Rams’ Super Bowl opponent: The dynastic New England Patriots

SUPER BOWL LIII Rams (15-3) vs. New England Patriots (13-5) Date: Sunday, Feb. 3, 3:30 p.m., CBS/2 Last meeting: In then-coach Jeff Fisher’s penultimate game, the Rams played in chilly New England on Dec. 4, 2016, and had a fairly dismal showing in a 26-10 loss. Coincidentally, that game took place one week after the Rams suffered a blowout loss at New Orleans. The Patriots probably can’t take much from that game, because the Rams clearly were headed nowhere. The Patriots led 17-0 at halftime an...
