Over the past decade the
Patriots have had many outstanding performances not only in the regular season
but also in the playoffs but obviously the Super Bowl is where it truly counts and
here is my list of the top performances by a New England Patriot in the Super
Bowl. 6 . Deion Branch 2004- In the 2004 Super Bowl Deion
Branch led the Patriots with 10 receptions and 146 yds. helping Tom Brady to his
second Super Bowl MVP in three years 5.Tom Brady 2004- In a shootout
with the Carolina Panthers again led his team to victory earning his second MVP
award going 32-48 and 354 yds. with 3 touchdown passes. 4. Deion Branch
2005-
Tying a Super Bowl record with receptions for 133 yds. Branch earned
MVP honors in leading the New England Patriots to their third Super Bowl victory
in three years establishing them as the dynasty that they have become.
3.Adam Vinatieri 2004- Adam Vinatieri again proved why he will go down
as one of top clutch kickers of all time as he kicked his second game winning
field goal in as many Super Bowl games. 2. Tom Brady 2002- Although the
game was dominated by the Patriots defense shutting down of the "Greatest Show
on Turf " it will always be remembered by Tom Brady's drive at the end of the
game providing the Patriots with the chance to win.Brady
earned the first of two MVP awards based solely on this drive.1.Adam
Vinatieri 2002-
Adam Vinatieri's kicks in the playoffs against the Raiders
cemented hi reputation as big game kicker but the best was yet to come . Adam
Vinatieri's 48 yard kick with time running out not only won the 2002 Super Bowl
for the New England Patriots but would be the start of a dynasty that would see
the Patriots go to five more AFC championships and four more Super Bowls.
