Super Bowl LII Review By Michael D. Kilgore Sr.
The Philadelphia Eagles and The New England Patriots meet once again in The Super Bowl! The two teams met back in 2005 for Super Bowl XXXIX. Patriots won that 24-21. For The Eagles this will be the club’s 3rd trip to the Big Dance never having hoisted the eluded Vince Lombardi trophy. Philadelphia has won 3 NFL Championships the precursor to the Super Bowl.
In New England, the trophy case looks much different winning 5 Super Bowls with 8 appearances since 2001. Tom Brady a sure bet first ballot Hall of Famer has the chance to become the first quarteback to win a passing title and A Super Bowl in the same year.
Super Bowl LII features two of the top defences in the NFL. The Eagles dominate defensive line only has allowed an average of 78 yards in rushing throughout the playoffs. The Eagles have not allowed more then ten points in a game since Week 15 of the regular season. The Patriots have not allowed no more then 20 since that same week.
After going through the AFC, trampling Tennessee and surviving a tough challenge from Jacksonville, the Patriots enter as heavy favourites to win their 6th super bowl and to arguably make Tom Brady one of ”the greatest”.
However, these games aren’t played on paper, meaning that we have to put several things under consideration. As one commentator puts it, the number one focus shall be ‘’ how Nick Foles will play in the biggest game of his life. For someone who was considering retirement just two years ago, he’s in a huge spot against the greatest coach in NFL history and the dynasty of the decade. Foles operates at his best when he has time to sit in the pocket and read the field. He’s capable of making every throw in the Eagles offense, but he can’t extend plays the way Carson Wentz could’’.
Super Bowl LII will be on NBC tonight Feb 4th at The U.S Bank Stadium, 6:30pm EST. Located in the cold city of Minneapolis, MN. Halftime show features Justin Timberlake who will perform Prince “the greatest all-around musician”. Should be a great game! Don’t miss it!
