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.
Raiders Sign Jonathan Cooper
Cooper will likely provide solid depth to the Raiders’ offensive line, as well as some insurance in case Richie Incognito is suspended.
Martavis Bryant Applies for Reinstatement
Bryant started 2 games for the Raiders last season, following his trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers, but was suspended by the NFL shortly after.
Bryant has been suspended a handful for times by the NFL throughout his career, and it will be interesting to see if his application for reinstatement is granted.
Chiefs’ Tyrann Mathieu Says Defense Has Challenge Ahead of Them
Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu is confident in what his new team can do in 2019, but says that the defense as a challenge ahead of them.
Mathieu knows just how much the defense struggled, consistently getting lit up despite the immense production from the Chief’s offense thanks to the breakout play of quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Mathieu is hoping to provide a spark at the safety position, something that has been missing in recent seasons.
“I think we’ve got a great challenge ahead,” Mathieu said, according to Pete Grathoff of the Kansas City Star.
“I told our group, ‘This is going to be a tough hill to climb, especially where those guys were last year.’ They brought myself and Frank Clark in, and I think anytime you can bring two guys in that really have a chip on their shoulders, an edge, a certain personality, you can rub off on a lot of guys in a positive way. I think that’s why they brought me in, Kansas City, for one was to really kind of raise the tide of everybody around me, and so it’s going to be a fun season.”
