New England Patriots RB James White didn’t win the Super Bowl MVP award after gaining 139 yards, scoring three touchdowns, and registering a Super Bowl record 20 points, but he was the MVP in the eyes of QB Tom Brady.
And for the second-straight Patriots Super Bowl championship, Brady has asked that the truck associated with winning MVP go to a different player. While CB Malcolm Butler earned the distinction after Super Bowl XLIX, White gets the honors after Super Bowl LI.
White joined late night talk show host Conan O’Brien to receive the prize. It’s a short 1:43 clip that’s worth a few laughs.
