Super Bowl LI in Photos: 13 Images of the Historic Game

Super Bowl LI in Photos: 13 Images of the Historic Game

By    |   Monday, 06 February 2017 10:03 AM

In what's already being called one of the greatest comebacks in the history of sports, the New England Patriots rallied in the second half of Super Bowl LI Sunday night, pushing the game into overtime and ultimately securing the victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Quarterback Tom Brady led the Patriots to a fifth Super Bowl victory in a game that boasted scores of records: Brady is now the first quarterback with five Super Bowl rings; Patriots coach Bill Belichick is the first NFL coach with five Super Bowl crowns; and Brady finished with the most attempts in Super Bowl history, 43 for 62.

Lady Gaga dazzled the crowd with her halftime performance, which included a medley of her hits and a jump off the roof of Houston's NRG Stadium to a backdrop of coordinated, lit-up drones.

Here are 13 images of the historic Super Bowl LI:
