The Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots were the first teams to play in a Super Bowl overtime Sunday night during the Patriots' 34-28 victory.

The Patriots tied the game, 28-28, late in the fourth quarter, overcoming a 25-point deficit in the second half to force the extra frame.

The Patriots won the coin toss to start off overtime and received the ball first before completing an eight-play, 75-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run by James White that won the title for New England.
