The biggest game in American football will be played this Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia when the Los Angeles Rams will take on the New England Patriots.

The Patriots are no strangers to the Super Bowl, as this year’s will be their third consecutive appearance. The Rams, however, have failed to make an appearance since the year 2000.

The Patriots, led by 41 year-old Quarterback Tom Brady, have compiled a record of 11-5 so far this season, their most recent victory coming from the AFC Playoff game where the Pats ended Andy Reid’s hopes of taking Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1970. So far this season, Brady has completed 29 touchdown passes and thrown for a total of 4,355 yards. Boasting the best offense and 8th best defense in the NFL, Bill Belichick and his Patriots are sure to give the Rams a run for their money.

The Rams underwent a dramatic change prior to the 2019-2019 season, returning to Los Angeles after a 20-year stint as the St. Louis Rams. Orchestrating the team’s offense is 24 year-old Quarterback Jared Goff, who joined the Rams in 2016 after being drafted as the #1 first round draft pick from UC Berkeley. So far this season, Goff has completed an impressive 32 touchdown passes and thrown for 4,688 total yards. When he’s not throwing the ball, expect the Rams’ running backs to break through the lines and grind their way up the field.

Both teams faced tough opponents in their respective conference championship games. The Patriots faced the Chiefs in a dramatic game that finished 37-31, ending the Chiefs’ hopes of a “Cinderella” season. Meanwhile, the Rams faced Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints and defeated them 26-23.

This being said, it is clear that both teams are well-prepared for this matchup. The Rams are looking to end off a fantastic season while the Patriots are looking to redeem themselves after losing last year’s Super Bowl to the Philadelphia Eagles, who defeated the Pats 41-33.

Both sides have their own arsenal of weapons, so expect to see end to end action throughout all four quarters, with the QB’s leading their respective offenses. And if the game ends up going into overtime, don’t be too surprised.
