The New England Patriots are the Super Bowl LIII Champions. This year’s Super Bowl, while some considered boring, was a historic win for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick as it was their 6th Super Bowl win together.
This was the lowest final score in Super Bowl history. The Patriots defense leads the way for a Patriots 10-3 victory. Patriots’ wide receiver Julian Edelman won the Super Bowl MVP from the fan-voted contest. Edelman went from being suspended the first 4 games of the season for PED use to winning MVP. The same such use would cost you an entire season of 160 games if it was Major League Baseball.
This fact is extremely significant to question how quickly he recovered from his torn ACL last season and how he’s able to beat defenders this year who is 5 inches taller and 50-100 pounds heavier than him without getting hurt again. Edelman shouldn’t have played in this game but he did and with that, he finished with 10 receptions and 141 yards.
The Rams while having still a great defensive game, were nowhere to be found on the offensive side of the ball. While quarterback Jared Goff took most of the blame off of his teammates and put it on himself, the Rams offensive shortcomings really weren’t his fault.
Goff was sacked 4 times with a total loss of 31 yards. His line faulted and have no room for the running backs to show up. Running back Todd Gurley III was virtually a ghost. With 10 rushes, he only ran for 35 yards. The highlights for the Rams offense were wide receivers, Brandon Cooks and Robert Woods. Cooks had 8 receptions for 120 yards and Woods had 5 receptions for 70 yards.
While the game was considered boring and Maroon 5’s halftime performance and commercials were underwhelming, we at east got an Avengers trailer and a silly Bud Light and Game of Thrones crossover. And how about that HEB commercial!
The Patriots solidified themselves as one of the greatest dynasties ever in sports history and are now your Super Bowl Champions. Congratulations to the New England Patriots and their fans.
