New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady was named most valuable player for Super Bowl LI after the Patriots erased a 25-point deficit en route to a stunning 34-28 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
Brady won his record fifth Super Bowl, and he clutched the Vince Lombardi Trophy in his hands after the game. They see the game in slow motion.
You can say what you want about Tom Brady, and there are many who will continue to vilify and diminish his remarkable achievements, no matter how dumb it sounds when holding his resume up against anyone else. Belichick's defense weathered the Atlanta storm, and when the game mattered the most, when the most crucial plays needed to be made, you knew how it was going down.
"There is never going to be a way to get over the loss", Falcons coach Dan Quinn told reporters.
"A lot has transpired in the last two years, " he said to a roar of Patriots fans, who made up the majority of the crowd of 70,807 at NRG Stadium. They set such a great example for me.
"He just willed us to another victory", said running back James White, who scored the Patriots' final two touchdowns. "I am pretty sure I caught it".
All season - including this game - Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has had a mortgage on breathtaking catches. White took a direct shotgun snap for a two-point conversion, and the Patriots trailed 28-20. Brady tallied 90 passing yards on that drive alone. "He's the leader, the general, the best ever and that is the end of the story".

The protest was organized by a group called NYU Anti-Fascists, who say McInnes is known for using "incendiary language". Gizmodo reported that McInnes barely made it into the NYU building. "Whose campus? Our campus", the protesters chanted.
Apparently, he called yesterday's win, which gave him a fifth Super Bowl ring, in this commercial which was likely produced before the 2016 season even began.
In a video shared on Twitter by National Football League writer Dan Hanzus, the Patriots quarterback, 39, is seen talking to his team's owner, Robert Kraft, in the locker room at Houston's NRG Stadium after Sunday night's win. Brady smiles. This will not affect the evening's celebration. That was after Roger Goodell was almost booed off the stage by Patriots fans, who never will forgive him for putting Brady through the 18-month nightmare that was Deflategate.
"I think the other team is fantastic though".
"They're all different. They're all special. But I want to say to our fans, our brilliant coaching staff, our incredible players, who are so spectacular, this is unequivocally the sweetest".
"That's exactly how we hadn't planned it", he laughed. Any glimmer of hope the drive provided seemingly was dashed by the time taken off the clock combined with the added difficulty of making up for a lost point.
