Here are 10 things we’re most excited to see during Super Bowl 51.
Just like that, there is only one more meaningful game left of the 2016 NFL season: Super Bowl 51. Two teams, the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots, have played hard all season and it all comes down to this final game at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX on Feb. 5, 2017.
New England comes into the Super Bowl riding a nine-game winning streak and having only lost two games the entire season. One of those games was early in the year when their quarterback, Tom Brady, was suspended for the first four games because of Deflategate. With Brady this season, the Patriots are 13-1 and have looked the part of a Super Bowl contender. After two dominant playoff victories this season, the Patriots will have their toughest test on Feb. 5, the Falcons.
Atlanta comes into the Super Bowl hot as well, winning their last six games. They have been dominant in the playoffs as well, blowing out both teams they played. They head into their final game averaging 40 points per game and 457.5 yards per game this postseason. It all starts with their quarterback, Matt Ryan, who has played MVP-caliber football all season long
Obviously, the Super Bowl is exciting by itself, but here are 10 things we’re most excited to see during Super Bowl 51.
