Tom Brady Doesn't Consider Super Bowl LI One Of His Greatest Games

Tom Brady Doesn't Consider Super Bowl LI One Of His Greatest Games”

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, prior to Super Bowl LI teams leading by 25 or more points at any time in any National Football League game were 2,545-4-2 in the regular season and 102-2 in the postseason.

The comeback by the New England Patriots against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51 was nothing short of spectacular. It certainly goes down as the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history.

Tom Brady detailed the 25-point comeback to MMQB's Peter King.

The 39-year-old quarterback notably threw for 466 yards and two touchdowns en route to earning the game's MVP honors. With a big defensive stop the game was sent into the first ever Overtime in a Super Bowl. Brady said it was particularly helpful after audibling a fourth-quarter play designed for Danny Amendola. On the play, Brady acknowledged that he had a little help from offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels as he surveyed the Falcons defense.

Brady has said he put the jersey in a bag in his locker after the game, and it hasn't been seen since. After trading away Chandler Jones and then being down Tom Brady and Rob Ninkovich to start the season, people though going 2-2 for the 4 games without Brady would be good.

Super Bowl LI was Brady's seventh appearance, a record for a starting quarterback. Winning an NFL-record (for quarterbacks) fifth Super Bowl ring in such dramatic fashion took Brady from being in the conversation to being in the top tier of favorites.

Looking at those crunch-time performances in four of his five Super Bowl wins, combining them, you get this: 53-for-69 (76.8 percent), 565 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INTs.

"It's such a Peyton Manning-type throw", Brady told King.

"I always feel like I'm the same". Unless you actually take your jersey off and your trousers and stuff, and you put them in a bag that is secure, you don't know.

Most fans, pundits and Twitter experts believes the New England Patriots were toast by halftime (your's truly was in that group).

However the veteran said he felt no after-effects from what had been a bruising ordeal. The DB can't get to the ball faster than the receiver can. Same thing happened two years ago (in the Super Bowl against Seattle). A spokesman told DailyMail.com offers up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest in a felony case, but would not comment specifically on the Brady jersey search.

While the eight-play, 75-yard drive was not the single defining moment of Brady's career, it did perfectly display what makes Brady Brady.
