James White broke Super Bowl records for points, catches

Mike Florio and Stats debate on if James White deserved the Super Bowl MVP award over Tom Brady.

Overshadowed by Tom Brady’s magic on Sunday night was that Patriots running back James White delivered a Super Bowl MVP-worthy performance.

White set two new all-time Super Bowl records in the win over the Falcons, scoring a total of 20 points and catching 14 passes.

The 20 points came on three touchdowns and a two-point conversion, and the 14 catches yielded a game-high 110 receiving yards.

“It was just a great team effort,” White said after the game. “It’s really surreal. I was just living in the moment. I wasn’t paying attention to how many catches I had, how many yards I had. I just wanted to keep moving the chains no matter what it took.”

White did more than move the chains. He made Super Bowl history.
