The New England Patriots produced a defensive masterclass to beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 and equal Pittsburgh Steelers’ record of six Super Bowl titles.

The victory also gave Patriots quarterback Tom Brady a sixth Super Bowl ring – an outright record for an individual player, eclipsing the mark he shared with Charles Haley.

Bill Belichick – the most successful coach in Super Bowl history and now, at 66, the oldest man to win it – again came up with the perfect gameplan in Atlanta as the Patriots stifled a Rams offence that averaged 32.9 points per game in the regular season.

The defensive strength of both sides resulted in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl of all time, with the 16 total points scored comfortably below the previous record of 21, set as Miami defeated Washington 14-7 in 1973.

The score was just 3-0 until late in the third quarter through Stephen Gostkowski’s 42-yard field goal.
