The New England Patriots are back in the Super Bowl and face the Rams, the same team they defeated in 2002 to win their first Super Bowl. 17 years later, the Patriots have been the constant in the Super Bowl.
The Los Angeles Rams finished the season with a 13-3 record and defeated the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints to earn a Super Bowl birth. Los Angeles hasn't been perfect however and some of those faults have cost them some games.
The Los Angeles Rams head into their first Super Bowl since 2002 when they lost to the New England Patriots. The Rams have been a top team in the NFL the past two seasons and boast one of the top offenses in the league. In order to defeat New England, they'll need more than just the offense.

2018 was the second season under 32-year-old head coach Sean McVay for the Los Angeles Rams. McVay replaced veteran head coach Jeff Fisher after Fisher led the Rams to a 4-12 record in 2015. Since then, the Rams are 24-8 in the regular season, have appeared in the playoffs in back-to-back seasons, and will make their first Super Bowl appearance since 2001.
