New England linebacker Tedy Bruschi celebrates after intercepting a pass during the fourth quarter of the Patriots' 24-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Jacksonville, Fla. The Patriots won the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons thanks, in part, to a stellar effort by wide receiver Deion Branch, who caught a Super Bowl record 11 passes en route to MVP honors. With the game tied, 14-14, heading into the fourth quarter, a two-yard touchdown run coupled with an Adam Viniteri field goal gave the Patriots the title.
