Super Bowl: Commentary compares woeful offence to Black Caps

"Neither scored a touchdown in Super Bowl LIII".

So why wasn't former SC football star Stephon Gilmore the MVP of Super Bowl LIII on Sunday? There are a lot of them, and For The Win writer Steven Ruiz shared one on Twitter.

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.


Tens of thousands of fans flocked to Patriot Place for a deafening send-off rally before the team departed for the Super Bowl. The third year quarterback had a strong season under center for the high-powered Rams offense, but in the biggest game of his life he looked more like a college freshman at his first house party. "I got out-coached", McVeigh said.

After the Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday night, head coach Bill Belichick reminded the doubters during his interview with CBS' Jim Nantz that New England is "still here".

Instead of watching the Super Bowl, thousands of New Orleans residents turned out for a combination demonstration/celebration.
