This year for Super Bowl LI (51 for those not well versed in football or Roman numerals), the AFC was represented by the #1 scoring defense in the NFL, and the NFC was represented by the #1 scoring offense in the NFL. For the most part, the playoffs leading up to this game were pretty dull. Most games were complete blowouts. But every football fan in America who was not previously a New England Patriots fan was, for one day only, an Atlanta Falcons fan. Atlanta had had a storybook season and were ready to end it on a high note with a championship title under their belt. It all came down to 60 minutes of play and they were more than ready.
Here is Super Bowl LI as told by Friends.
