5 final questions surrounding Los Angeles Rams heading into Super Bowl 53

After all of the hype, predictions, smack talk, and cold takes from talking heads, the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams finally will kick off for Super Bowl LIII on Sunday night in Atlanta.

In Super Bowl XXXVI, the Patriots clinched their first Super Bowl title with a 20-17 win over the St. Louis Rams, before beating the Carolina Panthers 32-29 in 2004 and the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21 a year later.

But for that story to endure, New England needs opponents.

On the eve of the big game, Bruno Mars put on an incredible performance at the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest.
