It’s finally coming down to this and that’s Super Bowl LI. On Sunday, February 5th in Houston, the Atlanta Falcons take on the New England Patriots. If you follow my predictions, then you know that I actually picked Green Bay and Pittsburgh to meet in the Super Bowl. The Atlanta Falcons took care of the Packers by jumping on them early and never stopping. Matt Ryan came into the game with something to prove and ended doubt on if he should be the NFL MVP. On the other hand, New England took care of Pittsburgh in dominating fashion. While many thought the battle between Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan would be a shootout, I believe this one will be. Will New England claim their 5th title in the Brady/Belichick era or can Atlanta finally bring home their first championship?
We have arguably the two best QBs in the league in Matt Ryan and Tom Brady faces each other? The Atlanta Falcons bring the best offense in the league with so many weapons. While many people are focusing on the Falcon offense, the defense has been somewhat dominate in the past month and a half. During the NFC Championship game, Atlanta pressured Rodgers throughout the game and they were able to get good hits on him. On the offensive side, they averaged almost 34 points a game and anyone can score at any time. If that wasn’t enough, Julio Jones, the league’s best WR is playing like a man on a mission. Will Atlanta finally being a title back to the ATL? With the New England Patriots, they can solidify themselves as the great dynasty ever with a win. Ever since Brady took over as the QB, they have appeared in 7 Super Bowls and 14 AFC East crowns, meaning they’ve won every year except 2002 and 2008. If someone in the NFL could come up with a game plan to stop the Falcons, it has to be Bill Belichick. Despite trading away their best defender, Jaime Collins during the season and finished with the best scoring defense. There are so many storylines when it comes to Super Bowl LI, but we know that it’s all about Matt Ryan and Tom Brady. Can another team besides the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl? Honestly, I think Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are on a mission and will finally win a Super Bowl title.
