Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons built a seemingly insurmountable 28-3 lead in Super Bowl 51, but the New England Patriots would then score 31 unanswered points for the 34-28 overtime victory.

Before this game, not team had ever come back from a ten-point margin in a Super Bowl. Tom Brady became the quarterback with the most career Super Bowl wins with five, and coach Bill Belichick has the most Super Bowl wins as a head coach.

Brady finished with a Super Bowl record 466 passing yards on a record 62 attempts. James White had 110 rushing yards and three total touchdowns.

The halftime entertainment was Lady Gaga.
