Where is 2019 Super Bowl: Location, TV channel, streaming, kickoff time, everything to know about Patriots vs. Rams, Super Bowl LIII score predictions: ESPN staff picks Patriots-Rams

 

Ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams, Sky Sports’ NFL Editor David Currie guides you through the madness of media week in Atlanta Rarely do the details that we think matter end up mattering. While our attention will be on Tom Brady and Jared Goff, Belichick and Sean McVay will be looking at the smaller, more volatile details. Individually, these details are unlikely to swing the tide of the game quite like Butler’s interception did, but together, they can divert the flow of the matchup. These are the potential X factors that could decide Super Bowl LIII.

The showpiece finale to the NFL season has, certainly in recent years, provided us with drama and excitement of the highest order, but the chaos isn’t just limited to the events inside the stadium come game day. Both the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots went on the road and won overtime thrillers in their conference title games to earn their spot in the Super Bowl. Now, the Rams and Patriots will square off on Sunday for the ultimate NFL prize in Super Bowl LIII.

Mere hours after facing the media on opening night, the Rams players are back in front of the cameras, this time at a slightly more (only slightly) civilised session, sans screaming fans and silly costumes. And, it takes just one lap of the hotel conference centre in which the media session is being held to see Rob’s still strong ties to the league.

As he circled the room, handshakes (and the odd bear hug) were served out with increasing regularity, including one to 20.5-strong sack machine – and likely NFL defensive player of the year – Aaron Donald. It was the moment to capture, unless you happened to accidentally film a one-second video of your pocket instead. The first fumble of the Super Bowl. How could Super Bowl LIII play out on Sunday in Atlanta? “Madden NFL 19” takes a shot at predicting all four quarters of the game, including the game’s winner and final score, in this simulation.
