Super Bowl 51 Preview

Super Bowl 51 Preview

Another year, another Super bowl Tom Brady and the Patriots will be representing the AFC as division champs. New England has been the face of the NFL since both Brady and head coach Bill Belichick took helm of the team. Four championships later, and the Patriots have become the slandered of the NFL. While this is certainly not the best team New England has ever had, the 40-year-old Brady has been better than ever. Finishing the regular season with a 32 touchdown to 6 interception ratio, Brady has propelled himself not only into the MVP race but in “Greatest of all time” conversations.

It has been a wild season for the Philadelphia Eagles on the other hand. While they have been dominant throughout the entire year, injuries have hit this team hard. From losing MVP Front runner Carson Wentz to Jason Peters, one of the best tackles in all of football, Philly is a team seemingly being held by duck tape at this point. One this that has remained consistent is the Eagles staunch defense. Being ranked in the top five the entire season, Philly is one of the fastest, hardest hitting teams in the entire NFL. Being lead by back up quarterback Nick Foles, Philly will look to take their underdog status and bet the odds.

In order to take home the championship, both teams are going to need to stick to their game plans. Tom Brady will need to be outer worldly like usual and control the tempo of the game. On the other hand, Philly will need to attack Brady and try to get him on the ground more times than one. If you give Brady more than three seconds in the pocket, you WILL lose. But if Philly can help their offense by not letting Brady score a lot, Philly has a great chance of coming out on top.

Super Bowl 51 will be in Minnesota on Sunday, February 4, 2018 .
