With people all over the world self-quarantining to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, one of the best ways for sports fans to keep busy is watching classic games.
Several networks have been replaying some of the best Super Bowl matchups, and on Sunday, FOX showed a game that New England Patriots fans will watch over and over again.

We're of course talking about Super Bowl LI, when the Patriots pulled off an epic comeback to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime after trailing 28-3 late in the third quarter. One of the heroes of that victory was Patriots running back James White.

Like many Patriots fans, White recently took some time to sit down and watch the instant classic.
"It was my first time actually watching the full game a couple of days ago when it was on. It was pretty cool to see, it was a hard-fought game," White said Thursday during a media conference call. "We all expended a lot of energy out there, it took everybody to win that one. It was a great comeback, a great team victory. All that conditioning in the offseason and all those practices, that’s made for those moments."
White gave an amazing performance in Super Bowl LI and probably would've been the game's MVP if not for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's heroics. He ran for 29 yards and one touchdown, while also tallying 14 receptions for 110 yards and two more touchdowns. White scored three of the Patriots' four touchdowns, including the game-winner in overtime. He also converted a two-point conversion.
White isn't the only Patriots player who recently watched Super Bowl LI. Brady did as well, and he was happy to share the experience on his Instagram story.
