    It has been decided! The New England Patriots will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. These two teams should make for an interesting matchup. On one hand, you have the Patriots. A team that has been to the Super Bowl 8 times with the same QB. And on the other hand, you have the Eagles. A team that has only made two Super Bowl appearances in their entire history.

    This is definitely going to come down to who wants it more. The Patriots have proven themselves worthy for the SB numerous times, and their opponent hasn't. The Eagles are now a worthy team and will be clawing their way down the field with everything they have.

    After watching the NFC championship game, gotta say the best team from the NFC made it to the Super Bowl. Even without Carson Wentz. Foles looked pretty great against one of the best defenses in the league.

    The Eagles can beat you so many ways and they have almost no holes in their game. The Patriots win as Brady is successful. So funny enough, that makes me think the Pats are more 1 dimensional in this super bowl.

    I give the Eagles the edge. Though only slightly.. it's still Brady.

    Philadelphia has a pretty good defense. I had them on my fantasy team. Having a good defense helps the QB and offense look and play better.

    However, Philadelphia's offensive line is awesome. That's why Philadelphia was an excellent team with both Wentz and Folse . Folse, who has always been a pretty good QB on the right team, has pretty well picked up where Wentz left off. The offensive line doesn't get enough credit.

    Of course, New England is also a good all around team both on offense and defense. Tom Brady with big help from Gronkowski really shines if the run game is also clicking. Brady is getting a bit old and the hits on his body can take a toll. It doesn't take much for him to be a bit off.

    Overall, New England might be favored on paper, but the Philadelphia defense I feel will step up big time and make the ultimate difference in a close game. I pick the Eagles to win with a last second field goal by Jake Elliot.

    Yeah, good call. I think the game will come down to Philly's D line and if they can get to Brady or not enough times. I think they will need to force at least 1 big turnover to win the game.

    Game will be won or lost by the turnover stat is what I'm thinking.

    I hear you! I'm not a big fan of either, but I truly do despise the Patriots. It's tough "rooting against" both teams, but if I had to choose one then it's Eagles all the way.
