  4. The Downfall:

  5. Falcon fans were nearly in tears once the Patriots gained possession of the ball in the second half, redeeming themselves one touchdown at a time slowly catching up. Scoring 19 points in the fourth quarter left both team fans shocked, not knowing what the outcome was going to be.
  6. At the end of the fourth quarter, the game was tied up 28-28 creating suspense in all 114.4 million people watching the Super Bowl. At this moment in history, it was the first Super Bowl game to ever go into overtime, making it more suspensful as if it wasn't enough already!
  7. The Comeback:

  8. Tom Brady, quarter back of the Patriots, helped guide his team into victory. In overtime, the Patriots won the coin toss which in their favor started with the ball. Right from then, it was a game changer. The underdogs had the ambition and strategy to win this game. Shortly after the clock started, James White, running back, scored a 2-yard run for the Patriots making history.
