The Super Bowl is this Sunday. That will mean a half hour dedicated to drawn-out ceremonies, a national anthem, and lengthy player introductions. It's become a regular motif for big sports events, but that's beside the point. We're here to talk about these two teams:
Now here's the deal with my version. The Super Bowl match-up features players from the 1990-1991 season, which means you're getting Steve Grogan under center instead of Tom Brady for the Patriots and Jim Everett under center for the Rams instead of Jared Goff. Yes, I am playing Tecmo Super Bowl for the NES, in case you're wondering.
Anyways, the game itself was wild. The first quarter alone had five turnovers (three interceptions and two fumbles). Five! The Patriots led at the half, 14-10, but the Rams responded with a touchdown reception from Henry Ellard. The Rams went on to dominate the third quarter, outscoring New England by a count of 10-0. It would have been 13, but a missed field goal gave New England new life instead. Grogan became Brady, leading the Patriots to a 21-20 lead with two minutes left on a touchdown pass to some guy named Allen. But Jim Everett connected with Ellard with a minute left to give the Rams a 27-21 lead. Everyone in the world sans the New England region and New Orleans rejoiced as Los Angeles defeated the vaunted Patriots team by that same score. Will the Rams win Super Bowl 53 the same way or will New England continue their march towards the greatest dynasty of all time?
My life! Food, sports, school. It's what it is!
