Lynn Swann. Santonio Holmes. David Tyree. Jermaine Kearse. And now Julian Edelman.

Edelman became the latest Super Bowl hero with a miracle catch late in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl 51, keeping a drive alive that led to the game-tying touchdown and 2-point conversion, helping the Patriots rally from a 28-3 deficit to force overtime and win 34-28.

You need to see the catch to believe it.

Tom Brady's second half and overtime were marvelous after a disastrous first half had New England trailing the Falcons 21-3. When it was all said and done, Brady was 43 of 62 for 466 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception – and a record setting fifth Super Bowl ring, breaking Terry Bradshaw's record of four Super Bowl rings for a quarterback.

James White scored three touchdowns, two on the ground and one in the air. He had 14 catches for 110 yards.

Atlanta is now 0-2 in the Super Bowl. They lost in 1999 after knocking the Vikings out of the NFC Championship game in overtime.
