#102 Atlanta Falconsvs.#101 New England Patriots
Written by Benjamin Hayes
The 2017 Super Bowl takes place in Houston from NRG Stadium. Unfortunately for Houston, the Texans did make it but the New England Patriots are back for their ninth trip to the Super Bowl against Atlanta, making their second trip. The Patriots beat the Steelers, 36-17 in the AFC Championship game from Foxborough in their last game. Atlanta rolled over Green Bay, 44-21 from the Georgia Dome.
