The Patriots are in the Super Bowl for the third straight year and a record 11th time overall. They're looking for their sixth win, which would tie the Steelers for the most ever, while their opponent, the Rams, is looking for their second franchise title and first as the Los Angeles Rams.

Tom Brady and the Patriots offense, which has put up 78 points in two playoff games, faces a Rams defense that ranked an underwhelming 20th in points allowed this season but is nonetheless loaded with dangerous playmakers, led by Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh on the defensive line and Marcus Peters and former Patriot Aqib Talib in the secondary.

Look for Sony Michel and Julian Edelman to continue to play huge roles for the Pats. In the first two playoff games of his NFL career, Michel has had 53 carries for 242 yards and five touchdowns. Edelman, meanwhile, has 16 catches for 247 yards over the last two games.

On the other sideline, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley and former Patriot Brandin Cooks are key pieces in the Rams' high-powered offensive attack that ranked second in the NFL with 32.9 points per game in the regular season. They've averaged 28 points per game in the playoffs and have been led by a ground game that's run for 350 yards in the playoffs, with C.J. Anderson actually getting more carries and yards than Gurley.

In the passing game, Cooks and Josh Reynolds are coming off of big performances against the Saints in the NFC championship game. Cooks caught seven passes on eight targets for 107 yards, while Reynolds caught four passes on seven targets for 74 yards.

A win Sunday would give the Patriots their third Super Bowl in the last five years and a record sixth overall for Brady and Bill Belichick. The Rams won their only Super Bowl in franchise history during their stint in St. Louis in 1999 when they beat the Titans. They got back to the Super Bowl two years later and were heavily favored, but lost to the underdog Patriots on Adam Vinatieri's last-second field goal that launched the dynasty.
