On 5 February, the New England Patriots went head-to-head with, and defeated, the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51. The final score was 34-28 in overtime.

The Patriots went 17-2 on the season, all thanks to Tom Brady’s heroics. The New England Patriots won in dramatic fashion after being down by as many as 25 points in the third quarter of the game.

This all happened because of one person. Tom Brady led the Patriots to a historically epic comeback that the Super Bowl has never seen the likes of before. Being down by that many points with so little time left, Brady, the thirty-nine-year-old quarterback, had to act fast. He threw two touchdowns in the second half.

“It looked like it was all over for New England and their dynasty, but when Tom Brady threw that first touchdown, he was reminding us of who he was and that the game was not over,” senior Marckens Griffon said.  “Then he threw the second one, and everyone who was rooting against New England was beginning to worry.”

Tom Brady finished the game with a Super Bowl record of 466 yards and three touchdowns. Brady actually broke several records during his win. He won his fifth Super Bowl, the most for any quarterback in the history of the NFL. He also had the most completions in a Super Bowl with 42. Brady also garnered his fourth Super Bowl MVP award, passing Joe Montana for the most. He became the first quarterback with three Super Bowl fourth quarter comebacks. The most recent record he broke was leading his tenth game-winning drive in the postseason. The previous record was nine drives.

The patriots went on to score the dramatic touchdown in the final minutes of the game to which the Falcons did not have an answer. They went on to overtime, in which Brady then directed the eight-play, seventy-five yard drive, which White finished.

All in all, this Super Bowl was one for the history books, with all the records broken and the historic comeback. No matter if one is a fan of Brady or not, one has to admit Brady has cemented his legacy among the greatest players in history.
