Patriots vs Rams: that the Patriots have rookie running back Sony The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams will face off on Super Bowl Sunday inside Atlanta’s dazzling $2 billion Mercedes Benz Stadium. In some ways, it’s the real star of the big game.

It’s fun to see them having fun, Belichick added. They’ve earned it. You’ve gotta earn your way here there is no other way to get here. So it’s very satisfying to see them having fun and enjoying each other and having the camaraderie that comes with getting to the game.
The Rams held a short walk-through but then had a similar outing.
I feel really good, Rams coach Sean McVay told the pool reporter.I think they understand the time where they can enjoy themselves right now, but when we’re doing football related things, locking into the game plan, they’ve done a great job. And I think that’s kind of been this team’s personality really this whole season. It’s a good balance; they enjoy themselves, but not at the expense of allowing it to affect our focus and concentration.
