Super Bowl LIII - New England Patriots v Los Angeles Rams Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

Greetings, Raider Nation! Welcome to Super Bowl Sunday, the culmination of the 2018-2019 NFL season. Today’s game, live from Robotic Butthole Stadium in Atlanta, will of course feature the Los Angeles Rams taking on the perennial AFC Champion New England Patriots.

Both these teams were the #2 seed in their respective conferences, and both defeated the 1-seeds on the road in the conference championship games to make it to this game. Can young hotshot coach Sean McVay and Jared Goff lead the Rams to their second Super Bowl title and first since 1999, or will the Final Boss of the NFL, Bill Belichick, help get Tom Brady his sixth Super Bowl ring, which would be the most ever?
