A good 13 years since the franchises met in Super Bowl 39, who will take the rematch in Super Bowl 52? Here's an early prediction. Odds for Eagles vs. The Eagles have been the NFL's most complete team in their ability to light up the scoreboard while also shutting down opponents.
What looked like a lopsided QB advantage for Brady feels a little different after Nick Foles turned in one of the greatest playoff passing performances ever against the Vikings.
Facing another daunting defense that will stop the run, Brady will have no issues passing often in a game that has all the makings of a shootout.
David Steele's Super Bowl 52 pick. The Patriots have the better secondary to contain Foles' targets, but the Eagles have the better front-four pass rush to throw at Brady. Dion Lewis and Jay Ajayi both will flash in the running game, but it comes down to which gamebreaking wide receiver-tight end combination — Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz vs.
Brandin Cooks and Rob Gronkowski — can have more success stretching the field. The Patriots are vulnerable in linebacker coverage but have the cornerbacks and safeties to contain big plays. The Eagles' defensive weaknesses lie on the edges of their back seven. Overall, not much will separate the offense explosiveness. Plus, you have to think the Pats were confident in getting at least a couple more years out of Brady when they dealt Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers.
Foles is under contract for , and he showed exactly how valuable a solid understatement of the century backup QB is in this league. How badly do you think the Cardinals wanted someone Foles-like when Carson Palmer went down? Philly GM Howie Roseman has a chance to surround Carson Wentz with even more talent than he already has, which is, to be clear, an immense amount.
This is how you build a dynasty. If I know that, you can be darn sure Roseman, arguably the best executive in the NFL, knows it a thousand times over. Super Bowl 52 hero NIck Foles will garner intriguing trade offers this offseason. NFL Football September 5, NFL Football September 3, NFL Football August 24,
