Ring 1: Super Bowl XXXVI

The Patriots finished the 2001 regular season with a record of 11-5 behind a defense that ranked sixth in scoring and a first-year starting quarterback Tom Brady. They faced the Rams, who entered with a 14-2 regular season and were a substantial 14-point favorite in the big game. 

The Rams dominated in yards 427 to 267, but the Patriots took advantage of three turnovers and were up 17-3 in the third. The Rams tied the game at 17 with a minute and a half remaining. 

Brady showed poise and led the Patriots on a drive to set up the game-winning field goal by Adam Vinatieri from 48 yards out. Brady won MVP of the game after completing 16-of-27 for 145 yards.

Ring 2: Super Bowl XXXVIII

New England finished the 2003 regular season with a 14-2 record and advanced to the Super Bowl by defeating the Indianapolis Colts 24-14. The Carolina Panthers’ opponent came off a road win against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game. 

The Patriots and Panthers put on a show, combining for 868 yards after a slow start in which neither team scored for the first 27 minutes. Adam Vinatieri secured the win for the Patriots with a 41-yard field goal with four seconds left. Brady was named MVP for the second time in as many wins.

Ring 3: Super Bowl XXXIX

The defending Super Bowl champions stormed through the regular season, winning 14 games. They faced the Philadelphia Eagles, who put together a 13-3 regular season record, making their first appearance in the big game since 1981. A tight, defensive battle through three quarters saw the teams tied at 14-14. 

New England took a 21-14 lead following a 2-yard touchdown run by Corey Dillon. A field goal by Adam Vinatieri put the Patriots up 10. The Eagles cut the lead to three in under two minutes when Donovan McNabb found Greg Lewis from 30 yards out. A last-gasp effort by the Eagles ended in an interception for the fourth turnover, securing the win. Deion Branch was named MVP after hauling in 11 for 133 yards.

Ring 4: Super Bowl XLIX

The Patriots went a decade without a title entering the game. They were coming off a 12-4 record, and their 8th appearance in the big game tied the Cowboys and Steelers for most in the event’s history. New England faced the Seattle Seahawks, who possessed a ferocious defense that led them to a 12-4 record. The game was tight until the Seahawks went up ten in the third quarter. 

Two New England touchdowns put them up by the score of 28-24 with two minutes to play. Seattle nearly won the game but was stopped a yard short on an interception by Malcolm Butler. Brady completed 37 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns, winning his third Super Bowl MVP.

Ring 5: Super Bowl LI

The Patriots advanced to their record 9th Super Bowl after a 14-2 record during the 2016 season. They faced the Atlanta Falcons, who went 11-5 behind quarterback Matt Ryan and the league’s top offense. The Falcons stormed to a 21-3 lead at the half and 28-3 halfway through the third quarter. 

Unphased, the Patriots scored 25 straight points to take the game to overtime. They won on the first possession in overtime, scoring a touchdown for a 34-28 win. Brady completed 43-of-62 passes for 466 yards, finding James White 14 times. Brady won his 4th Super Bowl MVP at the age of 39.

Ring 6: Super Bowl LIII

After falling to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII, the wildest Super Bowl in history, the Patriots and the Rams tangled in a defensive battle for the ages. During the regular season, the Patriots had a record of 11-5, while the Rams went 13-3 under Sean McVay, the youngest head coach to make the big game at age 33. 

Neither team scored a touchdown through the first three quarters, and the score was tied at 3-3, heading to the 4th. The game’s only touchdown was scored by Sony Michel, as the Patriots won by a score of 13-3. Julian Edelman won the MVP after catching ten passes for 141 yards. 

The Rams were the second team to fail to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

Ring 7: Super Bowl LV

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers went 11-5 during the regular season, earning a wild card berth. They met the Kansas City Chiefs, who were coming off a 14-2 season and were decided favorites. However, the game was all Tampa Bay in front of only 25,000 fans in their home stadium due to COVID-19 protocols.  

The Chiefs failed to score a touchdown to become only the third Super Bowl team not to reach the end zone. Tampa Bay took advantage of miscues and penalties by the Chiefs and bolted to a 21-6 lead at the half. Brady completed 21-of-29 for 201 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-9 rout. 

He was named MVP of the game for the 5th time, becoming the oldest Super Bowl MVP and oldest quarterback to win at age 43.
