Patriots vs Ealges
Sun 2/4 @ 6:30 p.m. ET.
U.S. Bank Stadium, MN
For those wondering what the Patriots odds to win the Super Bowl are, look at what they have been bringing in their past games and remember the Patriots have Tom Brady. Even if you do not agree, he has been called the greatest quarterback of all time.
Players aside, the New England Patriots have defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21 at another Super Bowl, the 39th in Jacksonville, Florida in 2005.
Naturally, both of the teams are very much looking forward to this rematch opportunity.
Going back to the Patriots odds of winning the Super Bowl 52 against the Eagles, keep in mind that the Patriots have appeared in three Super Bowls since then, while this will be the first appearance for the Eagles since then.
If the Eagles win this Bowl, it will mark their first Super Bowl since in the merger and creation of the Super Bowl.
The Patriots, as a team, have more Super Bowl experience than the Eagles and than many other teams for that matter. New England now holds the record for most Super Bowls played in at ten and if they win against the Eagles, that would mark their sixth Super Bowl win. This would tie the Patriots with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who hold the record at six wins, for most Super Bowl won. If they win, there will be other records for this team, like winning two years in a row, and winning two years in a row twice. So, odds wise, the Patriots have an edge.
Still, nothing is set in stone. The Philadelphia Eagles are ready for this game and players like right tackle Lane Johnson have expressed their hunger for s win against the Patriots.
The Eagles showed the same hunger during their game against the Minnesota Vikings which resulted in a 37-8 win. Although the Vikings started with a 7-0 lead in the first part of the game, the Eagles brought everything they had during the second part of the game. It was an inception return that commenced their scoring off, and the Vikings defense could not stop the Eagles strategic and dominating offense. The credit for the impressiveness in their play goes to the coaches and coaching staff.
There were a lot of perfect passes from the Eagles Nick Foles. He went 26 for 33 for 352 yards and three touchdowns.
Earlier in the season, the Eagles lost their quarterback Carson Wentz to an ACL injury and their left tackle Jason Peters is out for the season, but they still brought it and will continue to bring it.
The Eagles have overcome some odds and they can do that again in this Super Bowl 52. All they have to do and continue playing well and keep the hunger until the end.
Both teams have a lot riding on this Super Bowl, fans want each to win. Eager as we all are, we must wait until February.
No one is more eager than the teams and their coaches. Like every Super Bowl, this will be one to watch.
