Jimmy Kimmel opened his show on Monday night by saying, "Welcome to Hollywood, home of the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams!".

Whitworth, 37, elaborated, explaining that there's more to life than the Rams' 13-3 loss.

The overall point total of 16 - 13 Patriots, 3 Rams - was the lowest of any Super Bowl in National Football League history.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Julian Edelman were not present as both were at Disney World in Florida.

Brady moved in for the kill with another drive to set up kicker Stephen Gostkowski who nailed a 41-yarder with 72 seconds remaining to clinch New England's third Super Bowl since 2015.

Super Bowl 53's TV ratings hit a 10-year low, according to, and the numbers were down for the fourth straight year. The two-time NBA MVP had already strongly suggested that he and his teammates had no desire to make the visit, saying they didn't stand for "what our president. said and the things that he hasn't said in the right terms". The franchise has won their 6th championship in 17 years. Brady said he could not attend because of family matters. "They have, I guess, the greatest quarterback of all time", he asserted.

Gostkowski added gloss with a late field goal as the Patriots ground out a hard-fought win.

Later in the interview, Trump said, "People love to come to the White House".
