ATLANTA (AP) — Defenses dominated what was supposed to be a super shootout, until Tom Brady led one classic drive to win the New England Patriots their record-tying sixth Super Bowl. Brady threw two perfect passes to Rob Gronkowski to set up rookie Sony Michel’s 2-yard score — the only touchdown in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever. That put New England up 10-3. A late field goal clinched the game 13-3. In a season when all sorts of offensive records were set, this Super Bowl rewrote the defensive record book. No Super Bowl had gone into the fourth quarter without a touchdown. This one did, tied 3-3 — even though these teams combined to average over 60 points a game. When the Patriots needed a score, Brady, the oldest winning quarterback in a Super Bowl at 41, completed four straight passes, including a pair covering 47 yards to Gronkowski. The second , on which the star tight end beat two defenders, ended at the Los Angeles 2, the only time either team was … [Read more...] about Recap: How the Patriots won their 6th Super Bowl title
What team has won the most super bowls
Mark Wiedmer Mark Wiedmer Photo by Staff File Photo/Times Free Press Nineteen years. When Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams kicks off tonight at 6:30 inside Atlanta's sparkling, (almost) new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, that's how long it will have been since the Big Peach hosted the world's most glamorous sporting event. Actually, it will have been 19 years and four days, but who's counting? Moreover, other than all those St. Louis Rams fans who may still warmly remember their 23-16 victory over the Tennessee Titans that icy night, who else would want to recall what might justifiably be remembered as one of the worst Super Bowl weekends ever, especially since it ended with the still-unsolved murders of two Ohio men outside a Buckhead nightclub? For whatever small portion of the sporting world may tie that game to Rams linebacker Mike Jones stopping Titans wide receiver Kevin Dyson 1 yard shy of the Georgia Dome end zone on the game's final … [Read more...] about Wiedmer: Don’t forget the tragedy that followed the last Super Bowl in Atlanta

Over the last 20 years we've been privileged to see some amazing Super Bowls by Will Brinson @WillBrinson 34s ago • 18 min read Every time you think you know which Super Bowls have been the best of all time, another one comes along to submit itself among the cream of the crop. From Patriots-Giants I to Patriots-Giants II to Patriots-Seahawks to Patriots-Falcons to Patriots-Eagles (notice a trend?), we've been lucky to see some incredible championship games in recent years. But what's the best Super Bowl of all-time? It seems like every other year we have to re-evaluate what we call No. 1.In the older days it wasn't like there weren't plenty of exciting comeback victories, it's just that teams couldn't light up the scoreboard as frequently as they can now. Well, we've come up with what we think is the definitive ranking of 52 Super Bowls, from worst to first. From Gladys Knight's anthem to who will score first to Maroon 5 to the Super Bowl … [Read more...] about 2019 Super Bowl: Ranking the 52 Super Bowls, including Patriots in top four spots for unforgettable finishes
Talk about a hangover. Eagles fans are stumbling along, halfway through the season, with waning good feelings about the defending Super Bowl champs being 3-4 to start the season. The latest FanPulse survey revealed that just 38 percent of Eagles fans were confident about the direction of the team right now. So what’s wrong with the Eagles? You can point to a few different things. Big plays are one problem. The offense was the 15th best at generating them last season. This year, they were 22nd prior to a Week 7 loss to the Panthers. On the other side of the ball, the defense was the 4h best at preventing big plays; they’re 28th this year, so far. As you can see, it’s just a lot of blah on both sides of the ball. Carson Wentz is getting better since his return in September, but he’s still having a little trouble closing out games. He was 23-for-27 with 281 in the first three quarters of last week’s loss, but he was 6-for-9 with 29 yards and only two … [Read more...] about NFL Panic Index: Just how bad is the Eagles’ Super Bowl hangover?
