Wade Phillips and the Los Angeles Rams’ protection held the largest quarterback of all time, Tom Brady, to 13 factors in the Large Bowl, but it wasn’t enough.
The defensive coordinator did not bag the credit ranking deserved for repeatedly befuddling Brady for valuable of the contest with neatly-disguised coverages. Alas, Phillips’ squad fell to the Restful England Patriots 13-3 in Large Bowl LIII.
The 71-year-frail, who at sing ought to calm be one of many largest quotes in the NFL, became again in Texas on Wednesday evening as worn Oilers quarterback Dan Pastorini became named to the Houston Sports Hall of Standing.

Will left sort out Andrew Whitworth retire? Might per chance other veterans love Aqib Talib be valuable cap casualties? What’s the sort out the Todd Gurley explain? Will Jared Goff bounce again from a disastrous Large Bowl performance?
