The L.A. Rams and New England Patriots Win Road, Overtime Title Tilts And Will Meet In The 53rd Super Bowl In 2 “Long, Hype Filled” Weeks In Atlanta, Georgia

January 21, 2019

Both road teams, the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots won overtime title games and will meet in the 53rd Super Bowl in Atlanta, two weeks hence.

The Rams, to be in their first Supe since they lost as big favorites to the Pats’ first title team in ’01, rallied from a (13-0) deficit and rode two incredibly clutch, long field goals by Greg Zuerlein, to a (26-23) win at New Orleans, vs the Saints.

In the later game, the incredibly great Tom Brady engineered a 75 yard, overtime, game winning touchdown drive, on which he hit three third down passes for first downs, that culminated in Rex Burkhead’s two yard, game winning touchdown play.

Burkhead also had a short touchdown run that put N.E. ahead (31-28), with 39 seconds to play.

It was just the 6th time in the 59 years of two title games, counting the AFL (’60-69), that both road teams won.

 

The Rams will be seeking their second L.A. title, the other in 1951. They also won titles as the Cleveland Rams in 1945 and as the St. Louis Rams in 1999.
