The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will square off Sunday evening at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium for football's top prize. They're keeping Tom Brady upright and opening lanes for a versatile running game.

Super Bowl experience can't be avoided in this matchup. The post did not have a caption, but it did feature a three-slide panorama with a drawing from each of the Patriots' five Super Bowl victories. If Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, and Fowler live in the Patriots backfield, it will not be a fun night for New England.

Atlanta has spent the last two years planning for Super Bowl LIII, and so far, visitors from out of town seem pretty happy with the show A-T-L has put on. The Patriots held the Kansas City Chiefs' No. 1-ranked offense to just 290 net yards, and the Rams held the New Orleans Saints' No. 8-ranked offense to the exact same amount.

At +2.5, the Rams have the third-shortest odds of any underdog going into the Super Bowl since the turn of the Millennium. The Patriots, as we all know, are no strangers to the Super Bowl, while the Rams are being built beautifully and have a sizable window to win a championship-or-two.

They'll rely on quarterback Jared Goff and coach Sean McVay, the youngest Super Bowl head coach at 33.
