Tom Brady remains one of the top quarterbacks in the game.

Despite a terrible defense, the New England Patriots were within a few minutes of capturing their fourth Super Bowl title of the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady era. 

Much of the reason the Patriots were even in Super Bowl XLVI rests on the right shoulder of Brady. 

The seven-time Pro Bowler had perhaps the second-best season of his career, throwing for a career-high 5,235 yards and 39 touchdowns. 

However, as Brady gets closer to 40, it'll take more than a stellar season by No. 12 to get the Patriots back in the big dance. 

While Wes Welker, Vince Wilfork and Rob Gronkowski are household names, the Patriots need contributions from more than just their stars.

Let's take a look at the five Patriots other than Brady who will be key to another Super Bowl run.
