The New England Patriots are once again Super Bowl champions, defeating the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. This was the team's sixth overall win, tying them with the Pittsburgh Steelers for most Super Bowl wins.

As thousands of fans headed out of Atlanta Monday morning, "Morning Edition" producer Taylor Gantt and GPB reporter Ross Terrell joined "On Second Thought" to break down the highlights of the game. They discussed Maroon 5's halftime show, the role social media played throughout the game and how the city managed visitors over the event weekend.

Super Bowl 53 gets underway in less than one month. The action will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on February 3. Before the game and entertainment, the Super Bowl committee and the arts advocacy group, WonderRoot, are collaborating on murals to highlight the city’s civil rights and social justice legacy. The Off the Wall project seeks to elevate key stories from Atlanta’s pursuit of civil and human rights. Eleven muralists were chosen to create designs based on community conversations.

GPB’s Ross Terrell and WonderRoot executive director Chris Appleton joined “On Second Thought” to discuss the Off the Wall initiative.
