In the wake of Sunday’s Super Bowl win, Tom Brady’s jersey isn’t the only piece of Patriots’ memorabilia no one can find.

James White doesn’t know where the ball he used to score the game-winning touchdown is located.

The running back joked Tuesday on “The Dan Patrick Show” that he doesn’t know what happened to the ball he used for one of the most memorable scores in NFL history.

“I actually don’t know what I did with [the football],” he laughed when asked what happened after he scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime. “I left it on the ground and started running.”

He added: “I wasn’t thinking in that moment. I was too busy sprinting down the field.”

White did say that he was able to keep the football from the first of his three touchdowns.
