Super Bowl Recap : The Bad, the Bad, and ….the Bad (Spoiler Alert)

By Fatima Kane

 

Let’s start off with the score :

3 to 13 for the Patriots – the lowest scoring Super Bowl game ever.

The game looked mostly like this…

…with a couple of interceptions

… and 1 touchdown by the Patriots !

While the lack of scoring seemed to be driving everybody crazy, ESPN called the Patriots’ defense “the best defensive performance we have ever seen in a Super Bowl.” Considering that the Rams had the second-best offense in the second-highest scoring season in NFL history, and the last time a team allowed their opponent only 3 points was 47 years ago when the Cowboys beat the Dolphins 24 – 3, the game maybe wasn’t as bad as it seemed. But watching the game on Sunday was painful, and I’m pretty sure we all ended up looking like this :

Sadly, the halftime show was not much better…

After Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Cardi B turned down offers to perform at the Halftime Show in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, Maroon 5 agreed and performed along with Travis Scott and Big Boi (half of Outkast) for one of the most mediocre performances ever.

Basically, the Super Bowl LIII will go down as the most boring in history, the New England Patriots won again for the 6th time and counting, Tom Brady won his 6th Super Bowl as the oldest quarterback, the halftime show was about as exciting as the game, and the most memorable moment was when Big Boi came out in his humongous fur coat.
