Brady clearly likes the Super Bowl and he put a ring on it–his fifth ring, to be exact. He’s now the winningest QB in Super Bowl history, which isn’t too shabby considering he’s 39, aka when most football players are retired and headed to a sports analyst position. He and Coach Bill Belichick became the first coach/quarterback duo to hit that win Super Bowl milestone.

This was also the Pats ninth SB appearance and Belichick’s 10th Super Bowl appearance, the most of any coach in NFL history. Even crazier, the Pats had the largest comeback in Super Bowl history.

The Patriots shut out the Falcons in the second half, making up for the 25-point deficit from the first half. After winning the coin toss, it didn’t take the Pats long to get the ball down the field and run it into the endzone for the final touchdown of the game.

Other big winners of the night included Lady Gaga for her stunning halftime show performance–complete with drones, outfit changes, soaring vocals, fire and a mic drop–and all the memes that blessed social media. Check out some of our favorites below.
