2018 AFC Playoffs

Patriots quickly turn attention to Super Bowl showdown with Rams

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Looks like Julian Edelman won’t be selling too many #BetAgainstUs shirts over the next two weeks.

While the Rams opened as slight favorites in the wake of Sunday’s dramatic AFC title contest, the line quickly swung in the Patriots’ favor, as New England was a narrow favorite as of late Sunday night/Monday morning.

It’ll be a unique challenge for this New England team, which last faced the Rams near the end of the 2016 season. That woeful group, led by Jeff Fisher and Jared Goff (who was a rookie that season) was steamrolled by the Patriots, 26-10. Remember this display by Fisher?
