Super Bowl 51 was a banger! This game was played by the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. This year’s game was action packed and included the first ever overtime in Super Bowl history. In the first quarter, the game started off very slow with each team scoring a whopping zero points. The second quarter, on the other hand, was very interesting. The Falcons put up 21 points on the board, leaving the Patriots down 21-3. Going into halftime, the Patriots were down by 18 points.
Lady Gaga takes over the stage and gives a spectacular halftime show.
The Patriots dug themselves into a huge hole. In the start of the third quarter, the patriots score a quick field goal, and then another later in the quarter. The fourth quarter is where it all happened. Tom Brady and the patriots are down by 19. They get two touchdowns and two, two point conversions tying the game. The Falcons score 0 once again giving the Patriots a chance to come back in the first ever Super Bowl overtime! The Patriots are praying that they win the overtime coin toss. They manage to win it and drive down the field for a come back. This is an unforgettable Super Bowl and is one of the most intense games in NFL history.
