Tom Brady can make history on two accounts for the New England Patriots when they take on the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51 on Sunday.
Brady obviously could become the first quarterback to win five Super Bowls as a starter.
Talk about an amazing start for Dion Lewis. The running back who scored New England’s Really Cheap Jerseys first touchdown also scored its second, on a 98-yard kickoff return with a minute to play in the first quarter. It was the first postseason kickoff return touchdown in franchise history, and it was Lewis’ first career kickoff return touchdown. Just like that, Houston’s scoring drive didn’t seem as important. 14-3, Patriots.
A key Patriots penalty helped extend a Texans drive that actually was pretty impressive 14 plays, 62 yards and 8:12 off the clock in the first quarter. Nick Novak’s 33-yard field goal capped the drive after it stalled in the red zone. 7-3, Patriots.
The Patriots woke us up. Dion Lewis against a linebacker in the flats is a mismatch New England will take every time, and the Patriots used it to draw fist blood against the Texans with a 13-yard Tom Brady touchdown pass. The two-play drive was assisted by a questionable pass interference call against A.J. Bouye on first down, which gave New England the ball in Houston’s territory. The score came Texas Rangers Cheap Jerseys two plays later. 7-0, Patriots.
