Young Eagles Fan Urges The Eagles Defense To "Take Tom Brady Out"

Young Eagles Fan Urges The Eagles Defense To

In their last three Super Bowl runs, the Patriots had to overcome a double-digit deficit four times. Soon the players from both teams will be subjected to thousands of mind-numbing questions from the media.

Check out what the Patriots did with and without Cannon in the regular season. The Eagles have previously been to the game twice, which includes a 27-10 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XV in 1981.

"If you look at a Patriots Super Bowl, a lot of people feel that the Patriots are going to be dominant and they should just wipe the floor with whoever they play", says Jay Kornegay of the Westgate Las Vegas sports book.

For the Patriots, this will be their eighth time competing in the Super Bowl during the Bill Belichick/Tom Brady era.

- The Philadelphia Eagles have touched down in Minneapolis prior to Super Bowl LII, with just one week to go until kickoff at the big game.

EA has been simulating upcoming Super Bowl matchups for years now with Madden NFL 18 and honestly they've done pretty well in previous years. Give Belichick and his defensive mind two weeks to prepare for an opponent, and he generally has all the angles covered. I'm pulling for the Eagles in the upset, but I think Tom Brady will get them. Pulling that off would be quite a feat.

In an interview with ESPN on Sunday, Brady provided an update on his recovery. "I'm really going into uncharted waters".

Super Bowl week is longer than that of a traditional road game and there was a whiteboard in the locker room with specific packing instructions for the players. They seemed to have hit their stride and are playing well. They have one of the worst scoring defenses in the National Football League, and that could hurt them in the Super Bowl.

Sifford doesn't believe that Parker and and Wilkinson are true Eagles fans. A determined Gronk trying to make up for lost opportunity could be the difference maker.

Foles, who took over as Philadelphia's quarterback last, completed 26 of 33 passes for 352 yards as the Eagles scored 38 unanswered points in a rout.

"Don't even get my anxiety started", wide receiver Chris Hogan said when asked if he remembered to pack everything.

The Eagles have played two home games as the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. In the AFC Championship game, the Patriots were trailing the Jacksonville Jaguars 20-10 with about 10 minutes left in the game. Somehow, it's easy to imagine Amendola being a factor again on Sunday.

MAGNITUDE OF THE MOMENT: Jake Elliott, the Eagles 23-year-old rookie, has been ideal in converting all four field goals he's attempted in the playoffs, including a 53-yarder, but he has missed a point after attempt. Ten thousand volunteers are dispersed throughout the city, especially around the Super Bowl Live area near Nicollet Mall. Nick Foles is a great quarterback who's done a great job.

"The reality is all their Super Bowl wins have been in very close games".
