Super Bowl LIII: Three Keys for the Los Angeles Rams

The time has come. Super Bowl LIII is upon us. Who will rise to the stardom of the NFL and be able to call themselves World Champions for the next year? Will it be the New England Patriots or the Los Angeles Rams? It is shaping up to be a fantastic game on paper. However, the paper does not win football games. What do the Rams need to do control this game and take home the Lombardi Trophy? Here are three keys for such a task.

Middle Pressure

Wade Philips needs to bring the pain to Tom Brady. The best way to do that is up the middle. The Rams need to have Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh in his face on every passing down. This will not allow Brady to step up in the pocket. It will also not allow him to set his feet on his throws. Thus, giving the secondary more opportunities for turnovers.

C.J. Anderson

I believe that Anderson is going to be the difference maker. He is running with a purpose. In addition, he seems to be a better fit for the offense at this point of the season. I am not saying that Todd Gurley is not important to this team because he is. Especially on passing downs. Nonetheless, this could be a game in which Anderson is in the spotlight.


The Super Bowl is the grandest stage of the NFL. Several of the members of the Los Angeles Rams have never been here before Sunday. Nerves will certainly be at their highest early. This team will need to whether those nerves and in the meantime, limit the turnovers. If they can do this, they have an excellent chance of walking out of the Mercedes-Benz Dome hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

The Los Angeles Rams are returning to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2002. Ironically, that game was against the New England Patriots as well.

How do you think the Los Angeles Rams will do in Super Bowl LIII? Leave a comment below.
