Devin McCourty may retire if Patriots win Super Bowl

Tom Brady fires up the crowd

He will be rooting against them in Super Bowl LIII.

The Los Angeles Rams are going to have their hands full in the Super Bowl with the New England Patriots' offensive weapons.

The Rams' Nickell Robey-Coleman talks to reporters during the Super Bowl's Opening Night event Monday in Atlanta.

Goff didn't hesitate to answer. "But I think that he's definitely not the same quarterback he was", Robey-Coleman says.

"I don't know for sure, man". The meeting between the two franchises comes 17 years after Brady lead the Pats to victory over the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVIl - a matchup that launched a dynasty in New England that's still going strong almost two decades later.

And while Brady's stats may have dipped in some categories this season compared to previous years, he sees enough positives to feel he can compete for a long time to come. "Now with that being said, if the Rams can stop the running game, and double Edelman, I think they will have a chance".

McCourty, 31, is finishing his ninth season with the Patriots and is an eight-time captain.

The teams landed in Atlanta and will practice this week before squaring off in the Super Bowl on Sunday in the NFL's main event. You show me anybody that's great in anything they do, I'll show you somebody that's persevered, demonstrated that mental toughness to overcome some obstacles and adversity.

"He's still doing the same things; he's just not doing as much of it. And sometimes, it's not the sharpest". And I think a large part of specifically when you talk about last week's game was a result of some of the things in terms of the play selection. "I'm not taking nothing away from him; I just said his age". The Patriots, led by Tom Brady, dominated the first half of the game with a score of 17-3.

On the Patriots sideline, former Minnesota wide receiver and kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson will be participating in his first ever Super Bowl.
