An air of inevitability took hold once the New England Patriots tied Super Bowl LI. The Falcons were spent. When the Pats got the ball to start overtime, it was academic.
The best part of the piece is the phrase, "The Patriots have been here before, which is probably why everyone and their mother want them to lose." There is profound truth in art.
After another boring run of playoff games (with one notable exception), we finally have our Super Bowl LI teams: it's the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons.
Seemingly everything that could go wrong for the Packers did, and the Falcons made them pay for it.
The Falcons just as surely re-established themselves as Super Bowl favorites.
This is the kind of shit he's doing to the Packers, despite the malady.
The only way to beat the Packers is to overwhelm them with points. Thanks to OC Kyle Shanahan, Matt Ryan and the Falcons have the game plan to do that.
