In 2019, the New England Patriots ground their way to history, beating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, to post a record-equalling 6th NFL title. The two teams had previously 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, in a defensive game which never reached any great heights, the Patriots dominated play and could well have won by a lot more. Nonetheless, in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl of all time, New England did sufficient, and got the job done to offer 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 coach for the New York Giants and six as the Patriots’ Head Coach. Superbowl LIII was a mismatch in so many ways. In 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 previous two seasons heralding the coming of a new era of football — where crime was seeking a blow to the old adage that teams finally must win championships . At some point, the old adage prevailed. The Patriots set their’past vs the future’ battle with the AFC Championship title victory using a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the only other team that outplayed the Rams in the 2018-19 year old. For his part, the Rams took a controversial 26-23 overtime win over arguably the best team in the NFL in 2018-19, the New Orleans Saints, aided with a doubtful call by the officials in the closing minutes of regulation time.
