Super Bowl LIII Preview

The Patriots hold a commanding edge in the experience department: Tom Brady alone has been to more Super Bowls (nine) than all the Rams put together have (five).

Of the 53 players on New England’s roster, 38 have been to the big game, with 27 logging multiple appearances.

Four Rams have been there. Los Angeles defensive back Aqib Talib went to two Super Bowls as a member of the Denver Broncos, losing one after the 2013 season before winning it all two years later. Rams running back C.J. Anderson was Talib’s teammate in that victorious season.

“Me and Aqib, I think we’ve stressed harping on what this week will be like so much and everything is unfolding like we said it would be,” Anderson said, according to Patriots.com.

Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks played briefly in last year’s Super Bowl as a member of the Patriots, making one catch for 23 yards, but he sustained a concussion early and didn’t return. Rams defensive back Sam Shields won a ring with the Green Bay Packers after the 2010 season, his rookie year.

“Throughout the week, it gives them an advantage,” Rams offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth said, per Patriots.com. “They kind of know this week. They know when things are a little anxious, or when to turn it on and get ready to play. They probably have a process and plan for the week.”

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman made a similar observation.

“I think you get to focus more on football (because of the know-how),” Edelman said, according to the Associated Press.

“Fortunately, I’ve played in a couple of these and you get to refine your routine and it allows you to think about football. It allows you to think about the Los Angeles Rams and what they’re doing and how they are on defense and special teams and (Johnny) Hekker being a quarterback back there as a punter, that’s what it allows you to do because you have a little experience with that. But that’s it.”

Los Angeles center John Sullivan downplayed the experience deficit, however, citing the Rams’ move from St. Louis to the West Coast ahead of the 2016 season.

“Look at what we’ve done in the past few years relocating, makeshift locker rooms, weight rooms, being adaptable. I don’t think anyone is fazed by any trip anywhere,” Sullivan said, per Patriots.com. “I think we’re fine. Everyone is focused on winning.”
