Super Bowl LI - "28-3"
For a majority of Super Bowl LI on February 5, 2017 in Houston, the Atlanta Falcons – who had never won an NFL championship – dominated the Patriots, who were vying for their fifth title. The Falcons scored three 2nd quarter touchdowns, including an 82-yard return off an intercepted Tom Brady pass, and led 21-0. Midway through the third quarter, Atlanta scored again on a Matt Ryan TD pass to make it 28-3, and New England – and its dynasty – felt like history. After a Brady touchdown pass to James White and a Stephen Gostkowski field goal narrowed the Falcon lead to 28-12 in the fourth, it seemed like too-little, too-late. But with 5:56 left, after an Atlanta fumble, Brady threw another touchdown and White converted the two-point attempt, and it was 28-20. After a Falcons’ punt, the Patriots – aided by a spectacular Julian Edelman catch – completed a 91-yard drive with a White TD run and a two-point conversion to make it 28-28. On the first possession of overtime, Brady, who finished with 466 yards passing and won his fourth Super Bowl MVP, led New England on a 75-yard drive with White scoring the winning touchdown – to cap the largest comeback in Super Bowl history.
