At the conclusion of every Super Bowl, one man is named the game's Most Valuable Player.

Well, except for 1978.

That year, two Dallas defensive players — Randy White and Harvey Martin — shared the honor.

Quarterback Tom Brady has been named Super Bowl MVP a record five times. Quarterback Joe Montana won it three times, and a trio of signal-callers won it twice: Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw and Eli Manning.
