Patriots hold final outdoor practice in preparation for Super Bowl 52

The Eagles also lost the championship game in 1981.

Eagles' fans quickly picked up on the defiant dog mask statement with many wearing them to Sunday's over the Vikings at Philadelphia Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles have previously been to the game twice, which includes a 27-10 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XV in 1981. "And while there have been a handful of exceptional coaches to work in the National Football League, none of them coached in the 32-team era, none of them coached in the salary-cap era, unrestricted free agency - the man who does it all, the greatest of all time, coach Bill Belichick".

Oddsmakers went overboard right away with the spread at six points. "Going to be a lot of hard work".

"I think the team that can put aside the distractions and focus on the game is going to be the team that's probably going to benefit from that". "We love you. Patriots out!"

Patriots players Danny Amendola, Devin McCourty and Duron Harmon also addressed the crowd before handing it off to quarterback Tom Brady.

I mean, seriously? But wait, there's more!

But if the Eagles win it all, there might not be anything that can keep Philadelphia fanatics with two feet on the ground.

Other teams have guarded their locker room while playing at New England, including one team that padlocked the door. But former Eagles assistant Steve Spagnoulo raised suspiciouns about the Patriots being up to something fishy two years earlier.

The key stat is Foles didn't turn the ball over in either playoff game.

There is no arguing Brady's contributions to New England's unheard of run in the past two decades, but as football is a team sport, Brady cannot win all of those games alone. I want them to win just as much as the next guy, but by the time they ever do make the Super Bowl, I won't be around to see it. And the only game decided by more than four points - last year's win against Atlanta - came in overtime after an epic comeback by New England.

One thing Philadelphia can't contend with is New England's huge experience advantage in the big game.
