ATLANTA — Dante Fowler has the AFC championship game from the 2015 season committed to memory, so much so that the Los Angeles Rams outside linebacker does not feel a need to watch it again as he prepares for Super Bowl LIII against New England.

Fowler, acquired in a trade from Jacksonville on Oct. 30, spent hours studying Denver’s 20-18 defeat of the Patriots in that game before the Jaguars played New England for the AFC championship last January.

The Broncos’ defensive dominance was inspirational and instructional for Fowler, who hopes to reprise the role of Denver edge rusher Von Miller against the Patriots in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday.
