It was the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. It was the first overtime game in Super Bowl history. And it was arguably the most exciting game in Super Bowl history. "As long as there are Super Bowls, they will talk about that one,” New England Patriots defensive end Chris Long, who won his first title, said after the game.
Him saying that is part of a recently released behind-the-scenes clip made by the Patriots. The video captured the moments immediately after the walk-off touchdown by running back James White. The bench running onto the field. Players and coaches celebrating together and embracing each other. Confetti flying around (something Tom Brady’s daughter happily notices at one point).
Sprinkled in are short statements by players. “Wow, what a game,” is defensive end Rob Ninkovich’s reaction. Rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell noted that “whatever happens in life, I will forever be a world champion.” Devin McCourty and Martellus Bennett are also part of the interviews.
