Super Bowl LIII is a little over 24 hours away. The Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots are putting on their final preparations to put on a wonderful show. We here at IroniqMedia are doing the same. We give you some of the finest and most complete coverage around the game. With Super Bowl LIII being ready to go down, it is time to give out our staff predictions. Several writers and guests have provided you with who they think will win and why. Therefore, without further ado, we get to our picks.
Tony “Webboy” Lagotta – Owner
I’m stuck in a position where I have no choice but to root on the Patriots, ya see back in August I made a bet with the 8BitBros on Superbowl predictions. I chose Saints vs Patriots. So I now root for the Pats. With that in mind, I do believe the Patriots can pull off another one. The Key to the game for the Patriots is to control Darnold. Control Aaron Donald without double teaming him. Containing him at the line will give Tom Brady that much more to assess the field. And we know the outcome of that. Expect Edelman To have a big day along with a run offense that should stack yards over C.J.Anderson. Patriots 38 Rams 31.
Stephen “Wren” Golubieski – COO/Publisher
I see the Rams defensive line getting to Brady early knocking him off his game. With a heavy dosing of blitz’s the Rams could most definitely control the tempo of the game. On the offensive side of the ball using the run game to set up quick passes to move the ball. Jared Goff should be able to do just enough to give the Rams the win. Rams 28 – Pats 21.
Sean Naylor – Editor-in-Chief
The Los Angeles Rams have what it takes to take the vaunted dynasty of the New England Patriots. With pressure up the middle from Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, they should harass Tom Brady. The offense will control the ball with a steady dose of C.J. Anderson and Todd Gurley. Rams win 38-34.
Phil Naegely – SEO Coordinator
New England Patriots win due to experience. Their quarterback, head coach and many of their weapons on both sides of the ball have been in this game before. The Rams have a young head coach who is in his first Super Bowl in charge. Patriots win the offensive game, 31-17.
Jeremy Grace – Staff Writer
Based off of experience and the Patriots have been to this stage before I think they will win. The Rams will need more time before they can win the big game and Tom Brady will beat this defense in the passing game. The x-factor to me this year is the Patriots run game with Sony Michel and he is key for New England to win. New England Patriots over Los Angeles Rams 38-31.
Jason Hickson – Staff Writer
I believe it will come down to defense and the Rams have an outstanding d-line and a secondary to slow Tom Brady down. Rams 31 – Patriots 28.
Anthony Fiuza – Staff Writer
Tom Brady and Gronk team up for the final time and pick apart the middle of LA’s defense late in the game.
Rams’ QB Jared Goff throws two picks as the contest grows old after playing well throughout. Patriots top Rams 30-27.
Corey Decker – Staff Writer
Both offenses have the ability to put up a lot of points … but New England‘s defense is better out of the two. The Rams may have star power, but they also rank 19th in points allowed while the Pats are at 10th. Defense and a pissed off Tom Brady wins championships. Patriots: 35-21.
Dan McLellan – Fantasy/DFS Writer
The Los Angeles Rams will defeat the New England Patriots in a thriller. Rams RB Todd Gurley will be the MVP with a multi TD performance and over 150 combined yards. Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett will exploit is CB matchup against Marcus Peters for a score. Pats TE Rob Gronkowski will also find the end zone. However, the game will ultimately be decided by DT Aaron Donald sack of QB Tom Brady on a 4th down conversion attempt late in the game. Rams 33 – Patriots 27.
Joe Branham – Rams Showcase
Once the game kicks off, the experience narrative can be thrown out. At that point, it’s just another football game. The Los Angeles Rams have more firepower than the Patriots and once they start to utilize that firepower, they’ll be able to control the game. Rams 27 – Patriots 24.
Brian Bosarge – Deep Fried Draft
Jared Goff has struggled in the back half of this season. However, the Rams QB is due for a big game. I expect play action will be a huge part of the Rams offensive success. Goff will throw for 240 yards and two scores. Greg Zuerlein will kick two fourth-quarter field goals to seal the deal. Rams 27 – Patriots 20.
Derrick Jones – Rat Pack Sports Show
This game will be a very intense game. Early on the Rams be successful. However, as the game leads on, the Pats’ veteran leadership and coaching will be the difference. The Patriots will win the game late on a FG. The Patriots will find a way to slow down the Rams running game and make the Rams one dimensional. Patriots will have success running the ball with Sony Michel playing a ball control style of game. Patriots 27 – Rams 24
