Alright football fans, it’s that time of the year – time for the biggest day in sports, the Super Bowl. The Big Game. The Colossal Showdown. The Sunday, Sunday, Sunday Rams fans have been waiting for since… well, the last time they played the Patriots in the Super Bowl back in 2002.
Now while we’re sure most of you, like us, are absolutely tired of seeing Tom Brady and Bill Belichick compete for yet another Lombardi Trophy, at the end of the day, it’s still the Super Bowl so we know you’ll be watching.
So in order to get you all even more excited for this Sunday’s matchup, we reached out to a handful of sports-savvy artists to see who they think will win it all this Sunday.
To see what members of Underoath, New Found Glory, August Burns Red, Real Friends, Memphis May Fire and more had to say about Super Bowl 53, be sure to look below. Afterward, make sure to tweet us @TheNoise and let us know who you have winning!
James Smith - Underoath
I have finally come to grips with the fact that Tom Brady, given a chance to win, will win no matter what. The next time the Patriots lose a Super Bowl, Tom Brady will not be on the roster. Nothing would bring me more joy than watching his remarkable athleticism come up short. So, here’s hoping for another blown call and true anarchy after this year’s game. Patriots 31 - Rams 27
Cyrus Bolooki - New Found Glory
I’m hoping for a classic, maybe even overtime, with another Greg Zuerlein field goal to win it for the Rams 27-24. Why? Because you should always root for the underdog, and, because one of the equipment managers for the Rams is a huge NFG fan!
JB Brubaker - August Burns Red
My money is on Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. I feel like the raw talent of a younger Rams team and coach will ultimately succumb to the wily fox and experience the Pats have on the big stage. I’m ultimately hoping for a close game that comes down to the wire, but I can’t bet against the Pats in this spot. Patriots 31-24
Matty Mullins - Memphis May Fire
Please God let the Rams destroy the Patriots. I’m hoping for a shutout but realistically I’m thinking Rams 31 - Pats 24.
Eric Haines - Real Friends
I predict that Real Friends will be the winner of the Super Bowl since avocados will be on sale for the big game. I will be filling a kiddie pool with guacamole and we will all dive head first into it with tortilla chips in hand. Also, we will be wearing those novelty beer hats with straws – except they will be filled with more guacamole. Real Friends defeats the Super Bowl 5,000 avocados to 0.
Ryan Kirby - Fit For A King
While I may not be the best to ask, since my preseason pick didn’t even make the playoffs, I am going to go with the Patriots. That pick really hurts me since I greatly dislike them but how can you go against Brady and Belichick? Score: 34-27 Pats
Telle Smith - The Word Alive
In a perfect world, the Patriots lose this game [and] I would love for it to be a close game. So I’m going to say 30-28 Rams.
Lou Miceli - Palisades
I’m going 30-27 Rams. Tom Brady is the GOAT but Nick Foles and my Eagles proved they could do it last year and with the kind of coach and team the Rams are, I believe someone can dethrone the Pats dynasty again. Brandon in our band would say otherwise. He’s a Pats fan.
Miguel Cardona - Sylar
My Super Bowl winner is the New England Patriots, final score 31-17. No one will stop Tom Brady and the Patriots! Year after year he proves why he’s the best of all time! I’m not a Pats fan but when someone’s in a zone you can’t deny it – just how you can’t deny a great song!
Cody Carson - Set It Off
As much as it pains me to say this because I’m such a fan of the underdog, I don’t see a scenario where the Patriots don’t win. Their team is 100% healthy, they’re in true Patriots [playoff] form. They’ve been in this position multiple times. Rams QB is young they have a great defense but that doesn’t usually matter against Tom Brady and Bill B. My prediction is that it’s Patriots by 10.
Andrew McGuire - Afterlife
If the Rams can sack Brady 5-6 times I think they’ll be able to torch them – but it is Tom Brady. So if he isn’t hit a lot, expect a close game. (Patriots still suck, go Dolphins) LA Rams 42-24
Fuck this Super Bowl. The Saints were robbed!
