Two-time Super Bowl champion and 120 Sports football analyst Bryant McFaddon previews the Super Bowl LI matchup between the Patriots and Falcons in the heart of Texas. Atlanta is making just its second Super Bowl appearance, while New England is in the big game for a record ninth time.
The Falcons lost their only previous Super Bowl to Denver in January 1999. The Patriots are 4-and-4 all-time, including 4-and-2 under head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady.
It's the third Super Bowl appearance in the last six seasons for the Pats, who used a goal-line interception two years ago to beat the Seahawks, 28-24. New England is back in the title game despite Brady beginning the season with a four-game suspension for his role in the 2015 "deflategate" scandal.
The Falcons beat the Seahawks and Packers to reach the Super Bowl, while the Patriots topped the Texans and Steelers.
Pop singer Lady Gaga will perform the halftime show and Luke Bryan will sing the national anthem.
