All-pro cornerback, STEPHON GILLMORE, who made the defensive play of the game by intercepting a Jared Goff pass with approximately 4 minutes left in the game, ending a serious Rams threat to tie the game; TOM BRADY, who led the team to victory and became the only player in history with 6 Super Bowl titles; JULIAN EDELMAN, who had 10 receptions for 141 yards and was selected as the game’s MVP; and finally, and perhaps most importantly, the NEW ENGLAND defense, which allowed the fewest points in a Super Bowl(tied with Dallas in 1972 against Miami.

The Patriots took the lead in the fourth quarter when Sony Michel scored from two yards for a 10-3 lead. Gostkowski added a second field goal with 1:12 remaining in the game to account for the 13-3 final, the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history. Entering Super Bowl LIII, the lowest-scoring title game in NFL history was Super Bowl VII. The Miami Dolphins defeated the Washington Redskins with a score of just 14–7.
