Defenses dominated what was supposed to be a super shootout until Tom Brady led one classic drive to win the New England Patriots their record-tying sixth Super Bowl.
Brady threw two perfect passes to Rob Gronkowski to set up rookie Sony Michel’s 2-yard score — the only touchdown in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever. That put New England up 10-3. A late field goal clinched the win over the Rams 13-3.
In a season in which all sorts of offensive records were set, this Super Bowl rewrote the defensive record book.
“Finally got a touchdown and the defense played the best game of the year,” Brady said
No Super Bowl had gone into the fourth quarter without a touchdown.
