The Patriots and Falcons take the field in America’s biggest sporting event, the NFL Super Bowl 51, Monday February 6 LIVE and FREE on Seven.
This year’s game is set to take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas for what is sure to be yet another spectacular event, including half time entertainment from Lady Gaga.
The Falcons were first to secure their spot in the 2017 Super Bowl after defeating the Packers 44-21. The Falcons will be fighting for a win this year after losing their first and only other Super Bowl appearance to the Broncos in 1999. However, the competition will be tough, as the Patriots have a Super Bowl history of 4-4 and will not lose the strike rate without a fight.
Quarterbacks Tom Brady and Matt Ryan will go head to head in the clash. Brady has played in and won three Super Bowls and was awarded Super Bowl MVP each time. This will be Ryan’s first Super Bowl appearance which comes after setting an NFL record in October 2016 for most consecutive games with at least 200 passing yards with 46 straight games.
Seven will broadcast LIVE direct from Texas with Fox Sports’ Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on the call and Erin Andrews and Chris Myers reporting from the sidelines.
Lady Gaga, winner of six Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe and Academy Award nominee, will headline this year’s Halftime Show. The Super Bowl Halftime Show is the most watched musical event of the year with more than 116.5 million viewers in the U.S. alone last year.
