The New England Patriots continued their reign as the greatest dynasty in NFL history on Sunday, defeating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl LIII.
As soon as the final whistle blew, Patriots players stormed the field to celebrate, with the media following in force. The moment made for a chaotic scene, with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady serving as the focal point of the attention.
In the middle of it all was CBS on-field reporter Tracy Wolfson, who was charged with conducting the postgame interview with Brady.
Unfortunately for Wolfson, the scrum was so packed – with media attempting to get pictures of Brady, and Brady attempting to celebrate with his teammates – that the interview couldn’t take place when the CBS broadcast crew threw to her on the field.

However, Wolfson would hang tough and find her moment, keeping close to Brady and, once he had concluded a few moments with teammates and coaches, conducted a pitch-perfect interview in the midst of a still-raucous crown.
