Everything you need to know about Super Sunday
The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will meet in Super Bowl LIII (aka Super Bowl 53, or 2019 Super Bowl) on Sunday, Feb. 3 in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. This will be the seventh time the Super Bowl features a rematch. These two teams met in Super Bowl XXXVI back in 2002 as Bill Belichick and Tom Brady won their first Lombardi Trophy by knocking off the heavily favored Rams (then in St. Louis) and the "Greatest Show on Turf" 20-17 in the Superdome in New Orleans.
Much has changed since then, as Belichick and Brady are now making their ninth Super Bowl appearance and the 11th in Patriots' franchise history. A win would tie New England with Pittsburgh for the most Lombardi Trophies (six).
For the Rams, it's their fourth Super Bowl appearance, but the first for a team from Los Angeles since the Raiders beat the Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII way back in 1984. A victory for the Rams would even their Super Bowl record at 2-2 while exacting a bit of revenge for what happened 17 years ago.
While the teams and many other details have yet to be determined, it's never too early to start making your Super Sunday plans. Whether you're curious about past Super Bowls, purchasing tickets, or how and when to watch the game, we’ve got you covered with all of the information and links you need.
