Sony Michel scored the tie-breaking touchdown with 7 minutes left in the fourth quarter to help the Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII, the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in NFL history, on Sunday.
Michel’s 2-yard rush capped a five-play, 69-yard drive orchestrated by Tom Brady to break a 3-3 tie.
Julian Edelman totaled 10 catches for 141 yards, while Brady threw for 262 yards and an interception for his sixth championship in his career. Stephen Gostkowski‘s 41-yard field goal with 1:12 remaining made it a two-possession game.
Jared Goff threw for 174 yards, throwing an interception to Stephon Gilmore with 4:17 remaining in the fourth, as the Rams’ fast-paced offense was held without a touchdown. Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson combined for 57 rushing yards on 17 carries.
Los Angeles’ Johnny Hekker punted nine times, while the Patriots’ Ryan Allen punted five times.
Gostkowski kicked a 42-yard field goal with 10:29 remaining in the second quarter, but Greg Zuerlein tied it with a 53-yarder with 2:11 remaining in the third.
Prior to Sunday’s game, the lowest-scoring Super Bowl was Super Bowl VII, when the Dolphins beat the Redskins 14-7.
