Social Medias reaction to Super Bowl LI

Prior toimage-superbowllanding-heromatchupfalcons-vs-patriotsmax Super Bowl LI Social Media was in an uproar about who will bring home the Vince Lombardi trophy along with the title as the National Football League champions. As kickoff neared the New England Patriots were set to face off against the Atlanta Falcons in Houston, TX at NRG Stadium in the final showdown of the season on the gridiron. Support poured in from all corners of the map by the fans of these teams. As the game got off to a fast start in favor of the Falcons social media’s reactions were heavily in support of them but there were also many fans who were backing the 4-time super bowl champion New England Patriots. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones were connecting like Wi-Fi as they were steamrolling alongside the offense that extremely dominated in the beginning of the game.

As the excitement flared up on the field the social media outlets followed right along. Going into halftime the Falcons led the Patriots 21-3 with many people saying the game was over and there was no hope for the Patriots. screen-shot-2017-02-06-at-1-13-03-amWith the first half in the rearview, the Patriots quarterback Tom Brady came out for the second half poised and ready to lead the charge. He did just that leading the greatest SuperBowl comeback in NFL history as well as the first game to go into overtime in the history of the game. Quite a humdinger if I do say so myself!
