These Stats Sum Up Patriots Defense’s Dominant First Half Vs. Rams

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots offense effectively were non-existent in the first half of Super Bowl LIII.

But the Los Angeles Rams, somehow, were even worse.

The Patriots and Rams both struggled mightily through the first two quarters Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with New England taking a 3-0 lead into the break. The Pats’ defense smothered Jared Goff throughout the early goings en route to one of the worst first-half performances by the Rams in the Sean McVay era.

Yikes.

Football fans all over the world, including those voicing their opinions on Twitter, certainly will be looking for a whole lot more offense in the second half.
