After their crushing defeat at Super Bowl LII last year, the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 13-3, to become the Super Bowl LIII Champions. Taking place at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the game was a low scoring affair as Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald looked to shut down Tom Brady. Unfortunately, Brady and the Patriots offense eventually bested the Rams breaking the 3-3 tie in the fourth quarter and running with their lead.

Super Bowl LIII Recap
First Quarter: Despite early action from the Patriots, none of their efforts amounted into any points scored. Tom Brady’s first pass of the game was picked off by Corey Littleton following a tipped ball by Nickell Robey-Coleman. Following a three-and-out from the Rams, the Pats made their way back into Rams territory, ending in a failed running play and a missed kick from Stephen Gostkowski. The Rams looked to get things started but were ultimately unable before the end of the quarter.
Second Quarter: Looking to score the game’s first points, the Pats opened the quarter with a strong drive that resulted in Gostkowski kicking a 42-yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead. Throughout the quarter, the Rams settled for punts after struggling to move the ball down the field on several occasions.
