Super Bowl TV ratings hit 10-year low for Patriots win

LeBron James

Led by NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs took the league by storm in the regular season but fell short of reaching a first Super Bowl since 1969 after losing to New England in the AFC Championship Game.

So why wasn't former SC football star Stephon Gilmore the MVP of Super Bowl LIII on Sunday?

That Steelers-Cardinals Super Bowl also was the last game not to draw at least 100 million overall television viewers, and Sunday's game could dip below that mark as well. They previously won by 3, 3, 3, 4 and 6 points. Patriots QB Tom Brady became the first player to ever win six Super Bowls in what was the lowest scoring Super Bowl of all time.

"I don't give a crap if you have a Hall of Fame bust, if you've been a Pro Bowler, or win 20 Super Bowls", he said.

After the game, Sean McVay didn't put the blame on his stars, instead saying that he was out-coached. "Everybody counted us out from the beginning of the season, the mid-season but we're still here".

Both teams set records for fewest touchdowns - one for New England and none for L.A.

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

The score was just 3-0 until late in the third quarter through Stephen Gostkowski's 42-yard field goal from the first possession of the second quarter.
