Pats, Brady win 6th title

Ho hum, the New England Patriots are Super Bowl champions - again.

Seventeen years to the day from when they beat the St. Louis Rams for their first championship, the Pats won their sixth, beating the LA Rams 13-3.

Tom Brady became the first player in NFL history to win a sixth Super Bowl, and head coach Bill Belichick became the oldest winning coach at age 66.

New England broke a 3-3 tie with seven minutes left in the game when rookie Sony Michel scored on a two-yard run. The touchdown culminated a five-play, 69-yard drive.

The big play was a 29-year strike to tight end Rob Gronkowski, who took the ball to the two yard line. Michel scored on the next play.

The Rams were unable to move the ball consistently against a stingy Pats defence. They picked up only two first downs and 57 total yards in the opening half.

Prior to Michel's game winning touchdown, the game had belonged to the kickers. Steve Gostkowski his from 42 yards out in the second quarter to put the Pats on top before Greg Zuerlein evened the score with a 53-yarder in the third.

The game eclipsed Super Bowl VII as the lowest scoring in Super Bowl history. It was also the first devoid of touchdowns from the first three quarters.

Receiver Julian Edelman with 10 catches for 141 yards was named the MVP.
