“Super Bowl? What Super Bowl?” the front-page headline reads.
The paper’s sports headline continues the trolling on its sports page lead, referencing the Rams’ failure to score a touchdown in the 13-3 loss to the Patriots.
“What do the Rams and the Saints have in common? Neither scored a touchdown in Super Bowl LIII.”
