I think the Falcons lost it just on sheer size of their advantage.
Matt Ryan also won the Associated Press' Offensive Player of the Year award on February 4, beating Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers.
Most fans, pundits and Twitter experts believes the New England Patriots were toast by halftime (your's truly was in that group). I look back at one sequence in particular. In the immortal words of Dennis Green, the Patriots were exactly who the Falcons thought they were.
Early in the game Brady missed some routine throws, seemed rattled by the pressure Atlanta were putting on him and threw an interception that was returned 82 yards for a touchdown that left New England trailing 21-0 late in the second quarter. "The Boston show was re-running the week after the Super Bowl, and [executive producer] Al Jean had the idea to just sneak in a non-sequitur freeze-frame joke".
Who was your Super Bowl MVP? And none of this is to say that Brady has been flawless; he threw disgusting interceptions in the Super Bowls against Carolina and Seattle, and his pick vs. Atlanta was far from being a career highlight.
"It's very sad to me that someone would do something like this, and it's like taking a great Chagall or Picasso or something", Kraft said.
There are three positions that stick out when it comes to who the Patriots should use their first round pick on. I don't have it, I don't know where it is or where it went.

Isaac: This was gonna be Brady's trophy if he threw for 200 yards and a touchdown. I don't know how a lot of teams practice, but at the end of the week we do what we call, "Move the field, ' and you'll start at one end and work your way down, first down, second down, third down, and you'll move your way down the field". In fact, his go-ahead drive in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLII (8-for-11, 71 yards, TD, after getting drilled all night by the Giants" relentless defensive line) and his near-game-tying drive in the "15 AFC title game in Denver (50 yards, TD, two fourth-down conversions) both belong in the conversation for the man's most impressive feats. He broke, tied or extended nine Super Bowl records.
Brady has said he put the jersey in a bag in his locker after the game, and it hasn't been seen since. You figure Dak Prescott should only improve with experience and there is no reason to expect a regression from the best team in the NFC. "Consistent fight all season long" is what Harris claims the Patriots had that helped them come out on top this year.
