With less than five minutes left in the Super Bowl and the Patriots up by a touchdown, Rams quarterback Jared Goff threw a costly interception.
Goff threw the ball up towards the end zone with the pass rush in his face. The ball floated on him and cornerback Stephon Gilmore picked it off at the three yard line.
WOW.@BumpNrunGilm0re PICKS OFF Jared Goff with 4:17 left in the game. @Patriots leading 10-3.

The mistake might have just cost Los Angeles a chance at winning the Super Bowl. You can’t just throw the ball up for grabs in that situation.
