New England Patriots make Super Bowl history

The Patriots are now tied for the most wins in history, a feat achieved in only 18 seasons. Quarterback Tom Brady now has the most wins in history for a single player.

The New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 to win the Super Bowl on Sunday. New England has now tied the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most titles in history, each with six wins.

For the Patriots, all six have come since 2001. The Steelers took 35 seasons to reach this milestone.

Quarterback Tom Brady has now beaten former Dallas Cowboy and San Francisco 49er Charles Haley for the most Super Bowl wins for a player. Coach Bill Belichick is now tied for the most NFL championships by a head coach. Both are the oldest to win in their respective positions.

"It was an unbelievable year," Brady told US broadcaster CBS after the game, held at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Atlanta.

"It's unbelievable to win this game… We've been this far and lost, which is really tough. I wish we had played a little better on offense, but we won and it's unbelievable.

Big on defense, short on action

A highly defensive game, Super Bowl LIII (53) was the lowest-scoring in history. The Los Angeles Rams were the second team in NFL history not to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl, the first since the 1971 Miami Dolphins. On social media, many complained of the lack of action.

The game's sole touchdown came with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter. Brady completed four consecutive passes, setting up running back Sony Michel for a 2-yard run into the end zone.

Most of action was largely led by the placekickers, punters, and its defensive play-callers, Wade Phillips for the Rams and Brian Flores for the Patriots.

The Most Valuable Player award when to Patriots Wide Receiver Julian Edelman, who caught ten passes for 141 yards.

Super Bowl 53's halftime show was performed by rock band Maroon 5, who were then joined by rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi. Many fans took to Twitter to complain that the show lacked the flash and fun of other performers in recent years, such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga.
