Pick-six and the Falcons are flying in Super Bowl LI

HOUSTON -- Well, this game is not going to script.

The Falcons have taken all the predictions about a shootout and turned that talk on its head with a dominant defensive performance in the first half of Super Bowl LI. New England has been unable to get anything going, with the unit hitting rock bottom on a Tom Brady pass attempt with 2:35 remaining in the half.

Robert Alford, you may be going to Disney World.

And, how about that Brady whiff?

This was unknown territory for Brady.

The pick-six gave the Falcons a 21-0 lead. No team in the 50-year history of the Super Bowl has come back from that large a deficit. Counterpoint: Tom Brady, though.
