The New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 13-3 to win their 6th Super Bowl title yesterday at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
What a scoreline and what a snooze!
We love Touchdowns, but defenses dominated yesterday’s Super Bowl resulting in the lowest scoring Super Bowl in the NFL League’s history.
The Patriots missed their 1st Field Goal (FG) of 46 yards and we had to wait until the 2nd Quarter to see something go on the board – 3 points for the Patriots’. Stephen Gostkowski redeemed himself with a 42-yard FG. The Rams didn’t have an offensive answer until the 3rd Quarter with a FG. Then wake up everybody! Careful, don’t kick over that bowl of chips. Patriots scored a 2-yard TD in the 4th for a 10-3 lead and a late FG to clinch their 13-3 Super Bowl win.
Who won MVP?
Julian Edelman, Patriots’ wide receiver won the MVP award and he surely deserved it. He was one of the few players driving offense in a game overpowered by defense, catching 10 passes for 141 yards. His performance yesterday was the definition of, ‘Catch me if you can’.
Only Jerry Rice has more receiving yards than 32-year old Edelman in the NFL Playoffs.
Is Tom Brady going to retire?
There is no question about it now. Patriots’ QB, Tom Brady is definitely the greatest of all time (G.O.A.T.) in NFL History. With this 6th Super Bowl ring, he now breaks Charles Haley’s record for most Super Bowl wins by a player.
So is Brady satisfied and ready to call it quits? Not at all. Brady said, ‘When I suck, I’ll retire’, in an interview that aired Sunday on the NFL Network.
Kudos to Coach Belichick! He is in the NFL G.O.A.T club too!
Belichick out-coached the Chiefs in the AFC Championships to reach the Super Bowl after many doubted the Patriots this season. He then out-coached young Sean McVay of the Rams to win yesterday’s Super Bowl.
Belichick now ties George Halas and Curly Lambeau for the most NFL Championships won by a Head Coach.
What’s next for the NFL?!
The next Super Bowl is in MIAMI! The Patriots now tie the Steelers for the most Super Bowl titles. Can they get another next year?!
Have a great week!
