It was a defensive game, but two catches by Rob Gronkowski set up running back Sony Michel’s touchdown in the fourth quarter to put New England up by seven. Stephen Gostkowski made a field goal to seal Brady’s sixth Super Bowl victory, the most by a quarterback in NFL history.

The Patriots defense made stop after stop including cornerback Stephen Gilmore’s intercepting Rams quarterback Jared Goff at the New England four yard line, which ultimately ended the game.

This was the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history, and the first time a Super Bowl game had gone to the fourth quarter without a touchdown.

In the first half alone, there were eight punts, a missed field goal, and an interception between the two teams. The Rams became the first team in Super Bowl history to punt on their first seven possessions.

Wide Receiver Julian Edelman took home the game’s most valuable player (MVP), as he caught ten catches for 141 yards.

This was not the most entertaining Super Bowl ever, but the Patriots once again took home the title and secured their sixth Super Bowl in the last 16 years.
