New England Patriots Beat L.A. Rams For Sixth Super Bowl Win

 

The New England Patriots have won the Super Bowl in Atlanta for the sixth time, beating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in the lowest-scoring game of the Super Bowl's 53-year history. The Patriots have equaled Pittsburgh's six trophies.

42-year old New England quarterback Tom Brady won the Super Bowl for the sixth time and Bill Belichick has became the most successful coach in the history of American football.

Both teams brought up excellent defense lines , making it extremely difficult to score. The Patriots entered halftime with a mere 3-0 lead through a field goal. In the third quarter the Rams scored their first points of the game, also via field goal.

 

The decisive moments came in the 4th quarter when Brady threw a couple of superb passes to Rob Gronkowski to set up the only touchdown of the game with only 7 minutes left on the clock.

Julian Edelmann (New England) was named the most valuable player after making 10 catches for a total of 141 yards.
