New England Patriots Win Historic Super Bowl 51
The New England Patriots are your Super Bowl 51 champions! They have won their fifth Lombardi Trophy since 2002, defeating the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in Houston.
The Falcons, offensive juggernauts all season, held leads of 21-0 and 28-3, but Tom Brady engineered a comeback for the ages, tying the game at 28, forcing the first overtime game in NFL history. After winning the coin toss, the Patriots marched down the field before running back James White scored, diving and getting the ball just over the end zone chalk.
Tom Brady now has five Super Bowl victories in his record-setting seventh Super Bowl appearance with head coach Bill Bellichick.
Running backs James White and Legarrette Blount helped carry the load, as did star wideout Julian Edelman. Defensively, the Patriots held the Falcons and their high-octane offense scoreless in the second half and overtime.
