Everything from Eagles vs. Patriots as it happens

Brady won his first Super Bowl in the 2001 season and he won his fifth just previous year - so it isn't like this guy isn't still in his prime.

That is the mantra for every defensive back in this Super Bowl.

A generous gift to sports writers everywhere - a one-size-fits-all Super Bowl story, to run any year in the foreseeable future ... He'll make at least one more Sunday. "Gronk will be SB MVP".

The Patriots won the next day, 24-21. Nick Foles stepped in for Wentz and helped the Eagles reach the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2004 season.

The Eagles shouldn't be tight and they're not intimidated by the Patriots.

Both teams go into the match with 13 wins and 3 defeats this season.

Sungevity Announces Response to Trump Administration's Solar Tariffs
Martin Heinrich, in a letter to the International Trade Commission, wrote: "The solar industry is now booming across the nation". The tariff will last through 2021 and will fall by 5 percent each year, dropping to a 15 percent tariff three years from now.

The temperature for the 52nd annual Super Bowl is expected to be -17° C on the street, but in the 20's in the enclosed stadium in Minneapolis, (in the northern US state of) Minnesota. Look for offensive coordinator Frank Reich to get LeGarrette Blount, Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement going early to calm the nerves of quarterback Nick Foles in his first Super Bowl. It's a bad matchup for me because - of course, as a Bostonian. Last time it became public, Patriots coach Bill Belichick read the parade route to his players in a meeting as motivation before Super Bowl 39. SCORE: 30-27 Patriots.

That explains his choice to win the Super Bowl this year. I mean, I don't think anyone can ever take those for granted.

The 18-year veteran led the National Football League in passing attempts (581), yards (4,577) and yards per game (286.1) this season while throwing for 32 scores and eight interceptions. There is no substitute for experience at the position and not all of the experience is a happy experience.

If the Eagles can pressure Brady with just their front four the way they did Case Keenum in the NFC Championship Game then they should be able to avoid the fate that befell Atlanta last season. The game will be close, and I expect the Eagles to enjoy a lead heading into the fourth quarter. Last week, MGM's sportsbook reported taking a "multimillion" bet on the Eagles. All five of their championships together have come in games decided by six points or less.

Joe Zagacki: "The Eagles will win with a late field goal". Led by the astonishing Tom Brady, the reigning champs boast not only the league's most productive offense, but also its most efficient. The Eagles' running game is stout, and the underdog mentality is a legitimate factor.
