Tom Brady improves to 5-2 in SuperBowl games as the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime in Houston.
It was the first overtime game in a SuperBowl game in NFL history. It was one of the most dramatical games you will ever watch. The Falcons scored the first two touchdowns and led 28-3 going into the 3rd quarter.
A Matt Ryan’ led Falcons team seemed as if they have arrived and were on their way to a championship. The team seemed too young, too athletic and too explosive for the veteran Patriots from the first hike. Patriots’ running back LeGarrette Blount was benched after the 1st quarter because he could not find any offense.
The Falcons’ defense and offense was burned out during the entire 2nd half.
Tom Brady threw for 466 yards, 62 pass attempts and scored 2 touchdowns for the entire game. The Falcons did not score during the second half.
If Tom Brady were to retire today his legacy would be set and stoned as being the greatest quarterback of all-time. He accomplished what players like Payton Manning, Joe Montana, Dan Marino, John Elway, Brett Favre, and the other all-time greats could not. 5 championships with 1 team.
