Patriots, Brady win historic Super Bowl LIII

For the second time in three years and for the sixth time in the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick era, the New England Patriots are world champions, defeating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII.

In a season where offense was usually the story, this was a defensive struggle throughout, with neither offense able to get traction until a vintage Brady-to-Rob Gronkowski fade in the fourth quarter set up rookie RB Sony Michel for a short TD run to break a 3-3 deadlock. Patriots wideout Julian Edelman was the only statistical standout, logging 10 catches for 141 yards en route to Super Bowl LIII MVP.

That was all the scoring in Atlanta, as Rams QB Jared Goff threw an interception in the red zone with under six minutes to play, allowing the Patriots to put it away with another field goal. It will be a frustrating off-season for a Rams team that seemed like an offensive juggernaut for much of the season behind star names and stellar seasons from Goff, RB Todd Gurley, and more.

The result is yet another chapter in a story of dominance by a New England franchise that has now won more Vince Lombardi trophies than any other franchise but the Steelers, who they tie with six.
