The New England Patriots will take on the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta, Georgia next Monday Australian time on what is the biggest day in American sport, the NFL Super Bowl 53.
The most enduring dynasty in NFL history, the Patriots have played in nine of the last 18 Super Bowls, taking home the silverware an impressive five times.
Led by legendary coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, the Patriots will hope they can turn back the clock 17 years to the day to their first ever Super Bowl win, which was ironically against their opponents, the Rams.
The Rams will be chasing their second Super Bowl win, after first tasting victory in 2000, and will be expecting big performances from star running back Todd Gurley and defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who some argue might be the best player in the sport at any position.
Maroon 5 will headline this year’s Halftime Show and will be joined by rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi. The Super Bowl Halftime Show is usually the most watched musical event of the year with more than 100 million viewers in the US alone last year.
The “Empress of Soul” Gladys Knight will perform the national anthem before kick-off.
