A record-setting punt by Hekker (65 yards, the longest in Super Bowl history by 1 yard) and an injury to Patriots safety Patrick Chung, who declared out of the game, are the two biggest developments of the third quarter.
Fourth quarter | Patriots 13, Rams 3: Patriots made their victory official with a 41-yard field goal by Gostkowski as Zuerlein missed an attempt to make it a one-score game as there is no time left.
So, the Patriots, which started 17 years ago achieved success this night with a 13-3 win which has given Bill Belichick and Tom Brady their sixth 'Lombardi' Trophy.
