While the Patriots are working to win their 5th Super Bowl, the Falcons are still working to win their 1st. Atlanta lost in Super Bowl XXXIII to the Denver Broncos, 34-19, who were defending champions. The Pats on the other hand just won a 4th in Super Bowl XLIX, beating the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24, who were also defending champions.
New England is making history by playing in the Super Bowl for an NFL record 9th time. Quarterback Tom Brady is setting a record by playing in his 7th Super Bowl, and Head Couch Bill Belichick is setting a record by coaching in his 10th. With a victory, Brady, Belichick and owner Robert Kraft would be the first combination to win 5 Super Bowls in NFL history.
