Houston, TX, United States (4E Sports) - Tom Brady tossed two touchdown passes while James White ran for two crucial scores in regulation and overtime as the New England Patriots overcame a 25-point deficit en route to a 34-28 win over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday in Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium.

Brady completed 42 of 62 passes for two touchdowns and an interception to lead the Patriots to the biggest Super Bowl comeback in history and become the first quarterback to win five championship rings.

White caught a Super Bowl-record 14 passes for 110 yards and a score and added 29 yards on six rushes for the Patriots.

With the win, Bill Belichick also became the first coach to win five Super Bowl titles, breaking a tie with Pittsburgh's Chuck Noll.

"That was exactly the way we didn't plan it," said Brady, who earned the MVP in the first overtime in Super Bowl history.

"Everything we didn't want to do. But that was a great football game. ... We're all going to remember this for the rest of our life," added Brady, who broke a tie of four Super Bowl titles with Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana.

White caught a Super Bowl-record 14 passes for 110 yards and a score and added 29 yards on six rushes for the Patriots.

Matt Ryan completed 17 of 23 passes for 284 yards and two touchdowns, Devonta Freeman ran 11 times for 75 yards and a score while Robert Alford picked Brady's pass and returned it for an 82-yard score and a 21-0 lead for the Falcons.

In the third, Ryan found Tevin Coleman for a 6-yard touchdown pass for a 28-3 advantage before Brady connected with White for a 5-yard scoring strike that jumpstarted the Patriots' comeback.
