Blank could be excused for his exuberance. Four plays later, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hit wide receiver Julian Edelman for a 10-yard touchdown to put New England ahead 33-9.
"I don't know much about them, although I'm a big fan of Julio Jones", Bennett said. "See you in Houston".
The New England Patriots will face the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bow LI and here are my initial thoughts.
In a way, Horford's lack of enthusiasm for the team that represents his longtime home base is a reflection of the Falcons' decades-long struggles to gin up ardent enthusiasm (apart from the team's previous Super Bowl season in 1998-99 and a few years of the Michael Vick era earlier this century).

Superstar Brady is closing in on more history. Brady then led his Patriots team to a 36-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers to clinch the AFC title. "It would be great to finish it off".

"We knew going in against Green Bay and going against Aaron (Rodgers) it's never over", Ryan said.
For Harmon, it's his second trip to the Super Bowl in four seasons in the NFL.
Alex Mack, another former Cleveland Brown, has had yet another Pro Bowl season. The Patriots are 3-point favourites and the over/under is a record 59 points at some sports books.
With the Patriots in command in the second half, they began a "Where is Roger?" chant that surely was heard all the way to the league offices.
