(FOX NEWS) – Tom Brady threw for a Super Bowl record 466 yards and two touchdowns en route to winning his fourth Super Bowl MVP award Sunday night as he led the New England Patriots back from a 28-3 second-half deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons, 34-28 in Super Bowl 51.

In the first Super Bowl to ever go to overtime, the Patriots scored 19 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of 2-point conversions, then marched down the field on the first possession of the extra period before James White crashed over the goal line from two yards out for the winning score.

Brady, the first quarterback with five Super Bowl rings and the first player to win four Super Bowl MVP awards, guided the Patriots (17-2) through a tiring Atlanta defense for fourth-quarter touchdowns on a 6-yard pass to Danny Amendola and a 1-yard run by White, which came with 57 seconds remaining in regulation. White ran for the first 2-pointer and Amendola did the deed with a reception on the second.

Brady, winning Super Bowl MVP for a record fourth-time, finished 43 for 62, the most attempts in Super Bowl history, for 466 yards, also a record, and two touchdowns.
