Super Bowl XXXVIIITom Brady, Super Bowl XXXVIII MVP. On February 1, 2004, the AFC champion New England Patriots squared off against the NFC's Carolina Panthers at Reliant Stadium in Houston for Super Bowl XXXVIII. This was the first Super Bowl appearance for the Panthers. For the Patriots, it was a return engagement. Two years before, they had defeated the St. Louis Rams 20-17 on a 48 yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri as time ran out.

The first half, with aggressive defensive play and several missed scoring opportunities, ended with the New England Patriots up 14-10. After a scoreless third quarter, there was an explosion of offense from both teams. A touchdown pass from Panthers QB Jake Delhomme to Ricky Proehl and an extra point by John Kasay tied the score at 29-29 with 1:08 remaining. Helped by an out-of-bounds kickoff that placed the ball on the Patriots' 40 yard line, Brady then piloted a drive that moved New England into field goal range. With .04 left on the clock, Vinatieri split the uprights and the Patriots eked out a 32-29 victory.

In addition to standout performances by Brady and Vinatieri, the Patriots' got big contributions from their backs and receivers. Antowain Smith ran for 83 yards on 26 carries with one touchdown. Kevin Faulk had 42 yards on six carries. Deion Branch had ten receptions for 143 yards and a touchdown; Troy Brown had 76 yards on 8 receptions; David Givens, 69 yards on 5 catches.

For the second time in three years, New England quarterback Tom Brady was named The Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. A clutch big-game performer, here are Tom Brady's Super Bowl XXXVIII Stats.¹
