    After a nail-biting game and a Patriots' Super Bowl LI victory over the Falcons, Bostonians took to the streets to celebrate.

    The New England Patriots have wiped out a 28-3 deficit to force the first overtime in Super Bowl history against the Atlanta Falcons.
     
      Tom Brady threw a tying 2-point conversion pass to Danny Amendola after James White's 1-yard touchdown run to get the Patriots even at 28-all with 57 seconds remaining.
     
      The tying sequence was set up by a stunning catch from Julian Edelman, who somehow kept a tipped pass off the ground with a diving catch at the Atlanta 41.
     
      No team has ever come back from more than 10 points down in the Super Bowl. 

    Several areas, including Kenmore Square, were closed to traffic at the beginning of game's fourth quarter as a way to keep revelers safe.

    Many people congregated in Kenmore Square and the Boston Common.

    Boston Police said the celebration was peaceful, yet at least 2 people were transported to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
