THE FLATS — Super Bowl LI has been set for Feb. 5, 2017 in Houston, Texas and it will include a pair of #ProJackets in Philip Wheeler and Shaq Mason who will lineup on the opposing sidelines for the 6:30 p.m. EST kickoff.

Wheeler and the Atlanta Falcons’ defense shut down the high-powered Green Bay Packers’ offense to pick up a 44-21 win in the NFC Championship on Sunday afternoon in the final game of the 25-year history of the Georgia Dome. 

On the other side of the field, Green Bay safety Morgan Burnett recorded seven tackles, five solo and two assisted, and a pass defended in the loss to the Falcons. 

The Patriots reached their ninth Super Bowl this season with a 36-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game. Mason helped the Patriots’ offense to its second straight 30-plus point game in the 2017 playoffs.
