On Sunday, Feb. 3, Super Bowl LIII will take place in Atlanta, Georgia. The Super Bowl is considered the biggest game in all of sports as the champion of the football season will finally be decided.

One of the teams is not new to competing for the Lombardi Trophy, the New England Patriots have simply dominated football in the 2000 era. They have placed either first or second in their division, the AFC East, ever since 2001. Since 2001, they’ve won 5 Super Bowls, 9 AFC Championship games and 16 AFC East Division Titles. One of the biggest reasons for this continuity of success is their quarterback, Tom Brady. Brady has won the MVP 3 times, as well as Super Bowl MVP 4 times. These stats and his big playoff comebacks, are set to make him a first ballot Hall of Famer and one, if not the, best quarterback of all time.

And of course the other team, the Los Angeles Rams. Although they have not been as successful in football over the past couple of decades, they’re ready to go all in, in this year’s Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Rams are back in Los Angeles, since leaving St. Louis in 2016. They have not been back to Los Angeles since leaving in 1994. The Rams made it clear that they were going all in, all year long. With the addition of Brandin Cooks and Ndamukong Suh, as well as other assets they’ve already retained, such as MVP caliber running back Todd Gurley, MVP caliber defensive fackle,  Aaron Donald, and rising star quarterback, Jared Goff. All of which are under the age of 30 and have bright futures in the NFL ahead of them.

This isn’t the first time these two teams have linked up in the Super Bowl. This dates all the way back to Super Bowl 36 in 2002, where the Patriots came out on top, but things have changed. The Rams are back in LA with different players and different styles, but one thing remains the same, Tom Brady who’s looking to take down the Rams this Sunday.
