Ranking the Super Bowl MVPs

It doesn't get better than the most iconic player in Super Bowl history leading his team back from a 28-3 deficit to deliver a 34-28 overtime victory for his fifth championship.

It was one of the great comebacks in sports history, orchestrated by a 39-year-old legend who had to conquer Father Time, not just the NFC champion Atlanta Falcons. Brady set Super Bowl passing records for yards (466) and attempts (62) while claiming postseason victory No. 25 as a starter.
