One half of the Super Bowl 51 matchup is set. First, the Atlanta Falcons closed out the Georgia Dome with a dominating win, beating the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship, 44-21, for Atlanta’s first trip to the Super Bowl in 18 years.
The Falcons will play the New England Patriots, who beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship on Sunday in Foxborough.
Atlanta and New England will have to wait two weeks until they can play again. The fight for the Lombardi Trophy will take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on Sunday, Feb. 5. The game is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET.
New England opened as 3-point favorites over Atlanta.
This year, FOX gets the honors of televising the big game, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth once again. Viewers can stream it online at Fox Sports Go using their cable/satellite login info. Lady Gaga is scheduled to perform the halftime show, and you can expect FOX to have a lengthy pregame show leading up to kickoff time.
