10:04 p.m. – The 17 year challenge: In 2002, the Patriots beat the then-St. Louis Rams in the Super Bowl for the first championship under Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Now in 2019, the Patriots duo have secured their sixth championship, beating the Los Angeles Rams. New England is now in a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most titles all time.
Tom Brady cements his place as the winningest Super Bowl quarterback with six rings but also becomes the oldest to win a championship, passing the then 39-year-old Peyton Manning by two years. Bill Belichick also becomes the oldest coach to win, just a year older than Tom Coughlin who won his last Super Bowl at age 65.
