Thank God it’s over. Folks were on the verge of dying of boredom.
The final score in Super Bowl LII (53) was New England Patriots 13 and the Los Angeles Rams 3.
Womp, womp, womp.
The Patriots, who went into halftime with a 3-0 lead, finally scored the game’s first — and only — touchdown with 7 minutes remaining. Yes, it was a clunker. A dud.

Here’s more via TheWrap:
After Sony Michel punched in that lone TD from the ground, young L.A. gunslinger Jared Goff got his Rams offense moving — and then he threw a really bad interception. That flub, against an all-out blitz, pretty much took away any chance Los Angeles had of getting back in the contest.
Pats kicker Stephen Gostkowski made two of his three attempted field goals. Opposing kicker Greg Zuerlein made one of two field goals, an impressive 53-yarder.
In an NFL season defined by offense, it was the defenses that controlled this game. The game was 3-0 at the end of the first half and 3-3 at the end of the third quarter.
