Super Bowl 53: Start Time, Odds, Announcers, and More

Super Bowl 53: Start Time, Odds, Announcers, and More

There's no telling what will happen in Super Bowl LIII - unless you listen to The Post's staff of football writers.

The Patriots were themselves one-point underdog when they upset the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX, while the Seahawks were in a similar position a year earlier.

Tom Brady, #12 of the New England Patriots warms up during Super Bowl LIII practice at Georgia Tech Brock Practice Facility on January 31 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Rams have more physical talent, but they seem as if they are a year way.

Groundhog doesn't see his shadow, predicting early spring
Luckily, Punxsutawney Phil is about to tell us if spring will be coming early or if we'll have to endure six more weeks of winter. So, is it early spring or more winter forecast? The first official trek to Gobbler's Knob was made February 2, 1887.


Gronkowski has appeared more upbeat during the Super Bowl lead up, joking with reporters about his retirement while having that big Gronk smile that was missing for most of the season plastered across his face. Will the Rams be able to take down the Patriots dynasty and close a chapter on a book they opened almost two decades ago?

The New England Patriots tight end was a common sight on the team's injury report throughout the season, being listed with ankle and back ailments for the majority of the campaign. The Rams, whose past two Super Bowl trips were representing St. Louis in 2000 and '02, have four players who have gotten to the big game. If the Patriots can keep Aaron Donald and the pass rush from harassing Tom Brady, the score could be more lopsided than this prediction. If the line plays the way it did in Kansas City, the Patriots will win this game.
