Through three quarters, the Atlanta Falcons looked like Super Bowl winners.
Then, a late-game collapse and a stunning comeback by the New England Patriots changed all of that.
Of course, things changed rapidly for Falcons owner Arthur Blank during those nearly 30 minutes of game time.
The Falcons went up 28-3 in the third quarter, and Blank could be seen dancing in a suite. By the time overtime hit, with the Patriots marching down the field for an inevitable score, his mood had changed drastically.
The pictures say it all: The Falcons had a championship and the Patriots ripped it from their hands.
Arthur Blank and wife, #Falcons up 28-3.
