BOSTON – The New England Patriots triumphed over the Los Angeles Rams at Super Bowl LIII with a final score of 13-3 on Sunday night. The win was the sixth title for the Patriots since 2002, with star quarterback Tom Brady setting the record for most Super Bowl wins by a single National Football League player.

It was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history, breaking the 46 year record set by the Miami Dolphins in 1973. The game was tied 3-3 going into the fourth quarter, when the Patriots scored the first touchdown of the game and soared to victory.

After the game wrapped up in Atlanta, fans flooded the streets in Boston, marching down to Boston Common screaming and singing. On the Common, there were reportedly three arrests, according to WCVB.

The Prudential Center lit up the night sky with “Go Pats” emblazoned on the building. Jubilant fans stopped to take a picture with the iconic building in the background.

As they have many times before, the Patriots and their fans will celebrate the win with a Duck Boat parade on Tuesday morning at 11 a.m. The exact parade route is not yet available, but if it follows the same route as 2017, it should start at Hynes Convention Center, travel down Boylston Street and end up at City Hall Plaza. This will be the second Duck Boat parade in four months. The last parade was for the Red Sox World Series win.

The weather forecast for Tuesday is a high of 60 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
