Once again, the New England Patriots can call themselves Super Bowl champions.

On Sunday night in Atlanta, they defeated the Los Angeles Rams 13-3.

WBUR's sports and society reporter Shira Springer discusses the game — and what the win meant to the Patriots.

This segment aired on February 4, 2019.
