If you are not sure where to throw your weight, consider rooting for the Patriots. This is because New England is most likely going to take the Super Bowl 2018 title. Therefore, cheer up and get off the fence; at the end of the day, you are better off being on a winning side. All indicators show that the Patriots odds for Super Bowl are much better.
To begin with, winning Super Bowl over and over is a rare occurrence. A team that can master the win and keep at it is definitely worth your attention. Creating an empire is no mean task. To this end, the hard work and dedication has to count for something. For many neutral fans and even Eagles fans, this sustained win for the Patriots may arouse furry to say the least. In addition, it can get monotonous. However, for coach Belichick and his team to manage victory every time, a lot has to be done behind the scenes. This unseen effort will always play out on the field. The undying commitment to perform at top level for New England is an asset that cannot be underrated. This drive is likely to see them take the Sunday title.
On many occasions, Eagles fans have brought their conduct into question. One good example is when a police horse at a stadium became the recipient of a punch courtesy of an avid Eagles fan. The misconduct does not stop there. Millie, the oldest Vikings fan who is 99 years old was insulted by Philly fans. This notwithstanding the beer assault against Vikings fans before and after the game where the Eagles won. Even if the Patriots and their fans have their own shortcomings, this violent or passionate show cannot be tolerated. The winning team is best described as having disciplined fans and New England is closest to this description.
The Eagles suffered a huge setback when Carson Wentz suffered a knee injury. However, Wentz as a quarterback cannot be replaced easily. Foles did a good job stepping in to salvage the situation. However, the team is most likely going to have Wentz as the preferred quarterback. This controversy and anxiety has the power to complicate the outcome of the game. Will the quarterback deliver as desired? This will all play in favor of the Patriots, making them more likely to win. With a clearer team lineup and less conflicts with positions, New England may use this to their advantage.
It is common knowledge that many people who are not happy with the New England dynasty want it to collapse. Indeed, coming up to the end of the season, there were rumors and reports of internal wrangles and conflict at New England. It was alleged that coach Belichick was no longer in good terms with the team owner Robert Kraft. It was also said that even Tom Brady was no longer sitting easy in the team. Kraft later addressed the matter by admitting that there were indeed some issues in the team. However, he made it very clear that it was nothing unusual. He stated that any top level team would have strong personalities clashing.
Kraft was quick to say that the solution would come when all egos would be checked to ensure that the health of the team was sound. What makes a team even stronger is its ability to solve internal wars. Now, the smoke and dust seems to have settled ahead of the Sunday Super Bowl game. If the team has indeed used their ingenuity to calm all the members, this could work for them. With a stronger team agenda and a common uniting goal, it is really hard to beat such a team. This is a very good reason why the Patriots might defend their right to stay on top of the game. Keep in mind that Brady and Belichick have been with the team for over a decade, the glue that keeps them together could work wonders for another win.
Finally, they say that reaching the top is easier than remaining on top. In light of this, the Patriots may be working triple duty to retain their empire. What the team has had to do to remain on top could be replicated easily on Sunday. It should not come as a surprise when New England lifts their sixth Super Bowl title.
