It’s almost here, the conclusion of the NFL season. The Super Bowl is this Sunday with the New England Patriots taking on the Atlanta Falcons. The Patriots you might have expected way back at the beginning of the season, but the Falcons are certainly a surprise.
So what are the juicy storylines for the game?
Well, one has to be the idea of Tom Brady winning and Roger Goodell handing the Lombardi Trophy over to him and the Patriots. Oh how sweet it would be for the Golden Boy. Additionally, if Brady wins he becomes the all-time leader among quarterbacks for Super Bowl titles with five, edging out Joe Montanta and Terry Bradshaw.
On the other side is the likely MVP of the NFL season Matt Ryan. But his issues in the playoffs are following him into this game, but he can get rid of that with one big upset. Can Matty Ice pull it off and write a new chapter in his story?
There will be clash of offense versus defense in this game. The Falcons enter with the highest-scoring offense in the league, the Patriots counter with the best defense at preventing points. Which style will prevail on Sunday?
This year the NFL gets with the modern age and streams the game, along with all of the commercials, so you can watch all of it without a cable subscription.
