The Patriots quarterback brought New England all the way back from a second-half 25-point deficit, leading New England to an improbable 34-28 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
Leader of the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, Brady was named the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player once again, his fourth such honor. With the win, Brady is the winningest quarteback in Super Bowl history with five championships, breaking his boyhood hero Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw's record.
Brady bounced back from a poor first half, during which he threw his first postseason pick-six, to lead New England on four second-half scoring drives, including two TD marches in the fourth quarter. After the Patriots won the overtime coin toss, Brady led a game-winning, eight-play drive, capped by a one-yard James White score.
The Patriots legend finished with 466 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception on 43 completions.
