When the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams meet Sunday, Feb. 3, in Super Bowl LIII, it will be a rematch years in the making.

Both teams won road games in their respective conference championship games, setting the table for Super Sunday. The franchises played each other in Super Bowl XXXVI after the 2001 season, when the underdog Patriots won 20-17 over the Rams, who played in St. Louis at the time.

Below is a closer look at the two franchises.
