Brady and the Patriots are Super Bowl LIII Champions for the 6th time in franchise history, tied with the Steelers for the most in the NFL. In a season of offensive dominance, defense stepped up on both sides, and the Patriots pulled off a couple drives to win the game.
Both offenses cannot produce any yards or points. The Patriots with an interception and a missed 46 yard field goal keep the game scoreless. The Rams also struggle to get any offense rolling. End of 1st: 0-0
The Rams continue to send Punter Johnny Hekker onto the field, with 6 punts in the 1st half. New England finally scored the first points in the game with a 42 yard field goal from Gostkowski. Julian Edelman has a dominating first half with 7 receptions for 93 yards (Rams total offense with 58 yards). Defense winning on both sides of the field in the 1st half. End of 2nd: NE 3-0
The Rams and Patriots offensive woes continue and the defenses produce more punts. One Los Angeles drive allows Greg the Leg to nail a 53 yard field goal to tie the game up. Biggest setback for New England: Patrick Chung out with an arm injury, thinning the Patriots secondary. End of 3rd: 3-3
The Patriots breakthrough with a 69 yard drive ending on a 2 yard rushing touchdown from Sony Michel to open up the 4th. Los Angeles begins to move down the field and click, but the pressure gets to Goff and throws a pass right into the hands of New England defender Stephon Gilmore. And after the interception, Michel and Burkhead run for a couple first downs, winding the clock down. A 41 yard field goal that sneaks in adds a little more drama to a defensive showdown. Zuerlin pulls a 48 yard field goal wide left, giving Brady and the Pats their 6th ring and prove they are the best franchise in the NFL. Final – NE 13-3
Super Bowl LIII MVP: Julian Edelman – 10 Rec, 141 yards
This season was full of offense, touchdowns, and flashy plays, and we saw none of that in the final game of the season. Defense wins another Super Bowl for the Patriots and we await a new challenger to take down the New England empire.
