2019 Atlanta Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XXXVI

A dynasty was born in the year 2002, as the New England Patriots would capture their first of several Super Bowl titles on the Road to Super Bowl 53 in 2019 with Super Bowl XXXVI.

The Patriots would capture their first Super Bowl title of the Brady-Belichick era in Super Bowl XXXVI, thus birthing a dominance in the NFL that still runs through today. New England defeated St. Louis in Super Bowl XXXVI 20-17, in front of nearly 73,000 fans at the Louisiana Super Dome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This was St. Louis’ third-time appearing in the Super Bowl, but the Patriots had their number. Quarterback Tom Brady captured the Super Bowl XXXVI MVP honors, his first Super Bowl MVP award. Brady completed 16 of his 27 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown, including leading a drive that would set up future hall-of-fame kicker Adam Vinatieri’s game-winning field goal.

The game was played on the Fox network and the cost of a 30 second commercial was around $1.9 million. There were around 86.8 million viewers tuning into the game on February 3, 2002. Pat Summerall and John Madden were both the announcers for the game this time around, along with Pam Oliver and Ron Pitts.
