Patriots ride James White to historic comeback in Super Bowl LI
HOUSTON, TX —
Now if you’re like me, sitting on your couch on Sunday evening watching Super Bowl 51, you would have thought that the game was well within hand with Atlanta ahead 28-3 with about three minutes to go in the third quarter.
But in the blink of an eye everything changed. New England scored 31 unanswered points to claim the franchises fifth title in a 34-28 overtime win over the Falcons. Tom Brady threw for a Super Bowl record 466-yards to earn MVP honors over teammate James White who to set a Super Bowl record with his 14 receptions for 110-yards and three TD’s.
The 25-point comeback for New England was the largest in NFL postseason history. The Pats open as the odds on favorite to repeat as world champs next year. The Seattle Seahawks have the fourth-best odds at 12:1.
