The Patriots back-up running back only carried 6 times for 29 yards, but he scored two rushing touchdowns. Even more key however, was his unlikely 14 catches for 110 yards receiving, along with a further touchdown and 2-pt conversion. 20pts in a Super Bowl!

Julian Edelman

Forget Lynn Swann or David Tyree, the greatest catch in Super Bowl history now belongs to Julian Edelman, who pierced three Falcons defenders to turn a Brady interception into a never-give-up comeback-defining catch. Edelman had 5 catches for 87 yards.

A sparkplug for the Patriots, Amendola stepped up big-time during the fourth-quarter comeback, tallying 8 catches for 78 yards, including a key 20-yard catch, as well as scoring a touchdown and catching the two-point conversion that sent the game into overtime.

If any play symbolizes the extraordinary late momentum shift in Super Bowl 51, it might be Hightowers' strip-sack of Matt Ryan, with the Falcons up by 16 points with less than 9 minutes remaining, only needing 1 yard. The Pats recovered and quickly scored

After a disappointing rookie season, Mitchell stepped up in the big game, giving Brady a key target as the Patriots battled out of the early deficit. He caught 6 passes (more than lead receivers Hogan, Edelman, and tight end Bennett) for 70 yards.

Matt Patricia

Patricia's defense was praised all season, though some had doubts. Facing a prolific offense, the Pats were gashed early, but stepped up late, stopping Matt Ryan on key plays, forcing turnovers, and pushing the Falcons out of game-clinching field goal range.

Trey Flowers

Flowers was a monster on defense, with a game-changing 2 1/2 sacks to go with six tackles. His pass rush pressure stopped the Falcons from building an even bigger lead, and repeatedly shifted the momentum back to the Patriots favour in the late stages.

The ten-year veteran made one of the key plays of the Super Bowl, recovering Matt Ryan's fumble when the Falcons were leading by 16 with less than nine minutes remaining. He also recorded a half sack on another key play, and three tackles.
