The Patriots Just Barely Won the Super Bowl and Falcons Fans Are Losing Their S**t

All the crying Michael Jordan memes.

Published February 5, 2017

An epic fail and indisputable greatness.

That's the best way to describe the Atlanta Falcons blowing a 25-point lead in the second half and falling victim to Tom Brady's heroics, as the New England Patriots scored a shocking 34-28 overtime victory over ATL in Super Bowl LI in Houston last night. The Falcons' monumental collapse and the Patriots' unbelievable comeback secured New England's fifth Super Bowl win in its franchise's history. Brady's got a ring for the thumb now.

The mind-blowing rally, capped by James White's two-yard rushing TD to seal the Pats' victory, had social media instantly lit with hilarious reactions of disbelief and more.

Here are people's best reactions to the drama that unfolded. Atlanta is never going to be able to live this loss down.

  2. This feels all too familiar...

  28. This Is Too Much

    Combining the Michael Jordan crying meme with this twisted Atlanta show poster is foul. Sorry, ATL ... but this Falcons' loss is going to sting for a long time.
