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.

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.

The only thing that brings everyone together is friday night football. The Permian Panthers were custom to winning, but this starts to disappear when their lead tailback suffers from a life changing injury. Everyone lost hope in the team, but Coach Gaines believed that he can uplift the teens and bring them to victory. The coach has a way with the football players during the half time.
