The stage was set in Atlanta, two of the strongest offences in the league: the Rams and the Patriots. Before the big final, the Rams faced the number one seed, the Saints, in New Orleans. They won by three points in overtime with a 57-yard field goal by their kicker, Greg Zuerlein. The Patriots also won in another overtime thriller later that night; they played the number one offence, the Chiefs, in Kansas City. The game was close throughout all four quarters and before overtime, the Patriots won the coin flip. They immediately started marching downfield, then with ten minutes remaining in overtime the Patriots were able to score a touchdown and secure their spot to their 3rd Super bowl in a row.
The Patriots were the away team, giving them the right to call the coin flip. They chose heads, but it didn't go their way. The Rams won and decided that the Patriots would start with the ball. The game started with the Patriots going downfield until Cory Littleton intercepted Brady. The Rams got possession of the ball to only be able to travel 2 yards. The game stayed going back and forth for the entire 1st quarter without any scores.
At the beginning of 2nd quarter the Patriots, after Brady had thrown five complete passes out of six, the Patriots were able to score a field goal – they now led 3-0. For the rest of the 2nd quarter, there weren't any more scores. After the second half, Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi sang at the halftime show.
The 3rd quarter wasn't very different from the other two before. Both teams kept punting it to one another until, with 2:15 minutes remaining, the Rams kicker was able to kick a 52-yard field goal to even up the score, 3-3, entering the 4th and final quarter.
This was it, the final quarter, the most decisive moment in the game. With 10 minutes left the game was still tied and the tension inside the fans grew. Suddenly, Brady was able to find Rob Gronkowski, the Patriots star tight end, for 29 yards to set the ball up at the 2-yard line. The Patriots gave the ball to their trusty running back, Sony Michel, who ran the ball into the end zone. TOUCHDOWN PATRIOTS. The Patriots took the lead to 10-3 with seven minutes left. The Rams didn't lose a lot of time to go downfield, they got to the New England's 27 yard line, when Jared Goff tried to pull a miracle throw, and threw the ball to the Ram's wide receiver, Brandin Cooks, when unexpectedly Patriot's cornerback, Stephon Gilmore, intercepted the ball. Fans all over the world were shocked. There were only four minutes left in regulation and all the Patriots had to do was keep the ball, but that was not the case. They got to the 24-yard line when the Rams mighty defence made a huge stop that made the Patriots kick a field goal and give the Rams the possession with 1:12 remaining, and a score of 13-3. The Rams quickly ran downfield to the 30-yard line with only eight seconds left, the Rams had to score and get the possession back. They put the game into the hands of their kicker. He snapped the ball and kicked it for 48 yards but completely in the wrong direction to seal the victory for the Patriots.
The Patriots whole team trotted onto the field to celebrate the franchises 6th Superbowl win, and in a matter of time, Julian Edelman, the Patriots receiver, was named Superbowl MVP. Brady held his 6th Lombardi being the first player to win six Superbowl's and the Patriots are now tied with the Steelers for most Superbowl victories.
