Super Bowl Preview and Synopsis

The Atlanta Falcons,  with quarterback Matt Ryan at the helm  and the New England Patriots, behind 4 time champion Tom Brady face off this Sunday at NRG Stadium for the football championship of the world, it is Brady who is the far more decorated, and likely the far more comfortable  with the enormity of the moment. Coming into this postseason, Ryan had one career playoff win since coming into the league in 2008. Brady has four times as many Super Bowl wins as Ryan had playoff wins. Without the help of Rob Gronkowski Brady will have to look out for other targets such as Edelman and Amendola. This game will be a battle of offense. Both teams have all star Quarterbacks, Matt Ryan winning the MVP and Brady just being an all around all star. This game will have no defense, the score will be through the roof. The score will be 28-21, Patriots win.
