Many Vikings fans rooting for the Patriots to win the Super Bowl

Many Vikings fans rooting for the Patriots to win the Super Bowl”

As for the Eagles, they are making their first Super Bowl appearance since playing in the title game in February of 2005.

As soon as Philadelphia punched their tickets to Super Bowl 52 here in Minnesota, Minnetonka native Beau Allen became a pretty popular guy. He's going to have to play his very best. So when the Eagles pull out that W over the Patriots against all odds, let's hope that the city of Minneapolis is still standing after the celebration. It is quite the David Vs. Goliath matchup.

So there you have it, I am taking Philly to defeat almighty Brady and keep the Patriots from their sixth Super Bowl victory in 16 seasons.

Lewis was a key player for the Patriots this season, gaining 1,110 yards combined between rushing and receiving.

ESPN ran its piece January 5, and it was entitled "For Kraft, Brady and Belichick, is this the beginning of the end?"- a tale that portrayed a troubled relationship between the trifecta of owner Robert Kraft and the team's two most famous employees.

Rather than give him the Coach of the Year award every year, maybe just name it after him.

For the Eagles this season, Beau hits just about everything that moves.

The two were apart when the Eagles clinched their spot in the Super Bowl with a 38-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Giving Tom Brady time to throw in the pocket will absolutely cause trouble for the Eagles defense, who will not be able to defend the wide receivers, and tight ends for more then a few seconds.

"He's an awesome player", Christopher Jackson, an Eagles fan from Los Angeles, said.

The bettor has the chance to win $1.32 million if the Eagles win, and he would walk away with a profit of $820,000.

The Patriots allowed a generous 4.7 yards per carry in 2017, which would typically cater to Ajayi's speed and agility. "The Patriots are going to come back in the second half like they always do".

New England did it in 2001.

But after losing his pass-catching security blanket late in August, Brady and the Patriots chose to take a longer look at their offense. After Gronkowski's concussion versus the Jaguars, they seemed to be a completely different team and because of this Tom Brady seemed to struggle not having his ultimate weapon available for use. The early-season struggles were highlighted a couple weeks later against the Houston Texans and rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, and then a home loss to Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers the following week.

"So, I'm just trying to protect it the best way I can".

In fact, Michaels was quick to remind those that his famous Olympic call in 1980 had a big, Boston-based connection. Adding James Harrison to the roster shortly after the Steelers released him only added to the Patriots depth on defense.

It's an unusual one for the Patriots, too, as White acknowledges. The Eagles may find success on the ground against a Patriots team ranked 20th in the National Football League against the run.

It turned out to be the beginning of the beginning ... of another deep playoff run.

Growing up in Texas, Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills always had his sights on Philadelphia, at least concerning the National Basketball Association.

Kyle Van Noy, Linebacker: The fourth-year product out of BYU has played well this season with 5.5 sacks.

"But we don't want to be behind by two or three touchdowns in any game that we play".

There is no disputing the Eagles are up against a well-oiled machine in the Patriots.

Brady is once again leading the Patriots to the Super Bowl as New England defends the National Football League title against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

"It put a big chip on our shoulder", Cox said. Now, 15 years later, can Nick Foles be the next to outduel a future Hall of Famer? After all, the Broncos and Patriots have met in the playoffs five times, and they went head-to-head twice in Championship games the last five years.

The 125,400 number, McGill said, includes people who come in for the game with tickets-around 60,000 fans-as well as those who go to the events, non-local credentialed workers, the two teams and their families and personnel. Follow McGuire on Twitter and like him on Facebook.
