Patriot fans were losing hope as the Falcons held a strong lead of 28-3 by the end of the second quarter. The Atlanta Falcons maintained this lead throughout the majority of the game. However, in a twist that shocked football fans, the Patriots managed to tie the game at 28-28 by the 4th quarter. This tie occurred with only 45 seconds remaining in the game.
