The New England Patriots won their fifth Super Bowl on Sunday night, completing a 25-point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons with a James White 2-yard touchdown run in overtime.
By NFL overtime rules, the Patriots’ touchdown meant Atlanta didn’t get a counter-possession, and the game was over.
The game will go down as one of the best Super Bowls in the event’s 51-year history. New England fell behind 21-0 and then 28-3 by the third quarter, looking more disheveled than ever. Atlanta seemed primed to waltz to a win.
