After getting past the Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs, the New England Patriots have secured their 3rd Super Bowl in the last 4 years. This comes as the 6th Super Bowl victory for Tom Brady, who personally holds more titles than most franchises do in their existence.
The Patriots are now tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins in NFL history. Pending the future of Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and other veterans, this appears to be a roster that may secure themselves another ring before the next chapter begins.
New England was labeled as an underdog throughout the season and finished with a road record of 3-5 in the regular season. Despite that, Brady has continued to defy the odds, totaling 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns, 11 interceptions with a completion percentage of 65.8.
In the first half, the game was a defensive battle, as both the Patriots and Rams offense could not get any points on the board for the most part. In the 2nd quarter, a Stephen Gostkowski field goal gave New England a 3-0 lead.
The second half was a similar tale, but a Greg Zuerlein field goal tied the game 3-3 in the 3rd quarter. With 7 minutes left in the 4th quarter, Sony Michel rushed for a TD to give the Patriots a 10-3 lead. Later in the quarter, Stephon Gilmore iced the game with an interception. Eventually, Gostkowski finished the game with a 2nd field goal to make the game 13-3.
With a performance of 10 catches for 141 receiving yards, Patriots WR Julian Edelman won the Super Bowl MVP award.
