ATLANTA (CBS) — Pretty much every time the Patriots play a football game, history is made. Sunday night’s Super Bowl was no different.

With the Patriots — and Tom Brady and Bill Belichick — winning their sixth Super Bowl in nine tries, it was another busy night for the editors of the record books.

What stands out the most, aside from the accomplishments of Brady and Belichick, are the records for fewest points. For both teams, this was as low-scoring as a Super Bowl gets. And defensively, the Patriots matched the record for fewest points allowed.

Here’s a look at all of the records set or tied on Sunday night, when the Patriots defeated the Rams 13-3. (Information courtesy of the NFL, via Elias Sports Bureau.)
