What Had Happened Was: 2/6/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Tom Brady brought the New England Patriots back from a 25-point deficit, converted two two-point conversions at the end of regulation and helped the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons, 34-28, in the first-ever overtime Super Bowl game. The Patriots scored 31 unanswered points and the Falcons never saw the ball in the extra period. Since 2001, Brady has helped New England play in seven Super Bowls, winning five with coach Bill Belichick.
Move over 2004 Yankees, 2016 Jordan Spieth, '93 Oilers, '03 Cubs and Red Sox, et. al. Make room for #SuperBowlLI Falcons. Good grief.

Atlanta has a 99.3% chance of winning, per ESPN. That's where we had Trump's chances in Pennsylvania at 1:10AM on Election Night

It's a good thing the Falcons are up 21, because 20-point deficits in Houston can be overcome. We would know… pic.twitter.com/GW8c1Ju2aB
