Super Bowl 51 is set. The Atlanta Falcons crushed the Green Bay Packers on Sunday earning just their second Super Bowl appearance of all time, while the New England Patriots handled the Pittsburgh Steelers to reach the championship game for the seventh time since 2001.
The Falcons and the Patriots have faced off just four times since 2000, with the Patriots winning all four matchups. However, this is obviously a new and improved Falcons team. We’re talking about an Atlanta team that had the best offense in the league led by who will likely be the NFL MVP: Matt Ryan.
The Patriots are just continuing to proceed the way they have for nearly two decades. The players change but the results stay the same. The Patriots finished with 10+ wins for the 14th consecutive season and reached at least the conference championship for the sixth straight year.
This year, the NFL Playoffs have been pretty disappointing, but it appears we truly have the best team from each conference represented in the Super Bowl. Hopefully that means we have a great game to finish the 2016 season.
