Jared Goff praises the Rams' resilience before the Super Bowl

It appears there's some New England Patriots fatigue going on.

"On behalf of the team and the organization, we'd love to invite you and your son, Josh", Cooks told Garcia.

Cooks told Garcia that the team needed to see him there in the stands, cheering them on, and reminded him that he now had to surprise his son with the news. He keeps our locker room in tip-top shape. The Patriots, meanwhile, are 5-3 in Super Bowls but 3-5 against the spread, with every game being decided by 8 points or less. "I just felt like it would be special for him to see that he is part of this success, as well, and I wanted him to be able to be at the Super Bowl with his son and enjoy it".

In just one season, teammates have come to know this as the type of person Cooks is.

Considering Rams QB Jared Goff was only seven years old when Tom Brady won his first Super Bowl in 2002, Dryer says the Pats hold a distinctive edge when it comes to experience. You've got to ride the waves of the Super Bowl, no matter which way it goes... "It's a blessing to be around you guys, for one, and to have this, and be with you guys at something so special?"
