The first Sunday in February is always a good one. Accompanying the biggest football game of the year is wings, witty commercials, a explosive halftime show and more great food. This year for Super Bowl LIII, the New England Patriots led by quarterback Tom Brady face off against the Los Angeles Rams, who recently left St. Louis.

Despite beating the Rams two other times before the NFC Championship, the New Orleans Saints lost to the Rams 26-23. After no call was made when “Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell-Robey Coleman interfered with the pass-catcher to prevent a completion,” many Saints fans protested in the streets of New Orleans, La., according to the Bleacher Report.

Junior John Matthews is rooting for the Patriots and still holds some animosity toward the former St. Louis team.

“It’s great for them that they won off a bad call,” he said, sarcastically. “(The Saints) would have won the game.”

Even though his favorite team isn’t in the big game, Matthews is sure to pick up “a lot” of wings from Buffalo Wild Wings and enjoy the party with friends and family.

Up against the Rams is the most successful team in the league.The Patriots, with 10 Super Bowl appearances, defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship 37-31 overtime. Brady is a seasoned veteran to the Super Bowl festivities since entering the NFL in 2000.

“It’s hard to believe that this is my ninth time doing this,” Brady said after the game on Sunday, Jan. 20. “I remember it was a little bit smaller back in the day, the first time I did it.”

Despite being a former St. Louis Rams fan, senior Corrine Timmermann is supporting the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Feb. 3 because of the rapper Drake’s t-shirt conspiracy, which repped all four teams logos stacked on top of each other.

“Every team who’s been on top has won so far,” she said. “The Rams are at the very top so they will win.”
