The fans who made it seem like a home game for the New England Patriots never lost hope, roaring at the smallest piece of good fortune even when all really did seem lost. Yes, they needed a holding call and an inexplicable play-calling decision by the Falcons to pull it off. Time and time again he found them and they delivered after the catch as the Patriots marched up and down the field in a furious rally unmatched in 50 previous Super Bowls.
Julian Edelman was the man to collect. The Patriots receiver made a catch for both the highlight reels and the history books Sunday - a once-in-a-lifetime grab that pushed New England's record-setting Super Bowl comeback into overdrive, and one every bit as amazing as what David Tyree of the Giants did nine years earlier to break all those Patriots' hearts. Edelman's catch was the highlight of New England's 91-yard drive that tied the game near the end of regulation on the way to a 34-28 overtime win over Atlanta.

HOUSTON (AP) -- The Latest on Super Bowl 51 (all times local):
Kurt Warner's unlikely rise from stocking shelves at a grocery store in his mid-20s to arena league star quarterback before making it to the NFL where he became a Super Bowl MVP was already an incredible rags-to-riches story. Warner's ability to continually overcome obstacles proved so impressive that 20th Century Fox bought the movie rights to his biography "All Things Possible". If the film comes to fruition, however, the script will need some tweaking as Warner was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2017 on Saturday in his third year of eligibility.
