ATLANTA, Ga. (WNCN) – Tom Brady found Julian Edelman early and often in the first half of Super Bowl LIII.
Despite the Patriots not having any touchdowns to show for it, Edelman had seven catches for 93 yards — more than the 57 yards the entire Los Angeles offense mustered in the first half.
The Rams struggled to move the ball in the first half. They were forced to punt on all six of their possessions.
Still, the likes of Corey Littleton, who intercepted Brady on his first pass attempt of the game, helped keep the Patriots at bay. Stephen Gostkowski’s 42-yard field goal, after missing his first try, was the difference in the first half.
