Quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were down by 25 points, but certainly were not out, and they fought their way to a 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, Sunday night.
Brady engineered an eight-play, 75-yard drive that running back James White finished off with a one-yard touchdown run around right end with 11:02 remaining in the overtime session.
Brady completed 43 of his 62 attempts for 466 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, which the Falcons returned 82 yards for a touchdown.
With the Patriots trailing by 19 points heading into the fourth quarter, Brady completed 16 of his 21 throws for 196 yards and one touchdown in the final 15 minutes of regulation. In the extra session, Brady completed five of his six throws for 50 yards.
Brady is the first quarterback in NFL history to win five Super Bowl titles.
