While most New Orleans Saints fans were boycotting Super Bowl LII in Atlanta, some players couldn't help but revel in the Los Angeles Rams' 13-3 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday (Feb. 3).

Wide receiver Michael Thomas, who has not held back his thoughts on the controversial no-call that helped the Rams defeat the Saints 26-23 in overtime of the NFC Championship Game, clearly reveled in the outcome, tweeting out "Leftover Gumbo" and "Y'all better score more than 3 points in that new stadium."

Meanwhile, offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod joined the thousands of Saints fans in one of the second-lines, posing for a picture with a fan with a clown nose referencing NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and a "Robbed!" T-shirt.

Punter Thomas Morstead said he took the opportunity to watch Super Bowl XLIV for the first time in 10 years.

Defensive end Cameron Jordan flew back from his NFL Honors hosting appearance and tweeted his gratitude for the compassion he was shown during a difficult week.

When will we know if Saints fans' Super Bowl boycott affected TV ratings?

New Orleans Saints fans likely had two goals in mind on Super Bowl Sunday:

1.) Show the world how to party (not pout), even if your favorite team missed a Super Bowl berth in large part because of one of the worst officiating gaffes in NFL history.

2) Send a message to the NFL that the city would, in fact, work together to make its sincere disinterest in Super Bowl 53 known by trying to suppress local television ratings.

Come Monday morning, Nielsen TV ratings will be released for the Super Bowl, which ended with the New England Patriots defeating the Los Angeles Rams, 13-3, in a contest that was largely mocked on social media for its lack of excitement. ...

Kansas City Chiefs early favorites to win Super Bowl LIV next season

The New England Patriots are champions for the second time in three seasons after defeating the Los Angeles Rams, but Las Vegas doesn't believe they are the favorites to win the Super Bowl again next season.

Instead, the Kansas City Chiefs and NFL MVP QB Patrick Mahomes are getting oddmakers' respect.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened odds to win Super Bowl LIV in early January. The Chiefs had the second-best odds at 7-1, with the Rams as the favorite at 6-1. However, in the weeks since, Kansas City has shifted to the 6-1 favorite there and at multiple other Las Vegas sportsbooks.

New England, Los Angeles and the New Orleans Saints have the second-best odds at 8-1 at Westgate. No other team has odds in the single digits.

The teams with the next-best odds are the Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Chargers and Chicago Bears at 14-1 at the SuperBook. The Cleveland Browns are among six teams with 20-1 odds. ...

While two other teams prepared to contend for the Lombardi Trophy in Atlanta, Saints faithful spent Super Bowl Sunday turning New Orleans into a rollicking display of solidarity with their team, mixing the sardonic and the gleeful like so much black and gold.

At grass-roots, fan-led events around the city, New Orleans partied as if the Saints were indeed playing in Super Bowl LIII, refusing to quietly accept the circumstances that kept them from the field.

A parade that began in Jackson Square quickly swamped the French Quarter with a crowd wearing black and gold, plus plenty of revelers costumed as refs. Some blocks were so packed it looked like Fat Tuesday in the Quarter.

A music festival dubbed Boycott Bowl took over a stretch of downtown New Orleans, and many bars, restaurants and clubs did their part. ...

Attorney and Saints fan Tony LeMon of Covington, who has worn his Saints leather helmet to games for the past 20 years, has filed a lawsuit against the NFL alleging fraud over the missed call in the Saints/Rams game.

Tony LeMon, who served a stint as first assistant in 22nd Judicial District Attorney Warren Montgomery's office, knows larceny when he sees it, but the Saints fan and lawyer, who is now in private practice, is going after the NFL for the missed-call debacle.

LeMon filed a suit in Orleans Parish Civil District Court on Friday against the NFL alleging fraud, unjust enrichment and "detrimental reliance," a term used for forcing someone to perform their obligations under a contract.

Any damages would go to local charities, he said, and the suit stipulates damages are to be under $75,000. That ceiling prevents any effort to move the suit to federal court, he said.

Alleging fraud "can eliminate many of the NFL's technical defenses for a dismissal," LeMon said. ...

Boycott Bowl helps Who Dats forget all about the other thing in Atlanta

It was a good-natured example of anger management on a grand scale. By 5 p.m. Sunday (Feb. 3), the intersection of Fulton and Lafayette streets had become the center of a black and gold sea as more than 3,000 New Orleans Saints fans flowed to Boycott Bowl, the much-anticipated protest concert that would take place opposite the corporate-sports extravaganza in Atlanta.

On the small stage, Fred LeBlanc, the beyond-extroverted frontman of Cowboy Mouth, led a sort of Who Dat revival in which he debunked the superiority of the Super Bowl, offered a splintery assessment of NFL officiating and ethics, paid Tom Brady a colorful backhanded compliment, all while asserting the self-evident virtue of, well, anything and everything having to do with the Crescent City.

LeBlanc was the perfect cheerleader for Saints fans who were like wall flowers who hadn’t been invited to join the big dance and needed a good friend’s bearhug to make it through the night. LeBlanc was just the start of the pro-Saints love fest. ...

We don't yet know who will win the Super Bowl. But we do know who wins Super Bowl Sunday: That honor goes to the Who Dat Nation, who turned out by the thousands to second-line, party and dance the day away.

These folks won't be watching the big game on TV on Sunday (Feb. 3). But that doesn't mean they didn't have any fun.

Saints fans across New Orleans filled bars, venues and the streets to show their defiance to the NFL. See how big the crowds were in the posts and photos below. ...

Patriots win 6th Lombardi Award, topping Rams 13-3 in lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever

The New England Patriots broke one record and tied another by beating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3, to win the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in history, and match the Pittsburgh Steelers as the NFL's only six-time Lombardi Award winners.

The matchup shattered the record of lowest-scoring Super Bowl to date: Super Bowl VII, when Miami Dolphins beat Washington Redskins by a score of 14–7 in January 1973.

New England rookie running back Sony Michel scored on a 2-yard run with roughly 7 minutes remaining to give the Patriots a 10-3 lead over the Rams. Kicker Stephen Gostkowski later added a field goal late in the fourth quarter to close out the scoring.

The first Super Bowl without a touchdown through three quarters was in dire need of a boost when quarterback Tom Brady completed four consecutive passes to set up Michel's touchdown plunge. The drive opened with an 18-yard catch by Rob Gronkowski, who added a 29-yard diving catch at the 2.

The Rams answered the Patriots with a long field goal near the end of the third quarter to tie at 3-3. ...

After a dizzying display of defense from both teams in the first three quarters, the Patriots again saved their best for the fourth quarter on Sunday.

Tom Brady led a 5-play, 69-yard drive early in the fourth quarter culminating in a Sony Michel 2-yard dive for the game’s lone touchdown, and Stephen Gostkowski sealed the win with a 42-yard field goal with 1:16 to play, lifting the Pats to a 13-3 win and their sixth Super Bowl title in 17 years.

Stephon Gilmore set up the final Pats drive to the field goal with an interception of Jared Goff inside the Patriots’ 5-yard line with less than five minutes to play.

See below for the play-by-play.
