Super Bowl 53: Patriots coach Bill Belichick says Rams’ Aaron Donald is 'pretty much unblockable'

NFL Week 14: Five things to watch for

Bill Belichick has been impressed by Aaron Donald.

The Patriots will face the Rams in Super Bowl 53 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. New England’s longtime coach was asked what he thought stood out about Los Angeles’ star pass rusher during a conference call Tuesday.

“Everything,” Belichick told reporters. “He’s pretty much unblockable.”

Donald, a five-time Pro Bowl player and the 2017 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, tallied 59 total tackles and a league-leading 20.5 sacks in 16 regular-season games in 2018. He also forced four fumbles.

Belichick also praised the Rams’ defensive line as a whole and veteran coordinator Wade Phillips.

“They’re really good,” Belichick said. “They’ve got great inside power and quickness and they’ve got a great edge rush. They’ve got a lot of good players, a lot of guys that are hard to block.

“They do a really good job. Wade (Phillips) always does. He’s an excellent coach and he does such a great job with all of those guys there. They have a variety of players and they’re all a problem.”

The Super Bowl matchup between the Rams and Patriots will kick-off on Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. ET.
