Countdown to the Big Game: Day 3

(KFVS) - Number 3 in our countdown is a former SEMO offensive lineman.

Dan Connolly signed as an undrafted free agent with Jacksonville in 2005, but he made his mark with New England from 2007-14.

He earned three AFC Championships and one Super Bowl ring blocking for Tom Brady.

In 2010, Connolly set the record for the longest return kick off by an offensive lineman, returning one 71 yards against Green Bay.

He was also a Patriots team captain.
