Super Bowl Records Tumble For Patient Patriots

Super Bowl LIII has ushered in a new order of champions as the New England Patriots exercised patience and poise to stifle the Los Angeles Rams offence that had run rampant against all comers throughout  this campaign.

The Patriots won 13-3 in front of a huge crowd at Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz stadium.

The win equalled the six super bowls racked up by the Pittsburgh Steelers and propelled quarterback Tom Brady, 41, in to a league of his own as he orchestrated his sixth championship triumph as well, the most wins for any individual player.

“It was an unbelievable year, we fought through it more than anything,” said Brady. “The Rams played so well, their defence was great, they made it tough on every play.”

Oldest coach to triumph at a super bowl

Coach Bill Belichick also chalked up some milestones – as the oldest coach to win a super bowl at 66 years old  and as the winner of six super bowls in 18 years. That equals the record of the legendary George Halas and Curly Lambeau.

“It’s incredibly flattering, but really, for me, it’s about what the team accomplishes,” Belichick said.

“The most important thing for me is for our team to be able to hold that Lombardi Trophy and say that we were champions. It took everybody. It took the entire team and organization to put forth a superior and supreme effort to achieve that, and that’s really what it’s about.

Low score and male cheerleaders

“It’s about how all of us came together and kind of pulled our weight so the team could achieve its goals. It’s what we’re able to accomplish as a team that makes me most proud.”

Halas won six super bowls with the Chicago Bears between 1921 and 1963, while Lambeau took his titles between 1929 and 1944, making Belichick the first coach to match their exploits in 56 years.

Another record that pales into insignificance is the match was the lowest scoring super bowl of all time, beating the previous points-scored record of Miami Dolphins 14-7 win against Washington Redskins in 1973.

However, another first was male cheerleaders at a super bowl.
