The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams both won thrilling conference championship games on the road and have secured a date in Super Bowl LIII. That game will be played February 3 in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and both teams have nearly two full weeks to prepare for the game. The Super Bowl will be played on Sunday, Feb 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams faced each other with the Lombardi Trophy on the line, they had to face the media during Monday’s Super Bowl Opening Night.
When Will Super Bowl LIII Be Played?
Super Bowl Sunday is on February 3rd, 2019.
Event: Super Bowl 2019
Team: Patriots vs Rams
Date: Sunday, Feb 3, 2019
Game Time: 6:30 p.m. ET
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.
This is quite an opportunity for second-year head coach Sean McVay of the Rams, who will test his skills against New England’s Bill Belichick. McVay is looked at as a young genius on the sidelines because of his ability to build an explosive and creative offense. He turned the Rams into a playoff team in his first year as head coach, and he has brought them an NFC championship in his second year.
The 32-year-old has a chance to lead his team to a Super Bowl title as he challenges the pre-eminent coach in the game. Belichick and the Patriots will be playing in their ninth Super Bowl and attempting to win their sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy. The 66-year-old may already be recognized as the greatest coach in NFL history, and it’s difficult to dispute that based on the accomplishments on his resume.
If Belichick is not the best coach of all time, he walks shoulder-to-shoulder with leaders and innovators that include Lombardi, Paul Brown, Don Shula and Bill Walsh. McVay knows he is going to test his skills against one of the greatest minds in the history of the game, and Belichick is coming off a brilliant game-planning performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
The Chiefs helped Belichick and New England reach their goal by winning the opening coin toss and deferring until the second half. The Patriots took the opening kickoff and held the ball for more than eight minutes, and they scored the opening touchdown of the game when rookie running back Sony Michel pounded the ball into the end zone on a one-yard blast.
