In 2017, American football fans witnessed what many sports commentators are already calling the greatest Super Bowl ever in Super Bowl LI. Super Bowl LI can be logically argued why it was the greatest Super Bowl to date. In fifty Super Bowls, Super Bowl LI was the first to go to overtime. In addition, the Patriots statistically executed the greatest comeback of all time in Super Bowl history by twenty-five points, scoring nineteen of those points in the fourth quarter. The more intriguing records set in Super Bowl LI were the offensive statistics by both teams.
With 10:25 left in the half Jones picked up eight more yards giving his team a first and goal at the Falcons one-yard-line. From there he busted in to give his team a 18-6 lead.

Bad luck continue to plaque the Falcons, when a 25-yard touchdown run by Sanks was called back because of a holding pently, at the 8:03
Super bowl 51 was the greatest super bowl I have ever seen in my personal opinion. Not just did the New England Patriots come back from a twenty five point deficit against the Atlanta Falcons. This amazing super bowl performance by not just the New England Patriots, but also Tom Brady’s out of this world performance and leadership.

The Sea Eagles hit back to level the scores 12-all at halftime after earning multiple repeat sets to pressure Wests Tiger’s try line.
Imagine owning half of an entire NFL football team. Well this is what it is like to be Jack Molloy in Red Zone. I’m reading Red Zone by Mike Lupica, and I’m on page 212.

Some of the details are very well authored, but some of the other details are just too long and unnecessary. For example, he says, “We took a 7-0 lead, then they kicked a field goal. After scoring another touchdown, we were up 14-3.“. Personally, I think that he should not include every scoring play in each game he plays in.

The popularity for the sport grew greatly from then to now.The game was played on January 15, 1967 and was won by the Green Bay Packers. The Packers also went on to win the second super bowl in 1968.

Have you ever wondered why college football has bowl games instead of a playoff system? Well I have and college football needs to stay with bowl games. That is what college football is known for.
