The Patriots are attempting to win there second-straight Super Bowl and three of the last four. The Eagles are hoping to bring home the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in team history. The last time the team made the Super Bowl, they lost to the Patriots.
Both of these teams were the one seed in their conference, but no one expected the Eagles to get to this point after Carson Wentz went down for the season during his MVP campaign.
Nick Foles took the reigns of easily one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. The Eagles have rode their defense and running game thus far. However, Foles did prove he can perform in the NFC Championship game, as he tossed three touchdowns against one of the NFL’s best defenses in the Vikings.
The Eagles’ defense will have quite the task ahead of them though as they will be tasked with slowing down Tom Brady. He did struggle against the Jaguars defense, but he proved yet again that he is the quarterback you want on your team if you are losing.
Brady led New England back to beat the Jaguars, 24-20. It also helps that Rob Gronkowski has cleared the concussion protocol, so the Patriots will have all of their weapons on hand.
The Eagles are adept at rushing the passer and taking the ball away from opposing offenses. That is something Brady has historically struggled with in Super Bowls.
Still, Eagles fans can’t feel great about relying on Foles being able to outperform Brady after giving Bill Belichick two weeks to prepare for this offense.
We should be in store for a great Super Bowl, but which team do you think will win?
