Super Bowl 51 was one that will go down in the history books. The stars were out in force to witness a stunning New England Patriots comeback and a dazzling halftime show by Lady Gaga.
Devonta Freeman takes flight to register the first score of the night, putting Atlanta 7-0 up after 12 minutes. Atlanta would race into a 28-3 lead and seemed set for glory.
The halftime show was performed by Lady Gaga. Her dazzling set wowed the audience, but there was even greater drama to follow in Houston...
Down 28-3, the New England Patriots produced a rousing comeback. Three touchdowns and a field goal in regular time forced overtime for the first time in Super Bowl history.
The Patriots eventually prevail courtesy of a James White touchdown, but the star of the show is quarterback Tom Brady once again. He becomes the first player to win five Super Bowls.
The confetti flies as the Patriots are crowned Super Bowl winners again. Their 25-point comeback is the biggest in Super Bowl history, beating their own 10-point fightback in 2015.
Tom Brady's wife Gisele Bündchen and daughter Vivian Brady punch the air in delight. Brady further cemented his status as one of the greatest NFL players of all time.
The NFL season might be over, but some players can still face the heartache of being released. Sadly, for one of Germany's NFL stars that was the case on Tuesday.
