On February 3rd, 2019 Super Bowl 53 took place. The New England Patriot went head to head with the Los Angeles Rams in the city of Atlanta GA.
The first quarter was several three and outs for both the Patriots and the Rams. Both teams were having trouble getting down the field during the first quarter. Several overthrown passes by both Tom Brady and Jared Goff. Both the Patriots and Rams defenses have been playing at elite levels, to prevent both dominating offenses from scoring.
First points were put on the board in the second quarter by the New England Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski . However, the quarter went on with several three and outs. The Rams were having difficulty incorporating Todd Gurley in the game. The game started to heat up around the three-minute mark. Tom Brady made a necessary completion to Julian Edelman, which resulted in a first down. Brady connects with Patterson for a gain of 9 that put the Patriots in field goal range. However, the offense remained on the field and Brady’ pass to Gronkowski was incomplete and the downs were turned over to the Rams. First and 10 and Goff was sacked on the Rams 25. By the end of the first half, the Rams only had 57 yards and two first downs.
The third quarter started with a shaky start by the Rams. The offense continued to have trouble heating up and had difficulty getting down the field. Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein kicked a 65-yard punt. This 65-yard punt is now the new longest punt in Super Bowl history. Rams finally get on the board making the score 3-3. A monster sack by Dont’a Hightower force the Rams to kick a 53-yard field goal to tie the game. At the end of the third quarter, the game was tied -3-3.
The fourth and final quarter took some time to get momentum. Goff has been under pressure all quarter. The first red zone play and touchdown of the game happened with only 7 minutes remaining in the game. With two big plays by Brady to Gronkowski and a goal-line push by Sony Michel put the Patriots up by 7. The Rams offense started picking up momentum and charged down the field. Goff throws an interception after the could have been touchdown drop by Brandin Cooks. Brady marched his offense down the field and got a field goal making the score 13-3.
The game concluded with the Patriots victory and the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Congratulations to the New England Patriots for winning Super Bowl LIII 13-3. Congratulations to Julian Edelman for being named this Super Bowl MVP.
Bills Sign Lee Smith
The signing marks a return for Smith as he played for the Bills from 2011 until 2014 before heading off to spent the last few seasons with the Oakland Raiders.
Smith is known for his blocking skills and is widely considered one of the league’s best blocking tight ends.
Dolphins Sign Mark Walton
Walton has the talent, and may be a good pickup for the Dolphins, but he is likely facing a suspension from the league for the arrests.
Chargers’ Phillip Rivers Content with Contract Situation
The Los Angeles Chargers will enter the 2019 season as one of the favorites in the AFC and veteran quarterback Phillip Rivers is feeling good about the upcoming season, as well as his current contract situation with the team.
The Chargers and Rivers could work out a contract extension, but Rivers isn’t stressing about that right now:
“I just feel at peace,” Rivers said, during an appearance on FOX Sports Radio San Diego. “If the extension is what works best for both of us and that’s how it plays out, then great. If not, shoot, let’s go have a heck of a 2019 and then we’ll worry about 2020 when we need to worry about it. I say that with every intention of being the quarterback in 2020 here. It’s not for any reason other than, hey, I signed up for this many years and this year is the last year running and let’s go if that’s what’s best. I really do feel at peace about it and feel good.”
Rivers is slated to earn $11 million in the final year of his contract.
