Super Bowl 51 will be played in Houston on Sunday. The New England Patriots are the slight favourites heading into the game against the Atlanta Falcons. And the game is full of story lines to keep you locked in:
- Deflategate Revenge: Will Commissioner Roger Goodell, who dealt Patriot’s QB Tom Brady a 4 game suspension, end up presenting the MVP award to Brady?
- Youth versus Experience: Can the young Falcon defense rise to the challenge against the experienced New England team? The Patriots are vying for their 5th Super Bowl in 16 years. The Falcons have never won.
- Secret Weapon: Is ping pong the x-factor for the Falcons?
- Family Ban: Which family member will Tom Brady ban next from talking to the media, after muting his father?
