The wildest ending in Super Bowl history

Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots, defeated the Atlanta Falcons 34-28, in overtime, to win the Super Bowl.

In the first quarter, not much happened offensively for the 2016/17 season MVP Matt Ryan, of the Atlanta Falcons, as the first quarter ended 0-0.

In the second quarter, Devonta Freemen ran it in for the first Atlanta touchdown. The Falcons then got the ball back and scored again, this time throwing it to the tight end, Austin Hooper, for another touchdown, making it 14-0 very quickly. Even though no team has ever come back from being more than 10 points behind, the Falcons were still relentless. Tom Brady ended up throwing an interception, which was returned for a touchdown by Robert Alford, a starting corner for the Atlanta Falcons, making it 21-0.  The Patriots got some life back by kicking a late second quarter field goal, making it 21-3 at the half.

The Falcons started the second half the same way they did in the second quarter – scoring a quick touchdown making it a 28-3 game. Matt Ryan threw his second touchdown to Tevin Coleman. Brady then finally threw his first touchdown of the game, late in the third quarter, giving Patriots fans hope in a comeback. That hope quickly went away though, as Gostkowski, the Patriot’s kicker, missed the extra point, narrowing the deficit to 19 points going into the 4th quarter: 28-9.

Matt Ryan was sack fumbled by Donta Hightower, but the Patriots could not capitalize with the great field position they had and settled for a field goal making it 28-12 in the 4th quarter, with 9:44 left in the game.  Atlanta got the ball back, but didn’t do much with it as they went 3 and out. Tom Brady then drove down the field, once again, and threw a touchdown pass to Danny Amendola. The Patriots were successful in their 2 point try making it a 20-28 game. The Patriots somehow got the ball back again with 3 minutes left, scoring with less then a minute on the clock making it 28-28 and sending the game to overtime.

The refs called the coin toss for possession in overtime. The Patriots selected heads and the coin flipped heads. The Patriots selected to receive the ball, and they drove down 75 yards and scored the game winning touchdown, making the game 34-28, and completing the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.
