The New England Patriots did it again, topping the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 to win Super Bowl 53. It was the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in the 53-year history of the game.
Tom Brady captured his record sixth NFL title by throwing for 262 yards, without a touchdown. The Patriots matched the Steelers for most Super Bowl wins, with six.
Julian Edelman caught 10 passes for 141 yards; he was the day’s only consistent offensive threat.
Brady engineered the game’s lone touchdown drive, a five-play, 69-yard march punctuated by an over-the-shoulder, 29-yard throw into the hands of tight end Rob Gronkowski.
On the next play, Sony Michel scored on a 2-yard plunge with 7 minutes to play for a 10-3 lead.
