timNow the two week waiting period before Super Bowl LI begins. As you all probably know, we have the New England Patriots (of course) playing against the Atlanta Falcons. The two teams, however, seem to have taken a different route to the big game. The Patriots come into seemingly every season as one of the favorites to make the Super Bowl. The Falcons sort of flew under the radar this year, and people didn’t seem to fully understand how good they actually are. All throughout the playoffs we heard about how teams like Dallas, Green Bay, or Seattle could make it out of the NFC, and yet the Falcons made EASY work of 2 of those 3 teams. It just goes to show, it doesn’t matter how you get there.
