In honor of Super Bowl LIII, here’s a shot of now six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady. This year’s game at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history. The photo is from this past season’s New England Patriots matchup against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte. The Panthers won the game 25-14.
