Super Bowl LIII: Why Clay Matthews Trusts On Patriots Will Beat Rams?
The Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots have quite a bit in common.
Between the powerful offenses and parsimonious resistances, we could be in store for a remarkable confrontation when the two groups meet in Super Bowl LIII. Clay Matthews knows this great, as the Green Bay Packers tumbled to both the Rams and Patriots in the regular season.
Matthews won’t be incorporating conference bias into his Super Bowl forecast, however. The 10-year linebacker has been around the NFL enough to know exactly how extreme the Patriots are to beat on the huge stage.
“The amount of experience they’ve had and how they’ve been able to stay on top is truly remarkable,” Matthews told AOL.com. “Even in the losses they’ve had in the Super Bowl, they haven’t been blowouts.”
“It’s always hard to bet against them when it’s in the Super Bowl.”
Matthews isn’t the only one in his forecast. Individual NFC North star Kyle Rudolph, who’s seen the Patriots play in the Super Bowl in everything except three of his eight NFL seasons, shared similar sentiments when making his pick.
With respect to Green Bay, new head mentor Matt LaFleur will hope to convey a jolt to the historic franchise and return the Pack to championship glory.
