    On February 5, the New England Patriots played the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51. The game was looking like an Atlanta blowout, with the third quarter score being 28-3. By some miracle, or collapse, the New England Patriots scored 31 unanswered points. The game went to the first overtime in Super Bowl history, and a toss to running-back James White gave the Patriots the Super Bowl win.

     The story everyone is forgetting about is the quarterback for the New England Patriots. Tom Brady, has won 5 Super Bowl rings and has 4 Super Bowl MVP awards. He has been to 7 Super Bowls and proved he is the greatest at his position.

     Tom Brady will be 40 next season and has made no signs of retiring from football. The Patriots are loaded with relatively the same talent as this Super Bowl run, so they will be competing for a while.  Tom is the NFL’s golden boy and will probably be back again to go for his sixth Super Bowl title.

     The NFL saw the greatest comeback in its history, but the comeback would not have been possible without Tom Brady, the greatest quarterback in NFL history. While the back-up for the Patriots may be on the trade market, he proved his worth to the franchise earlier in the season when Brady was suspended four games. The patriots are facing a tough decision these next few years.

The team could either re-sign Brady for two more years, or let the new blood run the show. Whatever they decide in the future, this season will be remembered as the year Tom Brady, the greatest quarterback ever, led the Pats to an amazing win.
