Super Bowl 51: Patriots vs. Falcons, 2nd Half Open Thread

NFL: Super Bowl LI-New England Patriots vs Atlanta Falcons Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

In a stunning turn of events, the Atlanta Falcons jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first half. It was shaping up to be closer -- the Falcons were up 14-0, but New England was driving with under three minutes to go in the first half. Tom Brady threw a pick six, though, giving Atlanta more momentum than they could have ever dreamed of on this stage. The Patriots could only muster a field goal by Stephen Gostkowski to make it 21-3 at the half. Can Brady help lead a comeback, even though the largest comeback in Super Bowl history is ten points?
