The Atlanta Falcons built a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl 51 that, historically, should have been impossible to overcome. To the glee of many Saints fans, the Falcons blew what would be the largest lost lead in Super Bowl history to lose in overtime to the New England Patriots. Social media erupted with the elation of Who Dat Nation following the collapse.
Both players and fans took to Twitter, Facebook and other outlets to express their happiness over the Falcons loss. Below are some of our favorites.
