In Super Bowl LI, the New England Patriots were down 18 points at halftime. In the rematch, the team is on its way to take a 17-point lead into the locker rooms after two quarters. The Patriots currently lead the Atlanta Falcons 17-0 thanks to quarterback Tom Brady's second touchdown pass of the game.
On the receiving end of the pass: James White, who was a one-man wrecking ball against the Falcons in the Super Bowl.
The Patriots approached the second and goal attempt with their standard two-minute offense: an 11-personnel group with White as the lone running back. Originally aligning in the backfield next to the quarterback, White was matched up with a linebacker – advantage Patriots.
After a quick pump-fake Brady turned to White and delivered a perfectly placed pass to give New England a three-possession lead. As the Super Bowl has shown, though, leads can evaporate quickly.
