The Super Bowl returns to Atlanta for the first time in 19 years in 2019.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the new home of the Atlanta Falcons, will host Atlanta's third NFL championship game on February 3, 2019.

The last Super Bowl in Atlanta featured one of the most dramatic final plays in Super Bowl history, as Mike Jones of the St. Louis Rams tackled Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kevin Dyson right before the goal line to give the Rams a 23-16 victory at the Georgia Dome in February 2000.

Six years before the Rams held on to beat the Titans, the Dallas Cowboys won their second consecutive Super Bowl over the Buffalo Bills by a 30-13 score in 1994.

In that game, the Cowboys outscored the Bills 24-0 in the second half. The loss was the fourth in a row for the Bills in the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl LIII could witness another title defense in Atlanta, as the Philadelphia Eagles are expected to be in the hunt next season to defend their Super Bowl LII title.

Super Bowl LIII Prediction

Philadelphia over Jacksonville

It's hard to believe the Philadelphia Eagles won't be back in the Super Bowl with most of their roster coming back and quarterback Carson Wentz returning from his ACL injury.

No matter how well Nick Foles played in the postseason, Wentz was always going to be the starter when healthy.

With most of his main targets returning for 2018, Wentz will have another Most Valuable Player-caliber season and earn his chance to lead the Eagles to glory.

Navigating the NFC won't be easy, though, as a wide array of contenders should emerge. Look for the Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings to improve, while quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will have the San Francisco 49ers in the hunt for a championship. You also can't count out the Green Bay Packers with a healthy Aaron Rodgers at quarterback.

Over in the AFC, a new face will arise as the conference's Super Bowl representative.

The Jacksonville Jaguars displayed in 2017 how much of a challenger they can be to the throne of the New England Patriots, and with the five-time Super Bowl champions on the decline a bit, Doug Marrone's squad will seize the moment.

Questions will still surround the play of quarterback Blake Bortles, but his playoff performances should be enough for the UCF product to build on going into the 2018 campaign.

With an imperious defense already in place, the Jaguars should benefit from Bortles' improvement and more production from running back Leonard Fournette to get them over the hump and into the Super Bowl.

Although the Jaguars will improve on their 2017 record, they won't have enough to slow down the budding dynasty in Philadelphia led by Wentz and head coach Doug Pederson.
