Sports fans were expecting an exciting game between the Patriots and Rams. However, it turned out to be a boring match. Both teams only managed to score a field goal each in the first three quarters. In the end, the Patriots win Super Bowl LIII with the score of 13-3.
It is the sixth Super Bowl win for Coach Belichick and Tom Brady. Coincidentally, their dynasty started with a win against the Rams in 2001. However, the latest game between the two was not as thrilling as their first meeting that ended with the score of 20-17.
With their 13-3 record, the Rams were unstoppable most of the season according to sports news reports. However, the Patriots’ defense stopped the Rams on the big stage. While Brady had a forgettable performance with an interception and no TDs, the defensive team stepped up when the team needed them the most.
