If a group of extraterrestrials had landed on earth on Sunday to watch the Patriots play the Rams in what we must call the “Super” Bowl, they would be forgiven for wondering why anyone bothered. Yes, Super Bowl 53 was one of the most anticlimactic televised events in recent memory — so dull it is not even worth this writer’s time to look up what Roman numerals are supposed to be used here.
But just because the Super Bowl was extremely un-super doesn’t mean the NFL had nothing good to offer this year. In fact, it was a pretty riveting season all told. The Rams and Chiefs showcased two of the highest-powered offenses the league had ever seen, the Patriots redefined themselves as a defensive, clock-controlling squad and as a whole, the NFL put up more touchdowns and overall scoring that it had in any other season in history.
As usual, the Bap Lip Reading folks are here to remix some of the football season’s highlights in what has become one of the most reliably hilarious video series on the internet. Watch it. And if you have a way to get in touch with those aliens, have them watch it too.
