Take a look back at how the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams to win Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.


Super Bowl LIII - New England Patriots 13-3 LA Rams


PATRIOTS WIN!


FIELD GOAL! PATRIOTS 13-3 RAMS

Gostkowski boots New England two scores ahead and that's surely it now for LA...


INTERCEPTION! PATRIOTS 10-3 RAMS

Just as Jared Goff was getting something moving, his pass towards the end zone was intercepted by Stephon Gilmore just short of the goal line to strike a huge dagger into Rams' hopes of a revival.


TOUCHDOWN! PATRIOTS 10-3 RAMS

We thought we'd never see one, but Tom Brady finally gets going with connections to Rob Gronkowski setting up a close range dive over for rookie Sony Michel to finally find the end zone!


END OF THIRD - PATRIOTS 3-3 RAMS

Well we've got two Super Bowl records tonight, perhaps not the ones we wanted but we've got the longest punt in the big game and now the first time in Super Bowl history we've gone three quarters without seeing a touchdown. Let's hope we see one soon!


FIELD GOAL! (PATRIOTS 3-3 RAMS)

We have points people! And it was probably always going to be a field goal but it could've been a TD had it not been for some amazing defending from Jason McCourty a couple of plays earlier.


CHUNG BLOW FOR PATS

Patrick Chung didn't finish the last Super Bowl through injury and he's out again, could be a big blow for the Patriots.


HALF TIME - PATRIOTS 3-0 RAMS

That's the end of the second lowest first half in Super Bowl history, plenty of good defence on show and there's bound to be some adjustments at half time, especially from the Rams who have seen their high-flying offence grounded superbly by Bill Belichick and his defensive genius.


GOFF SACKED (PATRIOTS 3-0 RAMS)


EDELMAN IS POST-SEASON MACHINE


FIELD GOAL (PATRIOTS 3-0 RAMS)

Gostkowski good this time from 42 yards and we've finally got some points on the board! The Rams need to start finding something on offence as they've still only just got the one first down so far today.



FIRST QUARTER (PATRIOTS 0-0 RAMS)

Patriots should be ahead after making the most progress in that quarter, and especially with the missed field goal. Some great defence from both sides though.


BIG GAIN (PATRIOTS 0-0 RAMS)


FIELD GOAL NO GOOD! (PATRIOTS 0-0 RAMS)

Gostkowski misses from 46 yards - that's the first missed field goal in this building all season, nobody missed one during the Falcons season. It's also Gostkowski's fourth missed FG in three Super Bowls...


BIG HIT!


THREE-AND-OUT (PATRIOTS 0-0 RAMS)

Quick change of possession and it's tough sledding for Goff on his opening attempts - New England force the punt. Truly deafening noise from the Patriots fans.


INTERCEPTION! (PATRIOTS 0-0 RAMS)

Commentators curse! Not the best throw by Brady and there's a stunned semi-silence inside the stadium as the Rams pick him off after the tipped pass.


OPENING DRIVE (PATRIOTS 0-0 RAMS)

The Pats have scored opening possession drives in six of their last eight games so it's a brave choice by the Rams to give them the ball, and after a big return and two straight first downs it's looking like the Pats are aiming to do just that again.


Here come the teams


Warm-up notes

Nothing wrong with Rams kicker Greg Zeurlein who has been nursing injury as he's booming kicks over from as far as 58 yards.

Wasn't a long warm-up for Jared Goff, who came out after Tom Brady and left the field before him. Brady was very deliberate in all he was doing, and took a long look around the stadium before going back down the tunnel.

You can see why some players say the occasion can get to you before the kick-off, some of the Rams team came speeding out in their warm-ups! Not long to go now...


Closing in on game time

Still sticking to the pre-game selection of the Patriots - hoping this will be a great showpiece though. The crowd will certainly help, it may not have been too much of a factor the other way around, but for these inexperienced Rams, and Goff in particular, it'll be a problem.

They won in New Orleans, which was louder, but playing to GET to the Super Bowl and playing IN the Super Bowl is a totally different ball game.
