The New England Patriots will do their best today to make sure that they do not repeat their performance in their last Super Bowl, Super Bowl XLII.
At the same time, Patriot wide receiver Deion Branch will be doing his best to replicate his performance in his last Super Bowl—Super Bowl XXXIX—a performance that earned him the MVP award.
Almost six years ago, Branch couldn’t be covered by the vaunted Philadelphia Eagles defense. He ended the game with 11 receptions for 133 yards. Branch became the fourth receiver in NFL history to put up 100 yards in consecutive Super Bowls, joining John Stallworth, Jerry Rice and Antonio Freeman.
This is how another record-setting performance by Branch will lead to the Patriots' fourth Super Bowl Title.
