James White Facts

  1. As of September 2020, he had jointly held, with Darren Sproles, the all-time NFL record for ‘Most Receptions in a Playoff Game’ (15). He had achieved the feat in the AFC (American Football Conference) divisional round playoff game following the 2018 season.
  2. In the 2016 NFL season, his breakthrough year for the New England Patriots, he was just 1 of 4 running backs to have recorded 500 or more receiving yards. He had finished the season with 60 receptions for 551 receiving yards and 5 receiving touchdowns, along with 39 carries for 166 rushing yards.
  3. During Super Bowl LI, he had set several new records including ‘Most Receptions in a Super Bowl Game’ (14), ‘Most Receiving Yards by a Running Back in a Super Bowl Game’ (139), and ‘Most Points in a Super Bowl Game’ (20). This was also the first time that a Super Bowl game had gone into overtime and James had become the first player ever to score in overtime in a Super Bowl game.
  4. He had also delivered the game-winning play in that match by rushing 2 yards into the end zone for a touchdown as the game ended in his team’s favor with a scoreline of 34–28. This made the New England Patriots the first team ever to win any post-season game, let alone a Super Bowl when trailing by more than 17 points after 3 quarters.
  5. Although many analysts and even players felt that James had deserved the ‘Super Bowl MVP award’ for that game, the trophy had gone to NFL legend Tom Brady. Tom, on his part, decided to give his MVP prize, a pickup truck, to James which the latter accepted gracefully.
