In 2019, the New England Patriots ground their way to history, beating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, to post a record-equalling 6th NFL title. The two teams had played in Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 — when the Rams were still based in St Louis — with a young rookie quarterback named Tom Brady leading the Patriots to an upset victory.
Almost a generation later, at a defensive match that never reached any great heights, the Patriots dominated play and may well have won by many more. However, in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl of all time, New England failed sufficient, and got the work done to give now-veteran quarterback, Tom Brady his 6th championship, the most of any player in NFL history. Coach Bill Belichick made history, winning his 8th Super Bowl ring — two as a defensive coach for the New York Giants and six as the Patriots’ Head Coach.
Superbowl LIII was a mismatch in so many ways. At 32 and 24 respectively, Rams’ coach Sean McVay and quarterback Jared Goff were up against wily veterans in Belichick and Brady. The Rams duo spent the past two seasons heralding the arrival of a new age of soccer — where offense was seeking a setback to the old adage which teams ultimately must win championships with defence. At some point, the old adage prevailed.
The Patriots set their’past vs the future’ clash with an AFC Championship title success using a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the only other team that outplayed the Rams from the 2018-19 season. For their part, the Rams took out a controversial 26-23 overtime win over arguably the best team in the NFL in 2018-19, the New Orleans Saints, aided with a dubious call by the officers at the final minutes of regulation time.
