Patriots Beat Rams 13-3 to Claim Sixth Super Bowl Victory

The New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Atlanta on Sunday night, pulling out a last-minute offensive in the fourth quarter after the third ended with a 3-3 tie—and no touchdowns. Super Bowl LIII was the first ever Super Bowl without a touchdown in the first three quarters. But the Patriots turned things around in the final minutes to give the team their sixth Super Bowl win. With just seven minutes remaining in the fourth, the Patriots’ Sony Michel finally scored the first touchdown of the game, gaining a 10-3 lead over the Rams. Tom Brady also ratcheted up the team’s offense with four consecutive passes leading up to Michel’s touchdown, and Stephen Gostkowski brought it all home at the end with a 41-yard field goal that ushered the team to victory. The game was the Patriots’ third consecutive Super Bowl, and their fourth in the past five years.
