The Atlanta Falcons — who beat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in the NFC Championship game– will advance to Super Bowl LI (51). The Falcons have not been to the Super Bowl since 1999 (18 years). The Atlanta Falcons were beaten badly by the Denver Broncos 34-19 in Super Bowl XXXIII on January 31, 1999.
This will be the New England Patriots 9th appearance at the Super Bowl breaking the tie breaker with the Dallas Cowboys and the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl appearances in NFL history. They have been to the Super Bowl 20, 31, 36, 38, 39, 42, 49, 51. Out of those nine appearances the Patriots have won four.
I have gone around Harris County High School and interviewed a couple of people asking them a series of questions. Who do you want to win the Super Bowl? The Falcons or The Patriots? Out of the six people I interviewed five of them said they want the Falcons to win, while one of them said they wanted the Patriots to win. What do you predict the score will be? Tabitha Reynolds said, “ I think the Falcons will be in the lead by at least twenty points”, while Morris Dean Pipkins III said, “It will be one hundred to nothing.” Are you happy the falcons are going? Trevon Hudson said, “Not really I don’t like either team.” The other five interviewees said they are happy the Falcons are going. Would you be surprised if the Falcons won, considering they have not been to the Super Bowl in a long time? Tabitha Reynolds, along with Nick Richey and Trevon Hudson said “no anything can happen.” My last question was, “Do you think Tom Brady will lead the Patriots to victory again like he’s done in the past?” Five of the people I interviewed said no they don’t think he will, while one individual said they’re rooting for him to win.
