This is the third Super Bowl we have hosted in H-town, with the previous ones happening in 1974 and 2004. If SB 6 unfortunately passes, it'll be the LAST one we get to host
But back to talking about the big game on Sunday
Got one last prediction to make to close out this 201617 NFL season, and in addition to successfully repeating as the TransGriot NFL prognostication champion, I've gone 9-1 during the NFL playoffs.
We have a battle between the AFC Champion New England
The Falcons come into this game at NRG Stadium on a roll, having won their last six games after that December 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at the Georgia Dome.
They secured the number 2 seed, and then their number one offense went to work obliterating their playoff opponents the Seahawks and Packers by a 80-41 margin.
The defense has stiffened considerably since that December 4 loss to the Chiefs.
on a fourth and one pass play with 14 seconds left to preserve the win. The Patriots were also coming off their bye week at that time.
They also rolled through the AFC playoffs, outscoring the Texans and the Steelers 70-33 in their two playoff games.
If they can overwhelm them on offense and the Falcon defense can #RiseUp, force Brady off his spot in the pocket, beat him up, get some turnovers in the process and turn them into TDs they have a shot at taking the NFL title back to the ATL.
If they don't, and the Patriots defense does to Atlanta what they consistently do by taking away what you like to do best, and by extension shut down the high flying Falcons offense attack, it's going to be a long day at NRG for the Falcons.
