Ebner's Olympic adventure leads to Super Bowl (AFP)

New England Patriots safety Nate Ebner may have missed out on an Olympic medal in Rio de Janeiro six months ago. The 28-year-old safety and special teams player will cap a whirlwind journey on Sunday when he lines up for the Patriots against the Atlanta Falcons, just over a year after switching back to rugby to pursue his Olympic dream. Ebner, who grew up playing rugby, representing the United States at various youth levels, earned a place on the USA sevens squad in Rio, where the Americans came within a whisker of upsetting Fiji before being eliminated from medal contention in the group stage.
