This Falcons video following their Super Bowl heartbreak will give you chills

‘In brotherhood, we fall. In brotherhood, we trust. In brotherhood, we rise.’

“In brotherhood, we fall. In brotherhood, we trust. In brotherhood, we rise.”
“In brotherhood, we fall. In brotherhood, we trust. In brotherhood, we rise.”

HEARTBREAK.

It’s the main word that comes to mind when you think of the Atlanta Falcons’ Super Bowl 51.

25 points clear in the third quarter and looking like a major upset was inevitable, the Falcons were well on their way to winning their maiden Super Bowl.

Or so they, and most people for that matter, thought.

Then came the wrath of the New England Patriots and notably, Tom Brady. The Patriots pulled off an unimaginable and historic comeback to break the Falcons’ hearts and claim the prestigious title.

Almost a week on, the dust has settled but it will be long time before the hearts of players, management and of course, fans will mend.

Renowned for their ‘brotherhood’ videos, the Falcons and Derrick Moore have teamed up for one more. And it’s nothing short of motivational and inspiring.

“Our effort, our passion, our fight — we give it all. Frustratedly close, but ultimately short. Devastated,” Moore says.

“In brotherhood, we fall. In brotherhood, we trust. In brotherhood, we rise.”
