FOXBOROUGH — History. And revenge.
The Patriots trumped the Pittsburgh Steelers, 36-17, in the AFC Championship game Sunday night to advance to Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons in Houston Feb. 5. New England becomes the first NFL franchise to make it to nine Super Bowls, and Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have a chance to become the first coach and quarterback to win five.
But this New England matchup with Matt Ryan and the Falcons is much more than a shot at ring records and grid immortality.
Above all else, it will be a showdown with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
