Patriots' Super Bowl-winning TD ball on display after James White forgot to keep it

BY Cameron DaSilva • February 13, 2017

The New England Patriots capped off the largest comeback in Super Bowl history when James White crossed the goal line from 2 yards out in overtime. He slammed the ball to the turf and ran around the field, celebrating the Patriots’ fifth championship.

The only problem is he didn’t keep the ball as a piece of memorabilia. In fact, he had no idea what happened to it.

"I actually don't know what I did with it,” White said on the Dan Patrick Show, two days after the win. “I left it on the ground and started running. I wasn't thinking in that moment."

“I think that a lot of people spend a lot of time looking into the matter and what happened, and I’d rather not say anything that would cause any problems in the work that’s been done,” Kraft said. “One way or another, that jersey will be back.”
