Hall of Famer Deion Sanders picks Patriots to beat the Rams in the Super Bowl
It is officially that time of year for the NFL when literally everyone begins asking, “So, who ya got?” Kicking off the annual tradition this time around, former NFL defensive back Deion Sanders has already gone on record with his Super Bowl LIII pick.
Shocker! It’s not the hottest of takes.
“I don’t know how we even have the audacity to ask this question,” Sanders stated on a recent episode of FOX Sports’ Undisputed. “How can you pick in a one-game match against Tom Brady? And Bill Belichick Are you kidding me?”

While the quarterback Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots will almost certainly enter the February 3rd matchup in Atlanta as the betting favorites to once again win it all, perhaps the up-and-coming Los Angeles Rams deserve at least a little bit of credit.
Granted, the Rams reached the Super Bowl thanks in part to a blown call by the referees, but the high-powered offensive attack led by head coach Sean McVay will surely give the always unpredictable Patriots defense a few problems along the way.
One thing is for sure, though, Super Bowl LIII will feature more than a few fireworks as Brady and the Patriots will be seeking the heralded franchise’s second title in the last three seasons. Despite coming up short in 2017-18, the Patriots still managed to reach the Super Bowl before losing to the Philadelphia Eagles.
On the other hand, the Rams are equally stacked on both sides of the football, making Sanders’ boastful statement perhaps a little controversial.
