The Atlanta Falcons were on the edge of glory at Super Bowl LI, only to blow their 28-3 lead and fall to the New England Patriots in overtime. While there are a million reasons the Falcons failed to hold onto such a big lead, one player is blaming Lady Gaga’s halftime performance.
Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu said on NFL Network’s Friday “Good Morning Football” broadcast that the 40-minute layoff during halftime, which is usually only 15 minutes, “definitely” had a negative effect on his team.
“Usually, halftime is only like 15 minutes, and when you’re not on the field for like an hour, it’s just like going to work out, like a great workout, and you go sit on the couch for an hour and then try to start working out again,” Sanu said.
“I don’t know if you can simulate something like that,” he added.
