G.O.A.T going to Disney
Most football fans could have predicted the most valuable player for Super Bowl LI would turn out to be New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
However, no one could have predicted how the game itself turned out. Super Bowl LI will go down as being one of the most historic Super Bowl games in NFL history, and Tom Brady would be the man to thank.
Brady may have proved to everyone he is the Greatest of All-Time as he led the Patriots to an unbelievable win, completing 43 of 62 passes for 466 yards to earn his fourth Super Bowl MVP award. All of these are records.
The game appeared over in the first half as the Falcons scored three straight touchdowns and took a 21-3 halftime lead. Later, the Falcons added a touchdown in the third quarter to take a 25-point advantage. The most points any team was able to make a comeback in the Super Bowl was 10-points, so it seemed like a long shot for the Patriots to make a comeback.
It was in the second half where made his move in the first ever over-time Super Bowl, after regulation finished with a, 28-28, tie. In over-time, Brady took the Patriots’ offense on a 75-yard, eight-play drive which was finished off by James White scoring the game winning touchdown on a two-yard run.
The Patriots scored 19 points in the final quarter, including a pair of 2-point conversions, and then marched in the first possession of the overtime to seal the win with a touchdown.
For Brady, who started the season with a four-game suspension because of the “Deflate Gate” controversy, it was a vindication and a “day of records”, as an ESPN analyst pointed out. To finish the historical night, Brady posted on his Twitter account; “Going to Disneyland”, officially making him “The Goat” of the game.
