LA Rams Super Bowl pre-game huddle

The New England Patriots won a record-equalling sixth Super Bowl title after a record-breaking game in Atlanta.

The Pats outlasted the Los Angeles Rams 13-3, the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in history, to win a sixth crown to equal that of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Running back Sony Michel plunged in for the only touchdown of the game with seven minutes remaining in what proved to be the decisive play of a game dominated by defences.

LA quarterback Jared Goff came up small when it mattered most throwing an interception to Stephon Gilmore with a little over three minutes to go which ultimately proved fatal.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed one field goal before making a second as the Patriots led 3-0 at the half.

Greg Zuerlein tied the game in the second but it was Michel's two-yard score in the fourth quarter after a clutch catch from tight end Rob Gronkowski which gave New England a lead they would ultimately never relinquish.

Gostkowski's second field goal with a minute and a half left iced it and sparked jubilant scenes inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and back in Boston.
