The Hall presented by Raytheon - Super Bowl Experience Exhibit

Now Open!


It arguably started with 6:04 left in the third quarter. The New England Patriots trailed the Atlanta Falcons, 28-3, in Super Bowl LI and faced a fourth down-and-three situation. Fail and it was almost certainly game, set, match – a disappointing blowout loss on the game’s biggest stage.


The Patriots had shown a bit of desperation, calling a rare double pass on third-and-three that fell incomplete and was well defended. So now quarterback Tom Brady and the offense faced the most important play of what would be many over the final 21 minutes.


Brady caught the snap, saw Julian Edelman double teamed in the middle of the field and hit Danny Amendola out to the left, who then broke a tackle and gained 17 yards and a first down.


“It was an option route out there to the slot against man coverage,” head coach Bill Belichick explained in an exclusive interview for The Hall’s “Anatomy of a Comeback” exhibit, which opened on Thursday, July 29. “It was a good throw, a good catch and obviously a big play for us.”


Of course, the big plays continued for New England. NFL Films caught linebacker Dont’a Hightower on the field imploring his teammates “No more mistakes. No more ‘my bads.’


Over those last 21 minutes, almost everything to go New England’s way and nearly everything did. Well, except for a botched onside kick and a missed extra point that forced the Patriots to convert a pair of two-point conversions to draw even. But that just reinforced Julian Edelman’s halftime point that the comeback would make a “hell of a story.”


It sure did. And The Hall is now uniquely telling that story within The Super Bowl Experience exhibit, which is presented by Raytheon. The new “Anatomy of a Comeback” area features 8 monitors – two 55-inch displays and six 22-inch mosaic tile-like displays. After conducting exclusive interviews with Belichick, Julian Edelman, James White, Devin McCourty and Trey Flowers, The Hall presents the comeback differently that what has aired on the NFL Network.
