Running back Sony Michel waltzed into the end zone on the ensuing play, putting New England on top 10-3 with 7:00 remaining in the fourth quarter. New England would beat the Rams 13-3 to win their sixth Super Bowl in franchise history.

It’s also the sixth title for Tom Brady, the most in NFL history by an individual player. Brady went 21-of-35 for 262 yards and an interception.

Julian Edelman was named Super Bowl MVP after a game-high 10 catch, 141 yard performance.

Michel, a rookie, rushed for 94 yards and the go-ahead touchdown. Rex Burkhead rushed for 43 yards.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff was sacked four times, and completed less than 50-percent of his passes.
