Brady, playing on a sprained ankle suffered in the AFC championship game, had modest Super Bowl passing statistics. However, he didn't throw an interception, completed passes to seven receivers and was at his best when it counted the most--the nine-play, 53-yard drive that started with 1:21 left and set up Adam Vinatieri's game-winning 48-yard field goal.
