Atlanta Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan has more pressure on him to win this year's Super Bowl than Tom Brady, because he has garnered considerable recognition this year that he must now live up to. In fact, as Mark Maske writes in the Washington Post, in addition to Ryan being awarded the MVP award over Brady, Ryan is also the league's top-rated passer and led the highest-scoring offense.
The New England Patriots' Tom Brady is facing more pressure in this year's Super Bowl 51 than Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons. This will be Brady's 7th Super Bowl and his chance to lead his team to their 5th win. He is also trying to cement his legacy as the sport's greatest quaterback, argue ESPN commentators. He also has more to prove than Ryan because of his suspension at the beginning of the season.
