2016 NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LI

New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons  This is the ultimate matchup: the best defense (Patriots) vs. the best offense (Falcons).  The immovable object vs. the unstoppable force.   I believe the game will come down to this: how the Falcons’ D fares against legendary the Patriots running game.  One has to figure that legendary QB…
