    In my latest video breakdown, I wanted to see how the Patriots held the Rams to 3 points in the Super Bowl. We’ll cover:
    1. Bill Belichick’s game plan
    2. Front seven’s performance and how they took away the Rams’ zone running game
    3. Coverage trends that Belichick used to counter Sean McVay’s scheme
    4. Jared Goff's performance - Was it as bad as people thought it was?
    Hope you enjoy the show!

    It’s easy to scheme when you know what they were running*** Joey porter is still around you should ask him what he thinks about their schemes

    The reason the patriots see so much success is due to Bill not playing the current game. He plans his plays to throw off future opponents. He dominated the rams because he set them up to think he would play more man due to previous weeks. But Bill knew this and adjusted. Most coaches dont have that awareness. Between the amazing players and a coach who can see what happens before it does, it makes a hard team to take down.

    Held em to 3 points because the rams weren’t supposed to be in the Super Bowl in the first place. Coming from a Pats fan, it should’ve Been Brady vs Brees

    The Rams defense played a game they’d win 9/10 times. Holding Brady and the Pats to 13 points. The offense just couldn’t get a thing done.

    The Rams really missed Cooper Kupp as well in the SB because he was like their Julian Edelman.

  • Peter Brown
    Peter Brown 8 days ago

    Remember to that the Bears ran this defense in December and the Pat's took that and tweaked it to fit their system. Seriously look at the film of that game. In addition remember Belecheck stopped the 49's in the 80's, The Bills in the 90's and the Rams in the 00's. Too bad the Saints didn't get there.

    Simplified ..The rams gave up on the run Game WAY to early .. dont know if gurley was injured or what. But they put the ball in Goff's hands . without even a half assed attempt at a run game the pats defense had no reason to play them honest

    N0TYALC 8 days ago

    Tom Brady is the only man alive who could score a measly 13 points against the 19th best defense in the league, while his defense holds the #2 offense in the league to only 3 points... and still win MVP.

    If cooper kupp was playing it would have been a whole different game. The D killed pats, however the D got tired cuz rams Off was playing stupid.

    Cooks why rams lost if you ask me man drop TWO tds

      FANG THEHEROWOLF 8 days ago

      @Andrew Rincon kupp is just a vital player becuse he forces LBs to be humble or get scored and that opens it up for bombs

    • Andrew Rincon
      Andrew Rincon 8 days ago

      That’s very true and that’s because he isn’t that type of player. I’m a Rams fan and we needed Cooper Kupp more than ever in this game. He’s big enough to get over guys and has proven that he can catch the big passes like during the Vikings Wednesday night game. Coop is my favorite player on the team and I hope he comes back healthy and strong next season

      FANG THEHEROWOLF 8 days ago

      He did drop 2 but rams didnt run it like the used to

    "Objectively a well coached team". Objective does not mean consensus. I've heard people misuse that recently, the way literally has been misused. Consensus or undisputed is more appropriate. Just a tip.

    The rams lost because they're not patient on offense. Sometimes you have to take what the defense gives you. Goff repeatedly ignored the check off guy and tried to get the ball down the field againt mostly zone defense. For the rams to truly take the next step they absolutely have to demonstrate more patience and stop with the long ball throws. After watching tape, im sure Mcvay will figure it out.

  • my take on
    my take on 9 days ago

    😂😂😂😂 blah blah blah,the only reason is Rams QB had no intention on winning the game...he gave up 3 mi utes in to the game,you can see his face when he walked back to rhe bench
    Sometime during the game Rams pick up a first down...but Dumbass Rams QB is seen walking back to the bench until one if his players had to go get him back 😂😂😂😂

    yetor K10 benton 10 days ago

    The Pats placed more players in the box, shutting down the rushing game that killed the Cowboys. They boxed in Goff so he had no place to run, the constant pressure rattled this young QB early and often. Not to mention the Rams were helped out by officials from California in both the Cowboys and Saints playoff games. With one hand briefly touching Dak he was ruled down and the CB hit the WR long before the ball arrived in the Saints game. One of the most corrupt years in playoff history, the NFL is hitting rock bottom fast.

    The weakness of Bill’s defense is man to man coverage. That’s how you attack. See the NYG and Philly SB games. You have to make the LBs cover. Goff hasn’t learned yet the nuances of the defenses and what to look out for. He’ll struggle until he does.

  • Jerry Junior

    Wished they would’ve been shutout 👀 that had been amazing considering they were the highly powered and undefeated offense in the league that season.

    Bill Belichick aggressively stole back his hoodie in this game after haters started to creep in all year long. One of the best defensive performances in super bowl history.

    Another example of Brady's greatness. He was a second year Quarterback when he played in his first Super Bowl. He handled the pressure and the #2 Pick in the draft, Jarrod Goff, didnt.

  • Johnny M
    Johnny M 12 days ago

    Let say Bill Belichek outsmart and outwork Shaun Mcvay and Pats def line dominate Rams Off line. that is why they where very slapy by number of plays they didn finish his guy on time and so on. That is difrence between Patriots and other teams there is not individual slapy playes you do yours job or get out there.

  • nate stroh

    This was our BEST defensive performance’s since the parting of Matt Patricia. Bill will always be a defense Jedi. None better.

  • Coach Tim Mendoza
    Coach Tim Mendoza 12 days ago +1

    Not only Goff, but McVay played into their hands by not being better prepared for a defense the Pats used in the AFC Championship game. McVay & Goff get way too much credit. Goff was not up to the competition, and McVay was out coached, HEAVILY.

    • Andrew Rincon
      Andrew Rincon 8 days ago

      Who exactly is Goff throwing to other than Cooks? Our best wide receiver was out with and ACL injury. If Cooper Kupp played this game things are a lot more closer. He would have caught at least 1 of those 2 TD passes Cooks dropped guaranteed.
