The New England Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl — tied for the most wins with the Pittsburgh Steelers — in the lowest scoring Super Bowl in league history. Both the Pats and Rams couldn’t seem to get their offense going, as the teams combined for 14 total punts. The Patriots finally pulled away late, with a fourth quarter rushing touchdown from Sony Michel, but the lack of offense made the game a dull game for neutral viewers.
