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

The Patriots 13-3 victory over the Rams marked the franchise's sixth total Super Bowl win.

But Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who now has six Super Bowl rings - more than any other player in history - lofted a ideal 34-yard pass to Rob Gronkowski to set up Sony Michel to burrow over the line for the game's only touchdown with seven minutes left.

That figure ties them with the Steelers for most of any National Football League franchise. The lackluster event drew an overnight rating of 44.9, which was the lowest for any Super Bowl since 2009.

"We've seen about as much offence in this Super Bowl as the New Zealand Black Caps have shown in their recent test cricket matches lately", one commentator said.

Tens of thousands of fans flocked to Patriot Place for a deafening send-off rally before the team departed for the Super Bowl. The Browns had their best season since 2014 and went 5-3 after Gregg Williams replaced Hue Jackson as head coach, but it Baker Mayfield might have to wait a little longer to play in his first Super Bowl.

Brady was joined in the record books by 66-year-old Bill Belichick who becomes the oldest coach to hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy, Reuters reported.

The Rams earned the dubious distinction of being tied with the '72 Miami Dolphins for scoring the fewest points in a Super Bowl.
