ATLANTA, GA (MetroSource-WSAU) -- The matchup for Super Bowl LII in Atlanta is set. The Rams and Patriots will play for the Lombardi Trophy one week from Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, pitting rising star quarterback Jared Goff of LA against five-time Super Bowl champ Tom Brady of New England.
Rex Burkhead's two-yard TD run capped the opening drive of overtime as the Patriots beat the Chiefs 37-31 in the AFC Championship Game in Kansas City. Leading 28-24 in regulation, KC had a potential game-sealing interception wiped out by a neutral-zone infraction.
Greg Zuerlein's 57-yard field goal in overtime gave the Rams a 26-23 win in the NFC Championship Game at New Orleans. His 48-yarder tied it in regulation after the refs missed a pass interference penalty that could have allowed the Saints to run out the clock.
