There were many stars who shone brightly during the New England Patriots’ historic comeback to win Super Bowl LI. James White led the team in receiving yards and touchdowns, LeGarrette Blount led in rushing, Julian Edelman made a game-saving catch and Tom Brady snagged his record-setting fourth Super Bowl MVP award.
But there was a much quieter hero on the field Sunday night. Dion Lewis, a young running back, had a humble but respectable 27 rushing yards on six carries. He did not score a touchdown, and left late in the game due to injury.
Dion Lewis has also never lost a game playing on the Patriots.
We repeat: He has never. Lost. A game.
