Super Bowl TV ratings hit 10-year low for Patriots win

Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman is hoping fans will be recovered because he wants a raucous party.

The low-scoring matchup between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams on CBS averaged a 44.9 rating in metered market households.

The Patriots hold the record for number of Super Bowl appearances, at 11. But the Super Bowl's overall ratings this year may have gotten dragged down by places such as New Orleans, home of a Saints team that many feel was robbed of a chance to play the Patriots because of a missed call in the NFC championship game. Goff looked baffled by the Patriots' zone coverage, and the Rams never got the rhythm that made them one of the most successful offenses in football this year.

"I don't give a crap if you have a Hall of Fame bust, if you've been a Pro Bowler, or win 20 Super Bowls", he said.


"It's sweet", said Belichick. New England did not score the game's first touchdown until the fourth quarter.

Brady moved in for the kill with another drive to set up kicker Stephen Gostkowski who nailed a 41-yarder with 72 seconds remaining to clinch New England's third Super Bowl since 2015.

Gostkowski added gloss with a late field goal as the Patriots ground out a hard-fought win.

The Rams high-powered offense, which averaged almost 33 points a game during the regular season, failed to fire and managed just 57 total yards and two first downs in the first half and 260 for the game.
