Somehow, the New York Giants are still the only team to defeat the Tom Brady/Bill Belichick New England Patriots in a Super Bowl. The Patriots erased a 25-point third-quarter Sunday night to win Super Bowl LI, defeating the Atlanta Falcons in overtime, 34-28.

The game marked the first time a Super Bowl has gone to overtime. James White’s 2-yard touchdown run capped the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.

Brady has now won five Super Bowl titles, most of any quarterback in NFL history. He has lost two Super Bowls, both of those to Eli Manning and the Giants.

Brady completed 43-of-62 passes for 466 yards and two touchdowns.
