The Patriots win in the AFC Championship was certainly one to remember. With a game-winning, overtime touchdown run from Rex Burkhead, the Patriots punched their ticket to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII, and on Tuesday morning, the last two Patriots running backs to score game-winning touchdowns in a playoff game appeared on "Today."

With the team's third straight Super Bowl appearance, James White and Rex talked about the exciting win over Kansas City and what it means to play on football's biggest stage.

"It's always exciting. You work all year to get to this moment right here, so we just put in all the work possible to study up on your opponents so you can go play your best football game yet," James said.

Despite some light joking from the hosts about how the rest of the country (outside of New England, of course) isn't exactly rooting for the Patriots.

"I don't understand it," Rex said with a laugh.
