1. Super Bowl LI, Patriots vs. Falcons, 2017
Well, it looks like we have a new “best Super Bowl of all time”.
The first Super Bowl to go into overtime didn’t disappoint. After going down 28-3 and appearing dead in the water, the New England Patriots stormed back, scoring 25 unanswered points to send the game into an extra frame before adding the game-winning touchdown on a run by running back James White.
Tom Brady orchestrated the comeback by throwing for more than 400 yards and the Patriots buried some David Tyree demons (see previous slide) by making an impossible-looking catch of their own from Julian Edelman in the fourth quarter. The Falcons got an unbelievable catch from Julio Jones late in the game, but they weren’t able to add to their lead at all once they went up by 25, giving the Patriots the chance to chip away. Super Bowl LI granted Brady and Bill Belichick their fifth Super Bowl ring, an NFL record.Back to top
