Super Bowl: Commentary compares woeful offence to Black Caps

New England Patriots' Sony Michel dives for the only touchdown of the Super Bowl

The defensive nature of the game, which for much of the game was dominated by the punters, caused many National Basketball Association players to note how boring it was watching the game, but after, it was all about showing love to Brady on another title.

The Patriots' Tom Brady, no stranger to breaking records, claimed his sixth victory at the Super Bowl, which is also a league first.

"We've seen about as much offence in this Super Bowl as the New Zealand Black Caps have shown in their recent test cricket matches lately", one commentator said.

"Oh you don't say?" said another befuddled colleague. New England did not score the game's first touchdown until the fourth quarter. They are tied with Pittsburgh for number of wins (six).

"Super Bowl? What Super Bowl?" the front-page headline read followed by the sports lead, "What do the Rams and the Saints have in common?"

The Rams earned the dubious distinction of being tied with the '72 Miami Dolphins for scoring the fewest points in a Super Bowl. Consecutive Super Bowls have not featured the same two teams since the Dallas Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills went head-to-head in Super Bowl XXVII and Super Bowl XXVIII, with the Cowboys winning both games.
