Tom Brady and the New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII in a game that many will likely want to forget as soon as possible, yet a victory that will forever change a narrative in NFL history.

With their 13-3 win over the Rams, the Patriots joined the Steelers as one of just two franchises to have six Super Bowl wins. The win also cements the Patriots as possibly the greatest NFL franchise.  The win also makes Brady the oldest quarterback to ever win a Super Bowl.

The Patriots, of course, have won all of their Super Bowls in the last 18 years, with Brady being the face of the franchise ever since Drew Bledsoe took a wicked hit early in the 2001 season.

Since then they’ve gone to a league record nine Super Bowls, all during a time when free agency and salary caps were supposed to make this type of run impossible.

The Patriots keep on doing it year after year by seemingly plugging in a number of unknown players around Brady and letting ‘er rip. The scary thing about this year’s Patriots team is, this was supposed to be a down year.

Next season, the Patriots go into the NFL Draft with 12 picks. A young roster to mold into another Super Bowl contender. Brady will be 42 years old entering next season. For all those who want to see him retire, think again. The new agenda and battle cry will be to get Super Bowl victory number 7.  No other franchise has that yet, so expect that to be the driving force for Brady’s swan song.
