Rams vs Patriots: Super Bowl LIII The Los Angles Rams will play the New England Patriots on Sunday, Feb. 3, 6:30 p.m. ET at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Rams are back in the Super Bowl for the first time since that meeting against the Patriots.
The Rams will represent the NFC after defeating the New Orleans Saints, 26-23, in overtime. The Patriots defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 37-31, in overtime to earn the right to represent the AFC. Rams-Patriots is the game that launched Brady into NFL superstardom 17 years ago when the Patriots pulled off a stunning upset of St. Louis, 20-17, to win their first ring.
The Super Bowl is hurtling towards us – read on to take in all of the details. The matchup will pit the upstart Los Angeles Rams, fresh off a move away from St. Louis, against regular Super Bowl visitors, the New England Patriots. With all of the media buzz honing in on the potential retirement of Brady and Gronk, the Rams will be eager to show the world that they’re nothing to discount even on the biggest stage.
This is about as healthy as two teams could be headed into a Super Bowl. The Rams entered the NFC title game and Patriots came to AFC title game. Both the Rams and the Patriots in their respective conference title games were healthy scratches. Los Angeles has the glitz, but New England has the legacy. Now, it’s time for the Rams and Patriots to meet and prove just who belongs as Super Bowl LIII champion.
