This blog is about American Football, if you’re not aware of the rules of American Football, you can find them in my previous blog here!
Firstly, I’d like to say that my team won (New England Patriots)..but that in no way will bias this post.
Underdogs- Atlanta Falcons, against the favourites- New England Patriots. This being said the majority of the USA were cheering on the Atlanta Falcons (Something to do with New England being too good).
Okay so i’ll admit it, the first half wasn’t a great half. Patriots down by a score of 21-3. However, if Atlanta can score 21 points in a single half…so can the Patriots?
End of the 3rd Quarter saw the score increase 28-9. Not looking good at all.
Fifteen minutes remain until Atlanta can claim its first Super Bowl. The Falcons lead the Patriots 28-9 at the end of the third.

But this is where the game gets exciting. After several hours of American football, the Patriots find some rhythm in the final Quarter.
The Patriots rally to successive touchdowns and suddenly the game is 28-20. With 2 minutes and 25 seconds left on the game clock, Brady throws the ball…it gets knocked in the air by Atlanta…it falls slowly…it’s grabbed by a Patriot… Is it caught? Is the Game over?
IT’S CAUGHT. SOMEHOW IT IS CAUGHT.
Out of nowhere the game is tied, 28-28. Time for overtime!
The Patriots can’t lose now? Right?
Right. THEY WON, on the opening “drive” of overtime!
