The Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl, 13-3, against the Rams and it was not the game we expected. The Patriots dominated most of the game however the score was 0-0 at the end of the first half. The Patriots first drive was incredible they were running the ball all over the defense, until Tom Brady threw an interception. The Patriots defense was absolutely incredible from start to finish. They got pressure, stoped the run and did a really good job in coverage. The Patriots also had a chance to kick an early field goal but Gostkowski missed. He thencame back and made another field goal from 42 yards a few minutes later. The Patriots led the Rams 3-0 at the half. The Patriots had a mid fourth quarter touchdown run by Sony Michele. As the Rams tried to answer the Patriots, the Patriots ran a cornerback blitz which led to Goff throwing a pick to Stephon Gilmore. After another long drive Gostkowski kicked another field goal to give the Patriots a 13-3 win.
Tom Brady was 21/35 for 262 yards and an interception. Sony Michele led the Patriots in rushing with 18 carries for 94 yards and one touchdown. Edelman led the Patriots in receiving with 10 receptions and 141 yards, with 7 receptions for 93 yards in the first half. Stephon Gilmore had a huge interception late in the game.
Jared Goff was 19/38 for 229 yards and interception. Todd Gurley with 10 carries and 35 yards. Brandin Cooks led the Rams receivers with 8 catches and 120 yards.
This is the 6th Super Bowl for the Belichick/Brady/Kraft era, which ties the whole Pittsburgh Steelers franchise for the most Super Bowl wins in the NFL. Most likely Edelman will be the Super Bowl MVP but rookie running back Sony Michele has a strong case to win it as well.
