Last night the single biggest commercial sporting event in the world had it's moment of glory. American Football presented us with Super Bowl 51 and possibly the biggest L the world has ever seen.
The Atlanta Falcons squared up to the New England Patriots and at one point had a 28-3 lead. However, the Patriots got their mojo back and Tom Brady's team turned it around to win 34-28 in overtime.
Tom Brady is not the most successful quarter back in NFL history with 5 Super Bowl wins.
