The Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots will face off in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, Feb. 3 in Atlanta.

New England quarterback Tom Brady returns to the big game for the ninth time in his 19-year career. With Brady, the Patriots have won five Super Bowls since the 2001 regular season.

While the Rams don't have a player with a similar Super Bowl record, their staff features one of the NFL's longest-tenured coaches—Wade Phillips. During his two seasons with the Rams, Phillips has served as Los Angeles' defensive coordinator. This season is the veteran coach's 41st in the NFL.

Phillips has worked as either a head coach or defensive coordinator in the NFL for 36 years of his coaching career. After becoming the Denver Broncos' defensive coordinator in 2014, Phillips and the Broncos won Super Bowl 50 over the Carolina Panthers the next season.

The Broncos' impressive defense sacked Panthers quarterback Cam Newton six times and allowed only one offensive touchdown in the 24–10 victory.

Phillips never reached the Super Bowl as a head coach.
