That defensive success didn’t show signs of sustainability on Sunday. In fact, it left the game to the secondary and that led to an implosion with the Bucs setting a franchise record in points scored in a 55-40 victory.
This offseason has seen a surge in teams hiring young, relatively unproven head coaches from the offensive side of the ball. Much of this was attributed to the success the Los Angeles Rams have had with thirty-something Sean McVay reviving the franchise and leading them to the Super Bowl this season behind an offensive juggernaut which racked up massive point and yard totals.
New England Patriots beat Los Angeles Rams 13-3 to win Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta on Sunday night. Sony Michel’s second half touchdown was enough to guide the Patriots to victory after a defence-dominated first half left New England leading 3-0 at half-time. The Rams were unable to get any offence going and their defence was worn out by the relentlessness of the Patriots’ run game.
