Matt Ryan Thanks Falcons Fans For Support Following Super Bowl LI Loss

by

The Atlanta Falcons were well on their way to hoisting their first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history.

With a 25-point lead late in the third quarter, it seemed as though Super Bowl LI was all but wrapped up. That was until the New England Patriots pulled off a miraculous comeback, en route to a 34-28 overtime victory.

Although they squandered a tremendous opportunity, the Falcons had quite the season. They won the NFC South, employed the highest-scoring offense in the league and, of course, made a Super Bowl run.

Atlanta also had its first NFL MVP in quarterback Matt Ryan, who had a respectable performance in Super Bowl LI despite the loss. On Thursday, Ryan took to Twitter to thank Falcons fans for their continued support throughout the season.

It will be a long offseason for the Falcons, to say the least. But with a strong core of young, talented players, expect them to be right back in the mix next season.
