The theatrics of Super Bowl week are finally over and the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots are counting down the hours before they will face off for the NFL Championship.
Though the 2016 NFL Playoffs have been awful so far, this matchup appears to be a good one. Each team is led by one of the best NFL quarterbacks in the game. The Falcons No. 1 scoring offense will test its might against the Patriots No. 1 scoring defense. Of course, one of the most intriguing storylines is Atlanta’s chance to win its first Super Bowl in franchise history vs. the Patriots extending their dynasty to five Super Bowl titles since 2001.
