ATLANTA – Tom Brady wrote his name into the NFL record books here Sunday, winning the Super Bowl for a sixth time as the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in a defense-dominated finale.

Brady, 41, became the first player ever to win six Super Bowls, 17 years after leading the Patriots to his first title in 2002. 

Rookie running back Sony Michel scored the game's winning touchdown for the Patriots late in the fourth quarter.

The win saw the Patriots pull level with the Pittsburgh Steelers with six all-time Super Bowl wins.
