Super Bowl LI will showcase the NFL’s two top-rated quarterbacks when the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons meet at Houston’s NRG Stadium on Monday (12:30am WAT).
The 51st edition of the NFL’s championship game, which will be broadcast LIVE on Kwesé Sports 2, is expected to produce a high-scoring shootout between Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Falcons rival Matt Ryan.
Brady, 39, led the Patriots to a 13-3 record during the regular season and then a 36-17 victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC title game. He is a four-time Super Bowl champion making his seventh appearance in the Super Bowl. A New England victory will establish Brady as the only quarterback ever to win five championship rings.

Sunday will mark the first time that 31-year-old Ryan fires tight-spiral passes in the Super Bowl. He was near perfect in the NFC championship game as the Falcons (11-5) torched the Green Bay Packers 44-21.
Atlanta’s only previous visit to the Big Show came in a 34-19 reverse against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXXIII (1999), while this will be New England’s eighth such experience since losing their first championship game against the 1985 Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XX.
