That Game - Superbowl LI

Super Bowl LI (51) is the kind of game that defines why we love sports. In fifty years of Super Bowls, no team had ever come back from more than a fourteen point deficit. At one point, the Patriots were down by twenty-five. 

The statistics said it was impossible. Never been done. Couldn't happen. But yet play after play, improbable catch after improbable throw, the Patriots kept closing the gap. 

We love sports because we want to see the impossible. To see teams break curses. To be reminded that as long as we have breath in our bodies, time on the clock, and the will to fight on, that sometimes - maybe even just one time - there's still a chance to win.
