Santana Moss is cousins with the Super Bowl's unsung hero

Santana Moss is cousins with the Super Bowl's unsung hero

When people look back on Super Bowl 51, it'll be miracle worker/possible Jedi Tom Brady's performance that most remember, and rightfully so. But in doing so, they may overlook the numbers put up by little known Patriots running back James White, who scored three touchdowns and broke a title game record for receptions.

One person who won't forget what White did, though, is ex-Redskins wideout Santana Moss — because him and the New England hero are related to one another.

"We watched the whole lead-up to the game, every show that you watched on NFL Network or ESPN, it talked about who's gonna be the guy, who's gonna be the guy tomorrow that we talk about other than Tom Brady or whoever, or Matt Ryan?" Moss told the Sports Junkies on CSN Monday morning. "And, you know, [it turned out to be] James White — and just to say, James White is a cousin of mine."

Moss — who is also cousins with Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson — said his mom and White's mom are first cousins, which makes him and White second cousins. Perhaps more interesting than that is the fact that he admitted he was still rooting for the Falcons, despite the family ties he had with the Patriots.

Yet, in the end, he is of course thrilled for White's newfound status as a Super Bowl stud.

"It was just great, man," Moss said. "It was unbelievable. Just to see him have that moment... He was a difference maker."

Whether Moss will still be as happy for White the next time they're at a family event and White shows off his new piece of jewelry to the ring-less receiver remains to be seen.

2018 NFL Power Rankings: Patriots prove they still got it, Rams remain top dog

In a thriller in Foxboro, the Patriots handed Kansas City its first loss of the season.

It wasn't pretty but the Rams slipped past the Broncos to remain the lone unbeaten in the NFL.

Remember when the Lions beat New England on Sunday Night Football and folks were ready to bury the Patriots? Yeah... how did that 'hot take' work out?

Will the real Redskins please stand up? A win over the Panthers moved the Skins up three spots. Give the Redskins this, they are consistently unpredictable.

The Ravens are on the rise and Marcus Mariota is happy the Titans won't have to play Baltimore again.

So the Cowboys have an offense now? Or does Jacksonville not have an elite defense anymore?

And the Bears let Brock Osweiler throw for 380 yards. Yes. You read that correct. 380 yards. 

How far will the Bears drop because of that dreadful defensive performance?
