Game facts: Super Bowl LI (Patriots)

Frequent visitors: This will be New England's ninth Super Bowl appearance (most in NFL history). 

Front runners: The Patriots haven't trailed in a game since Week 12 (longest streak since 2005 Colts).

Marquee matchup: This game will feature the NFL's top scoring offense in the regular season (Atlanta) and its top scoring defense (New England). 

Good sign?:The Patriots have had a top-10 scoring defense in every Super Bowl-winning season during the Bill Belichick era. 

Unlike anything they've seen: New England is yet to face a QB who finished in the top-10 in passer rating during the 2016 regular season. Matt Ryan finished first in passer rating (117.1).
