However, there is one team in the game I will be rooting for to win.

Last week, I asked NewsDash reader, “Are you a fan of the Atlanta Falcons or are you pulling for the New England Patriots to win Super Bowl LI (51)?”

The majority of responding readers (61.6%) are rooting for the Falcons to win the Super Bowl, while nearly one-quarter (24.4%) chose the Patriots. Nearly 6% said they don’t care, 3.5% chose “either” and 4.6% indicated they don’t watch football.

In the comments left by readers, there was much distaste for the Patriots and Tom Brady, but also some kudos for them. As usual, some commented about looking forward to the commercials, although one reader expressed distaste for them as well. Editor’s Choice goes to the reader who said, “Regardless of who wins, hoping for a good competitive game!!” 

Thanks to everyone who responded to our survey!
