How is it possible that a defense featuring Aaron Donald and Ndakamon Suh at DT be arguably the worst in the league at stopping the run? Is it more a function of the type of games their teams are involved in, or are these guys just overrated?

I would check the stats on their run defense in the 1st half, I am guessing it's better in the 1st half.

They probably have leads, give up some "don't care" runs, def lineman is focused on trying to pressure the QB, and a run play just keeps the clock running.

I am not any good at looking up and finding stats, maybe someone can find this ?

I am theorizing that the team that creates more turnovers with their defense is more likely to win the SB.

I am going to guess, without seeing the numbers, that the team with the defense that created more turnovers in the regular season, won 8 of the last 10 Super Bowls.

Mebbe. My guess is that they are weak in their back 7, also known as Marcus Peters

At age sixty, the odds of the Vikings appearing and ultimately winning a SB is starting to become a blur. Odds that they win a SB before I croak?

One chance in probably thirty. So unless I live another thirty years, the chances are not great.

Feels like a mid 70s Super Bowl doesnt it?

What happened to the Rams scoring those 50 plus point games? Bill really that much of a genius?

I was thinking at halftime the Rams had a good shot of winning this game.

But after seeing Goff on the sidelines, probably not much chance. Goff doesn't looked focused, he looks nervous.

If the Rams win, I think it mostly needs to be defense getting turnovers, and the run game coming alive.

Throwing pop fly's is not very conducive to winning games.

This game is over. Rams won't see the ball again and if they do they will be down 2 scores.

In the biggest game of his career, goff totally wet his pants in crunch time. He just looks like he wants to go home. And now, the defense is falling apart. Game over.

Belichek and Brady two greatest Ever. None close.

Give Belichek two weeks against a young QB and you have the deck stacked against you big time.

Belichek should be MVP.

Goff was terrible... like make Trent Dilfer look like a HOFer bad...
It didn't help that his 2 good passes to the endzone Cook dropped... tough catches for sure but it's the f'ing superbowl!

How do you feel as a Rams fan right now? Goff looks so totally in over his head! I'm betting on a Rams team implosion next year.

New England is a Machine.

Nothing seems to faze that organization.

Age, new players, coaches leaving, fines, scandals, injuries, salary cap...Nothing.

So wish the Vikings could pull this off...just once.

Just shows what a difference an organization makes.

That might have been the BEST defensive performance against Brady I have ever seen... and they still somehow manage to eek out a win... just unbelievable how resourceful they are.

Change Nick Foles for Goff and it's an LA win... you need a clutch qb... very little wiggle room in that argument.

So you are telling me Cousins behind a competent O line would have no positive effect on outcome, though Foles would?

Goff failed because the Patriots were all over him. Result would have been similar with Cousins.
