriots trailed by 25 in the third quarter.

7. After falling behind 28-3 with 8:31 left in the third quarter, the Patriots ran 49 plays compared to just 16 for Atlanta.

8. They out-gained Atlanta 351 to 44 after that mark.

9. The Patriots' 93 offensive plays were the most by a team in Super Bowl history.

10. Atlanta's 46 offensive plays were second-fewest in Super Bowl history.

11. So, the Patriots both ran more plays (49) after trailing by 25 than the Falcons did all game (46) and bested Atlanta's 344 total yards by accumulating 351 after getting the ball down 25.

12. Among the 582 instances of a team playing in overtime since 2000, Atlanta's time of possession (23:27) ranked 574th. Put another way, only 8 teams in nearly 300 overtime games since 2000 possessed the ball for a shorter duration than the Falcons did.

13. On a very related note, Julio Jones had 4 targets (that led to 4 catches for 87 yards). In his 85 career games including the playoffs, he's seen fewer than 4 targets just once, back in his rookie season against the Minnesota Vikings. He was playing through a hamstring injury and missed the game prior.

14. Matt Ryan maintained a 144.1 passer rating on his 23 attempts, which is the ninth-highest quarterback rating from a losing quarterback in any game since 1950 with at least 20 attempts. It's the best passer rating from a Super Bowl-losing quarterback in history.

15. Now, three of the four highest passer ratings from Super Bowl-losing quarterbacks have come against the Patriots: Ryan (144.1) in 2017, Jake Delhomme (113.6) in 2004, and Russell Wilson (110.6) in 2015.

16. Tom Brady's passer rating of 95.2 ranked 29th among 43 Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks with at least 20 attempts.

17. The Patriots became the first team in Super Bowl history to win despite throwing a pick-six. Previous teams with an interception return for a touchdown were 12-0 in Super Bowl history.

18. Running back James White set or tied four different Super Bowl records. He set the record for catches (14), points scored (20), and touchdowns scored (3). He also tied the record for two-point conversions (with one) alongside Danny Amendola.

19. This was the largest margin of victory for the Patriots in a Super Bowl ever.

20. In all, 31 Super Bowl records were set or tied in this game.
