    The New England Patriots will face off against the Atlanta Falcons, today in Super Bowl 51. Though this isn't the outcome I (or most others) would have expected it to be, I am super excited for it. Obviously the main showdown I am looking forward to is Tom Brady vs. Matt Ryan. It's always fun to think about it in a way as simple as that. QB vs. QB. I am going to give this win to Ryan and the Falcons. Even though the big dogs in Vegas are leaning much more towards a Patriots victory. Last checked, it was around 62% in favor of the Pats. Well it's game day! So we will find out soon!

    Here is all the info you need to know:

    When: Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017

    Time: Kickoff is 6:30 p.m. ET

    Teams: AFC champion New England Patriots vs. NFC champion Atlanta Falcons

    Where: NRG Stadium, Houston

    TV: Will be broadcasted on Fox

    Online Streaming: FOXSportsGo.com

    Another Great Part of the Super Bowl are the Awesome Commercials: Here's the best source to view all the ads.

    This is pretty clever on their part. They'll be able to feature the Super Bowl Champions, the score, any cool game replays, and whatever else goes along with that.

    On a related note, I saw that the NFL is releasing their new GoPro style helmet camera for the SB. It's mounted right on the players face grill. That should also be some awesome footage.

    The Australian Open was just an all around great tournament this year. There were two matchups that everyone wanted to see. And we absolutely got them. Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal, winning 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 in three hours and 38 minutes. Might I add, after dramatically turning round the fifth set break down. This is Federer's 18th Grand Slam title. That's quite amazing.

    Serena Williams beat out Venus Williams to win her 7th Australian Open championship. That is also extremely impressive. The match ended in a 6-4, 6-4 victory over her sister. This is Serena's 23rd Grand Slam title.

    Serena later said, "There's no way I could be at 23 without her. Thank you Venus for inspiring me to be the best player I can be."

    Congrats to the both of you! You deserve it.

    Also, besides who you want to win, who do you think will win? Which team would you put your bet on?

    I am 100% rooting for the Falcons to win the SB. I am quite tired of Brady, and very tired of Belichick. If I were betting on this matchup, I'd go for Atlanta to win. And I don't think it'll be quite as dramatic as the two championship games were. But I do see them winning by at least 2 TD's. I don't really have specifics to back that up with. But when you're dealing with two teams that dominated like they did, I'd say it'll come down to which team wants it more. That drive alone will be key to this SB.

    Falcons all the way!!

    He deserves it more than any other QB in the game right now.

    Curious why you think that? I think he is one of the most deserving. But so is Matt Ryan. Plus Rodgers has already been. Ryan has been really good to great for years now. Lots of bad losses in the playoffs for him. Glad he made it through this time.

    I thought that game was going to be a lot more competitive too.

    "One of the most deserving" is definitely a better way to put it. I guess me being a Packers fan sways my opinion towards Rodgers.

    The Atlanta Falcons are headed to the second Super Bowl appearance in their franchise history, after beating the Packers 44-21. I can honestly didn't see that coming whatsoever, nor did anyone else I know. My bet was for the Packers to win by a field goal.... But no. They were demolished by the Falcons.

    Falcons QB, Matt Ryan showed out with a total of 4 TD's thrown, including a 73 yard run by Julio Jones. They were just the better team tonight. No doubt about it. The Packers seemed to have not shown up at all. They were overtaken in almost every aspect through the majority of the game.

    Though Rodgers' numbers didn't look too bad, with a total of 234 yards and 3 TD's. But man, numbers are just numbers. I should also mention that I desperately wanted the Aaron Rodgers in the Super Bowl this year. He deserves it more than any other QB in the game right now.

    So now the Falcons will face off against either New England or Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 in Houston.

    This season for the 49ers' has been filled with plenty of drama. The most of which, Colin Kaepernick has been the recipient of. It all started when he was benched prior to the start of the season. Let's not forget, this is the same QB who replaced Alex smith (due to injury), and led the team to a Super Bowl. That made many 49ers' fans quite angry. The replacement that was chosen over Kap?.... Blaine Gabbert. It almost hurts to say that. Gabbert was one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL. Dare I say, right up there with Johnny Manziel. They can blame it on Kap's poor media coverage, or whatever. But I think we all know that there has been players with breathtakingly worse media coverage than him, and they still played.

    Other than that, there's the whole knealing during the National Anthem. This is a topic that I don't really like to discuss anymore. Not because I fell strongly one way or the other, but because other people do. Very few people seem to be open minded about it. But nonetheless, it cause a ridiculous amount of drama.

    The votes were tallied and awards given out for the 49ers' on Friday. The team voted on Kaepernick to receive the Len Eshmont Award. This award goes to the player who, "best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 49ers team."

    Crazy to see the Mavs go from best to worst in a little over a decade. :/
    I didn't even notice that. Kinda makes me a little sad, being a TX native. Funny how that goes.

    The Montreal Canadiens goaltender, Carey Price was pulled from play during the San Jose game after allowing 4 goals. First of all, Price is one of the best players in the entire league. In fact, he is already in the early running for league MVP. This one game isn't at all reflecting of what his normal game is like. Price allowed 4 goals in just 18 shots. That's pretty awful, though not unheard of.

    Price's body language was very telling towards the head coach, Michel Therrien when the call was made. His eyes were planted at the coach as he skated towards the bench. Not the most aggressive move he could have made, but he is normally a very calm and collective player. Though he just didn't agree with this decision.

    So here's my issue. There's too many people either blaming Price, or blaming the head coach, Michel Therrien for not pulling him sooner. There doesn't seem to be many people thinking clearly on the subject. This is a team issue. Price's job is to block the shots. Therrien's job is to direct each player, thus creating a winning team. So yes, it's easy to blame one or the other. But honestly, the entire team was off from the very start.

    The Canadiens lost to the Sharks 4-2. It's not the end of the world, guys. Just get it together and get ready for the next one. If history shows anything, it's that Price will be ready. I hope Therrien and the rest of the team will be as well.

    Here's a clip of the stare-down:
