Mohamed Sanu stated the long length of the halftime show played a part in Atlanta ultimately losing the game. Teams on average are off the field for fifteen minutes during halftime, but Super Bowl halftimes are considerably longer.
Unlike the Falcons it appears Bill Belichick actually incorporated the length of the show into the team's practices. The first quarter of Super Bowl LI was a scoreless defensive match with each team punting twice. The longest play from scrimmage was a yard carry by Falcons running back Devonta Freeman , which did not lead to any points, though it would be the longest run of the game for either team.

Ryan started the drive with a yard completion to Taylor Gabriel , then completed a pass to Jones for an yard gain. On 3rd-and-9, he threw a yard touchdown pass to tight end Austin Hooper , giving the Falcons a 14—0 lead. It was the largest deficit Brady had ever faced in his seven Super Bowl appearances, and it would soon get larger.
However, on 3rd-and-6, Brady threw a pass that was intercepted by Alford and returned 82 yards for a touchdown, increasing Atlanta's lead to 21—0. It was the first time in his career that Brady had thrown a pick-six in his 33 postseason games,  and Alford's 82 yard return was the second longest interception return in Super Bowl history.

New England had an early third quarter scoring opportunity when Edelman returned a punt 26 yards to the Patriots' yard line, but they could not gain a first down on the drive. Following the Patriots' punt, the Falcons started their drive on their own yard line, Ryan completed two long passes to wide receiver Taylor Gabriel for gains of 17 and 35 yards to bring the ball to the New England yard line.

Three subsequent carries by Blount moved the ball 15 yards to the 5-yard line, and then Brady threw the ball to White for a touchdown, making the score 28—9 after Gostkowski's extra point attempt hit the right goalpost.
New England then attempted an onside kick , but the ball was recovered by Falcons linebacker LaRoy Reynolds , and a penalty against Gostkowski for touching the ball before it went ten yards gave Atlanta even better field position.
Ryan completed a 9-yard pass to Hooper to the Patriots yard-line, but on the next play, a holding penalty on Atlanta offensive lineman Jake Matthews pushed the team back ten yards. Then after an incompletion, Trey Flowers and Kyle Van Noy shared a sack on Ryan that forced the Falcons to punt on the first play of the fourth quarter. Matt Bosher 's yard punt pinned the Patriots back on their own yard line. Brady led the next drive down the field, completing three passes to wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell for 40 yards and one to Bennett for 25 to bring the ball to the Falcons 7-yard line.
However, Brady was sacked twice by defensive tackle Grady Jarrett over the next three plays, and the Patriots ended up having to settle for Gostkowski's yard field goal that cut their deficit to two scores, 28—12, with less than 10 minutes left in the game.
Atlanta had burned two of their three time outs on defense and equipment malfunction. On the third play of Atlanta's ensuing drive, linebacker Dont'a Hightower sacked Ryan as he was winding up for a pass, resulting in a fumble that was recovered by defensive tackle Alan Branch on the Falcons yard line. New England soon cashed in their scoring opportunity, with Brady throwing a 6-yard touchdown pass to Amendola.

Ryan then completed a 9-yard pass to Mohamed Sanu on 3rd-and 23, but this was negated by a holding penalty on Matthews. Now out of field goal range and faced with 3rd-and from the New England yard line, Ryan threw an incomplete pass, and the team was left with no choice but to punt the ball to New England. Bosher's yard kick gave the Patriots the ball on their own 9-yard line with 3: After two incompletions, Brady picked up a first down with a yard pass to Chris Hogan.
After an yard pass to Mitchell, Brady threw a pass that was nearly intercepted by Alford. Instead, he batted the ball in the air, and it fell into the arms of Edelman, who made a diving catch and just barely managed to get his hands under the ball before it hit the ground, picking up 23 yards.
Atlanta challenged the catch, but the referees confirmed the call on the field and Atlanta lost their final time out. Brady's next pass to Amendola gained 20 yards to the Falcons yard line as the clock ran down below the two-minute warning. Two more passes to White gained 20 yards and gave New England a first down at the 1-yard line.
With 58 seconds left, White scored on a 1-yard touchdown run, and Brady completed a 2-point conversion pass to Amendola, tying the score at Atlanta started their drive deep in their own end with just under a minute and zero time outs. The Falcons failed to get in range to score a possible game-winning field goal and punted, with the Patriots fair catching the ball at their own yard line.

On second down, White took a pitch and ran the ball right.
