It's a six-pack for Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.
The Patriots are Super Bowl champions for the sixth time following a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams. It was the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in the 53-year history of the NFL game, and the first in which neither team reached the end zone until the fourth quarter.
The Patriots didn't go ahead to stay until a 69-yard drive that ended with Sony Michel's two-yard touchdown run with seven minutes remaining.
Brady was intercepted on his first pass before finishing 21 of 35 for 262 yards. Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman was his primary target, grabbing 10 passes for 141 yards.

Michel had 94 yards on 18 carries for the Patriots, who join the Steelers as the only teams with six Super Bowl titles.
The Rams had a chance to tie it shortly after Michel's go-ahead TD. They advanced to the New England 27 before Jared Goff was picked off at the 4 with about 4 1/2 minutes to play. The Patriots turned the miscue into a game-clinching field goal by Stephen Gostkowski.
Los Angeles didn't score until Todd Zuerlein drilled a 53-yard field goal with 2:11 left in the third period.
Goff was 19 of 38 for 229 yards for the Rams, who managed just 62 yards on the ground despite the presence of Todd Gurley.
New England is the first team since the 1972 Dolphins to win a Super Bowl the year after losing one.
Patriots Nation is all set to celebrate the team's sixth Super Bowl title with a parade through Boston on Tuesday.
Mayor Marty Walsh tweeted early Monday morning that the parade will begin at 11am Eastern Time.
It's the second championship parade in Boston in a little more than three months and the second straight title over a team from Los Angeles.
