The New England Patriots were victorious in last night’s Super Bowl in Atlanta defeating the LA Rams by 13-3 in what was the lowest scoring game in the event’s history.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady etched his name in sporting folklore as he picked up his sixth Super Bowl ring becoming the first player to ever achieve that feat, 17 years after winning his first in 2002.
Defence dominated the affair with the first quarter finishing scoreless, before the Patriots took the lead with a field goal in the second.
The Rams levelled things up in the third through their kicker Greg Zuerlein, with neither side able to find the breakthrough required to edge ahead in the game.
It wasn’t until the fourth and final quarter that the Mercedes-Benz Stadium was treated to a touchdown and it was thanks in no small part to the veteran Brady finally finding his groove in the game.
After three attempts he floated an inch-perfect pass to Rob Gronkowski, two yards from the end zone, the first time in the game either side had made it to 1st and goal.
In the next play, Brady handed the ball off to rookie running back Sony Michel who grabbed the crucial score.

The Patriots touchdown seemed to wake the Rams and their quarterback Jared Goff up and it looked as though they would hit back with a score of their own before the 24 year old was picked off by corner Stephon Gilmore to leave the Patriots in sight of victory.
Bill Belichick’s side then sealed the win with Stephen Gostkowski’s second field goal with 1min 16sec remaining in the game.
The Patriots’ triumph saw them join the Pittsburgh Steelers with six Super Bowl titles, the most by any franchise.
Patriots receiver Julian Edelman was named Super Bowl MVP as Bill Belichick became the oldest coach at 66 to win a Vince Lombardi trophy.
