Who will win Super Bowl LII: Philadelphia Eagles or New England Patriots?
It's been 13 years since the Philadelphia Eagles have made it to the Super Bowl. Standing in their way are the New England Patriots, yet again, just like they were in 2005. But this year, Philly will have its revenge.
Star quarterback Carson Wentz's absence should have derailed the Eagles' playoff success, but backup Nick Foles has stepped in to perfectly manage Philadelphia's offense. Foles has completed 77.8 percent of his passes for nearly 600 yards and three touchdowns in two games. His play in the biggest games of the season bodes well for the Eagles' success.
But the thing that will separate the Eagles at the Super Bowl is the team's hot defense, which will be leaned on to put pressure on Brady and cause turnovers like they did against the Minnesota Vikings. This is Philadelphia's year. The Eagles will win the Super Bowl.
Another year, another Super Bowl berth for the New England Patriots. This will be the eighth appearance for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in their legendary careers, and their legend will only rise to new heights at Super Bowl LII.
As long as Tom Brady is behind center, there is no way the Patriots lose this game. They were down 28-3 last year and still came back to win with his steady hand. Heck, he was basically functioning with half a hand at the AFC Championship Game this year with 12 stitches on his throwing hand. With Bill Belichick overseeing the team, there is no situation that New England can't adjust to—as he proved against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Patriots are one of the most hated teams in the world for a reason. New England's success has led to a dynasty that is the envy of every team in the NFL. That hate will continue after the Patriots seal this Super Bowl win.
