The stage is set for Super Bowl 52 after an exciting NFL season. Unsurprisingly, representing the AFC are the virtually unstoppable New England Patriots who have been to eight Super Bowls in the past 17 years all with Tom Brady as Quarterback. Their opponents are the Philadelphia Eagles who are making their first Super Bowl appearance since 2004, when they were defeated by the Patriots.

Tom Brady has won everything there is to win, with a total of five Super Bowl rings and a guaranteed trip to the Hall of Fame, he is arguably the greatest quarterback of all time. Even at the age of 40, Brady has shown no side of slowing down including their most recent game where he led them back after overcoming an 11 point deficit to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC championship.

Nick Foles is the quarterback for the Eagles. He was awarded the starting position after Carson Wentz was sidelined with a torn ACL in Week 14. Many had doubts regarding the Eagles playoff chances after Wentz’s injury, but they proved them wrong by using their underdog persona as a rallying cry. Foles is currently 4-1 as the starting quarterback and had a career game in the NFC Championship as his team defeated the favored Minnesota Vikings 38-7.

The Eagles’ offense has the capability to give the New England defense headaches if Foles is able to continue playing in his current form. The Patriot’s defense hasn’t been as dominant as they have been in the past, but offense is where the team has always excelled. The secret for past teams on beating the Eagles has been a consistent pass rush. The Eagles’ defensive lineman has been the team strength throughout the season and if they are able to put pressure on Brady they could lead their team to a win. Winning the turnover battle could be crucial for an Eagles’ victory, as the Patriots are 159-15 when getting more turnovers than their opponents.

I think the Eagles’ defense will step up and disrupt the Patriots offensive rhythm. Foles has to stay consistent, he can not afford to throw interceptions. The Patriots are dealing with several injuries of key players, which is a major concern.

I personally predict the Eagles will win their first Super Bowl 31-21 over the Patriots.

    The prediction of the score was not too far off.
