Winning his third Super Bowl ring on Sunday night was Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman (as well as other members of the team), earning game MVP honors for the first time in his career.
The win for Edelman also marked a milestone for the Jewish community:
Edelman came up with 10 receptions on 141 yards, more than half of Tom Brady's total passing yards (262) on the night.
Although it wasn't a typical offensive showing by the Patriots in a Super Bowl game, they came out on top, and that's all that matters at the end of the day.
"You just have to worry about one play at a time, and just keep knocking at the door," Edelman said in his post-game conference. "[And it's about] being resilient, and just keep on working, and that's what our group did. It wasn't pretty, but I'll take an ugly win over a pretty loss any day."
Edelman, 33, has one more year remaining on his contract before he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
