The Super Bowl is the year’s most-watched program, with over 100 million people watching it live. Audiences tune in expecting to witness the hardest hits, the finest plays, and the fastest players. This wasn’t what happened in Super Bowl 53. Instead, audiences were treated to one touchdown, five field goals, and innumerable punts. To compare the game to a defensive chess match would be giving the game too much credit, as a chess match would likely have been more worth watching. Furthermore, a more one sided chess match has likely never happened, as where anyone can win a game of chess, most viewers likely knew the Patriots were going to win long before the game started.
