On Sunday, we’ll find out which team will hoist the Lombardi Trophy for winning Super Bowl LIII. The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will battle for the championship in Atlanta, and while it’s a reason to party, it’s also a bit bittersweet: After the Super Bowl, there won’t be any on-field NFL action until August.
The Rams and Patriots have made their way to Atlanta, which means Super Bowl week has kicked off in earnest. Here’s what you need to know ahead of the big game on Sunday. It will be the third Super Bowl in Atlanta, and the first at the stadium, which opened in 2017.
Top-flight offenses carried the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams this season, but both defenses have been clutch leading up to the 2019 Super Bowl. The Rams have been No. 2 in the postseason in total defense, followed closely by the Patriots at No. 4. L.A. also just shut down New Orleans’ run game, holding the Saints to 48 yards rushing at 2.3 per carry.
Meanwhile, the Patriots held the chargers to just 19 yards rushing in the divisional round. For the 2019 Super Bowl on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET, New England is a 2.5-point favorite in the Patriots vs. Rams. The team that puts together the most complete effort on both sides of the ball in the Atlanta Super Bowl will claim the title.
The New England Patriots are in their 11th Super Bowl, the ninth time with 66-year-old coach Bill Belichick and 41-year-old quarterback Tom Brady. It’s the fourth Super Bowl for the Los Angeles Rams. But it’s the Rams’ first appearance since 2002 when Brady and the Patriots beat them 20-17.
Was that the greatest conference championship Sunday ever? Both title games went to overtime, the first time that has happened. And for just the fourth time since the merger, both road teams won. So, it’s the NFC champion Los Angeles Rams facing the AFC champion New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. It’s the third time Atlanta hosts the NFL title game but first in that spectacular stadium.
