When: Sunday, February 3rd, 2019, 6:30 p.m. ET
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia
Who: Los Angeles Rams vs. New England Patriots
TV Coverage: CBS
For the top two teams in the National Football league, the long and grueling road ends February 3, 2019, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, home of the Falcons.
Super Bowl LIII is the final contest of the NFL professional football season and determines the league's annual champion. It is a annual championship game of the NFL between the National Football Conference (NFC) and American Football Conference (AFC) champions in a battle for the Lombardi Trophy.
The Super Bowl is the last step into gridiron greatness, and their one chance to be crowned World Champions.
The NFL betting action continues with the NFL Conference Championship games that will be played the following Sunday.
Then NFL take a break for their customary week off before the Super Bowl, but there is still football on the betting board with the NFL Pro Bowl. That will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii and will air on ESPN.
And then there were two! After a wild division round that saw some incredible plays and some incredibly bad officiating, the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will square off against one another in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, February 3, 2019 from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA. It’s a record twelfth overall Super Bowl appearance for the Pats who will be out to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers and hoist the Lombardi Trophy for a sixth time. The Rams will be gunning for their second overall Super Bowl title in this the franchise’s fifth overall appearance in the big game.
Los Angeles began its journey to Atlanta by taking down the Dallas Cowboys in the division round. While it wasn’t the greatest of showings, it was still good enough to pull out the 30-22 win and cover as touchdown favorites. Sean McVay got huge contributions from his ground attack to log his first ever playoff victory with Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson combining for 238 rushing yards and 3 TD. On the flipside, his defense did a tremendous job taking Ezekiel Elliott out of the game by holding him to 47 yards and 1 TD on 20 overall carries. His inability to run the pigskin make life that much harder for Dak Prescott who was forced to deal with Aaron Donald breathing down his neck all game long.
While the Rams NFC Championship Game win over the Saints is likely going to lead to any pass interference call - made or not made – eligible for review with instant replay, you can’t take the teams’ comeback win away from them. Lost in the madness of the non-call was the fact that LA battled back from a 13-0 first quarter deficit to make a game of it, and then still found a way to tie the game in regulation with only seconds remaining to give the team a shot in overtime. The defense came up with a huge interception of Drew Brees in the extra session, and then punched their ticket to LIII after Greg “The Leg” Zuerlein booted a 57 yard game winning field goal to earn Los Angeles the thrilling 26-23 outright win and cover as field goal underdogs.
New England had a much easier go of it in their home clash with a Los Angeles Chargers outfit that invaded Foxboro brimming with confidence after taking the wood to the Ravens in Baltimore the previous week. Led by a relentless rushing attack that piled up 155 yards and 4 TD, the Patriots seemingly had their way with Philip Rivers and company en route to logging the carefree 41-28 win and cover as 3.5 point favorites. The 13 point finalmargin of victory by no means expresses how dominant the AFC champs were after they took a 35-7 lead with them into halftime. As big a game his rushing attack had, Tom Brady still went on to throw for 343 yards and 1 TD!
The rematch with the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game will go down in history as one of the craziest semifinal matchups in league history. Not even an arctic blast was able to prevent New England from punching its ticket to the Super Bowl for the second time in the last three seasons to help solidify the argument of the Bill Belichick era being the most dominant to grace the gridiron. While points were held to a minimum through 3+ quarters, the floodgates opened in the fourth when both teams combined for 38 points much to the chagrin of under bettors. When you see the 37-31 final score, it looks like business as usual for a franchise that’s won countless close games in the past. That said, the football gods were most definitely smiling upon them after Dee Ford was caught lining up offside on a play that resulted in a turnover that would’ve won Kansas City the game. Unfortunately for Chiefs fans and bettors, it just wasn’t meant to be.
It begins and pretty much ends with the GOAT who will be gunning for a fifth Super Bowl MVP Award and seventh Super Bowl title. Love him or hate him, Tom Brady will no doubt go down in history as one of the greatest to ever play the game. Aqib Talib has been able to greatly improve the play of the Rams secondary since returning from injury, but he and his mates best bring their “A” game if LA is to make a game of this!
The Patriots really started to take off at the tail end of the season due to a punishing ground game. One of the main ingredients to that furious assault has been rookie Sony Michel whose been running with his hair on fire since Week 16. He’s churned out three 100+ yard rushing performances to go along with 6 TD in his last four games, and will be a focal point of the Pats’ offensive attack in LIII.
If Brady is the drink, Julian Edelman is the straw that stirs it. Every time the offense needs a big play, it always seems like Edelman rises to the occasion and comes up with the big snag. How many third and longs did he just convert in the AFC title game? Who knows what would’ve happened against the Chiefs had he miraculously not muffed that punt!
Gronk – does he really need an introduction?
On LA’s side of the ball, Jared Goff will get the call and the Rams will sorely need him to come up with a game in line with his play earlier in the season than at the tail end of it. The former California golden Bear has only thrown for 1 TD or less in six of his last seven starts. He’s also only surpassed the 300 yard passing threshold once during that stretch. More will be needed from him for the Rams to avenge that embarrassing loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI.
Is Todd Gurley injured or what? If he’s not, why is C.J. Anderson taking a bulk of the carries? No. 30 only rushed the pigskin four times against the Saints and was held to 10 yards and 2.5 yards per carry. He did however show a glimpse of greatness against the Cowboys the week prior rushing for 115 yards and 1 TD but took a back seat to Anderson for a majority of the second half. Hopefully the 14 days in between games allows him to heal up once and for all.
Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods are the standout wide receivers for the Rams, but it’s highly possible Aaron Donald makes an even bigger impact in this game. New England possesses one of the best pass protecting front walls in the game. It will be up to No. 99 to get in the backfield and disrupt what the Brady Bunch ultimately tries to do. He’s gone without a sack in the playoffs but tallied 20.5 of them in the regular season. Look for his pass rushing abilities to play a key role in how this game turns out.
