Who is playing in Super Bowl 53?

 

For the third consecutive year, the New England Patriots have made it to the biggest annual sporting event in the United States. The Patriots are the old-school champs who seem to have conquered Father Time and are everyone’s favourite villains.

 

There’s no one more famous and polarising than 41-year-old quarterback Tom Brady who has had his fair share of controversies. However, these haven’t stopped him from racking up titles, he is going for his 6th ring at Super Bowl 53. He is joined by a similar supporting cast that have been with him for years in Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski.

 

At Super Bowl LIII, they face the new-school stars from the Los Angeles Rams – coach Sean McVay, quarterback Jared Goff and possible the NFL’s best running back Todd Gurley.

 

These two sides last met at the 2001 Super Bowl where the Patriots defeated the Rams 20-17. Crazy to comprehend but Tom Brady also took part in that game 18 years ago and won MVP that year.

 

Who is singing the national anthem for Super Bowl 53?

 

R&B legend Gladys Knight is set to sing The Star Spangled Banner before the game.

 

Who is performing at the halftime show?

 

Maroon 5 are headlining the Super Bowl LIII show. The band are well known for hits such as “She Will Be Loved” and “Moves Like Jagger”. They’ll be joined by Travis Scott who recently polled 3rd in the Triple J Hottest 100 with “SICKO MODE” and Big Boi, who is best known for being a member of the hip hop duo Outkast.
