White also had a Super Bowl record 14 receptions for 110 yards - the most ever by a running back in the title game.
He said he was cheering for the Patriots because he was not an original New Yorker and because they were the "best professional sports team in North America in the last 10 years". "Once I get home to my family and everything, it'll be a great joy to be around them".
Victory wasn't assured earlier in the game, and Chris and his Snowpiercer co-star and Atlanta Falcons fan, Octavia Spencer, engaged in some friendly banter on Twitter when her team had an early lead.
Actually, this one took 63:58 of game time, with the overage accounted for during the Patriots' eight play, 75-yard drive that ended with James White's game-ending, 2-yard touchdown run. It's lagged a bit of late, though. To see this for yourself, simply go to Bing.com and do a search for "who will win the super bowl".
He was the league's Most Valuable Player, but that means little to Matt Ryan right now.
"There is no intellectual backing for this sort of thing, except that it works", Wall Street analyst Robert H. Stovall told the Wall Street Journal in 2016.
The comparison between these two franchise's is stark, with New England appearing in nine Super Bowls and winning four, while Atlanta is playing in just their second during their 51-year history. Give the Patriots, Bill Belichick, and Tom Brady credit, though.
That gave the Falcons a first down at the New England 22 with less than five minutes left.
On first-and-10 from the New England 36, Brady fired deep down the middle for Edelman, who was well covered.
"That was exactly the way we didn't plan it", he said.
The Falcons' play-calling was immediately questioned. "We've worked really hard to get to this point and the attention should be on this game. We just made a few more plays than them".
After Jones' final reception, the Falcons lost a yard on a run, former Columbia High School star Trey Flowers sacked Ryan for a 12-yard loss and an offensive holding penalty nullified a 9-yard completion. The Falcons could probably have put the game away with a simple handoff up the middle midway through the fourth quarter. "We kept going to him, that speaks for itself". Brady is operating under a two-year $41 million contract and now ranks 18th among active quarterbacks in salary for the 2016 season.
The Patriots had come screaming back into the contest when they scored a touchdown off the back of a strip sack by Donte Hightower on Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. "So all of you haters need to shut up and just own up to it that he is the greatest".
Of course, in typical Bayless fashion, there's no acknowledgment of the previous miss when the Patriots knotted the game at 28, and in fact, he pivots to Patriots boosterism, as though he knew it all along.
This team is seemingly made of steel - or whatever it is those five Super Bowl trophies are made of.
