Last Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots were crowned the champions of the NFC and AFC, respectively, advancing to the Super Bowl. The two teams will battle in a little less than two weeks to become the champions of pro football for the 2016 season.
This matchup features the high-flying Falcons offense, the top-scoring unit in the entire league, against the Patriots’ brand of balanced success, which has led them to their seventh Super Bowl under Bill Belichick and Tom Brady’s guidance.
These two teams have not met since the 2013 season, and they will have a Super Bowl rematch in the Falcons’ new stadium in the 2017 season. For now, however, both teams are focused on Houston.
Here are the details on this year’s title game.
