New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady entered Super Bowl LIII having not been sacked a single time during the playoffs. That didn’t last too long against a fearsome Rams defensive front on Sunday.
After finding himself sacked late in the first quarter, Brady was pressured by two-time reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald.
Donald’s move inside against Patriots offensive lineman David Andrews was something to behold. But it was the hit he put on Brady that was the real highlight of the play.

Surprisingly, Donald was not called for a personal foul on the play. Instead, New England had to punt yet again in what has been a shockingly low-scoring affair through one quarter.
