Patriots win Super Bowl 53

Super Bowl 53

The New England Patriots have done it once again. In their ninth Super Bowl victory in the last two decades, the Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams by a score of 13-3.

This was shockingly the lowest scoring Super Bowl game of all time. Per Matt Norlander of CBS Sports, the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever also produced the largest margin of victory in a Super Bowl Brady has played in his career so far.

The next closest game? Super Bowl VII in 1973, where the Miami Dolphins beat the Washington Redskins by a score of  14 to 7.

The game was close for the most part. The Patriots went into halftime with only a three-point lead. Stephen Gostkowski missed his first kick, and ever since that, the Rams just kept punting. Johnny Hecker punted nine times. At one point, he had more punts than Jared Goff had completions.

Sean McVay and company simply could not get past the Patriots defense. Bill Bellichek always seems to be more than anyone for Super Bowl matchups. And once again, he came out on top.

Brady had a poor game by his standards. He (only) threw for 262 yards on 21/35 passing with one interception. However, he was able to steer the offense into a victory. His running back Sony Michel ran for 94 yards with one touchdown, the one that sealed the game.

Julian Edelman earned himself the MVP honors. He had 10 receptions for 141 receiving yards. He’s paving his way for a first ballot Hall of Fame resume.

Goff only threw for 229 yards on 18/39 attempts. He was also sacked four times and threw one interception.
