SUNDAY night sees the culmination of the NFL season, with Super Bowl LIII between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots.

This will be the first time in 17 years that the Rams will contest the Super Bowl, while the Tom Brady-led Patriots, will be taking part in their fourth in the last five years.

This year’s game takes place in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, which is the home of the Atlanta Falcons.

The Patriots can never be under-estimated having adapted and overcome early season wobbles to win their division for the ninth consecutive year.

Head coach Bill Belichik has most of his stars available in tight end Rob Gronkowski, line backer Dont’a Hightower, running back Sony Michel and wide receiver Julian Edelman.

Meanwhile, second year head coach Sean McVay has worked wonders in his short time in charge of the Rams, taking them from a under-performing team in 2016 to Super Bowl finalists this year.

Seen as an Offensive guru, McVay has former first overall draft pick, quarterback Jared Goff, and together with running back Todd Gurley and defensive linemen Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, this team has all the potential to bring the Lombardi Trophy back to LA.

A few experts at Swindon’s own America Football team, Swindon Storm, have given their views on Sunday night’s big game.

It will be a shootout and possibly Tom Brady’s last game will be decided by the Rams’ elite special teams unit. The Rams also have a better defence than the Pats.

Teddy Stubbington

Rams 35 Patriots 17

I FEEL good energy from the Rams, and with the Patriots wanting to redeem themselves from last year’s defeat, LA will be fuelled up and roaring on offence.

Will Jones

Rams 24 Patriots 21

Sean McVay is a genius and the Rams defence has gotten increasingly better during the play-offs. Also, the Pats lost wide receiver Josh Gordon in December. This is a close game, because both defences are evenly matched.

Ciaran Hanks

Rams 28 Patriots 17

The Rams offence will dominate and the Pats defence won’t be able to cope. However, the Pats’ pass play with Julian Edelman will be get the better of Aquib Talib.

Harry MacMartin

Rams 10 Patriots 35

The New Orleans Saints were robbed in defeat to the Rams in the last game and they were the only team who were actually going to beat the Pats.

Brad Duff

Rams 27 Patriots 34

Although LA’s offence has performed better than that of the Pats this season, the lack of experience of Sean McVay and Jared Goff will show against the Tom Brady-Bill Belichik combination. Both defences are lacking, making it a very close, high-scoring game.

  • SWINDON Storm’s adult team are once again preparing for another exciting season of their own as they gear up to take part in the National League.

In 2018, the club battled hard in a new division, taking on teams from Bournemouth, Portsmouth and Hastings.
