For the third straight year, the New England Patriots are in the Super Bowl. After beating the Kansas City Chiefs, 37-31, in overtime in the AFC Championship game Sunday, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have the Patriots in position to win their second Super Bowl in three years and third in five years.
And for Washington Redskins fans, there will be a familiar face on the opposing sideline trying to stop the Patriots from adding another title to their already extensive resume. In just his second season with the Los Angeles Rams, Sean McVay has his team playing in the Super Bowl against the Patriots. The Rams beat the New Orleans Saints, 26-23, also in overtime Sunday in the NFC Championship game.
Led by the 32-year-old former Redskins offensive coordinator, the Rams are in their first Super Bowl since 2001, when the franchise was still in St. Louis. The Rams have not won an NFL title in Los Angeles since 1951, 16 years prior to the Super Bowl era.
The 2019 Super Bowl is also a rematch of the title game from the 2001-2002 season, when the Patriots beat the then-St. Louis Rams, 20-17.
The AFC champion Patriots and the NFC champion Rams will face off in Super Bowl LIII on February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
