It is unusual for the Super Bowl to be held in such a northerly location and temperatures in Minneapolis this week have been as low as -19C.
Super Bowl LII is nearly here, and between the AFC's New England Patriots and NFC's Philadelphia Eagles, most of the wager lines have been laid down and fixed for the most part of these past couple of weeks. Even at his size, Flowers plays with a lot of power, but he also wins with athleticism, technique, and - maybe most of all - effort. Since Week 13, the Eagles have allowed their opponent to score in the first quarter of five of seven games, including both playoff games.
The last eight winners of the AP MVP award to reach the Super Bowl have lost the game, including Brady in the 2007 season against the New York Giants.
Eagles vs. Patriots news:Especially since no matter where he lines up, Flowers still finds a way to make plays. No team is allowing fewer points over that time. And while Brady has proven himself at evading edge rushers from within the pocket, he has been thrown off by interior rushers who can force him off his spot, as the Falcons' Grady Jarrett did a year ago with three sacks. No team has won the Super Bowl while failing to force a turnover. Amendola has more first-down catches (24) throughout the regular season and postseason than every other Patriots receiver combined (23), per Pro Football Focus.
Set to be an explosive Sunday evening of entertainment, it all starts with a 90-minute build-up show from 10pm on Sky Sports Action, with kick-off at 11.30pm as the AFC's New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFC. If Foles is feeling it, and you give him the option to run or pass, there's a much better chance he pulls it back and opts to not hand it off.
Wentz tore a ligament in his left knee against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.
Playing in their third Super Bowl in four years the Patriots success could be their dynasty's demise with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive mastermind Matt Patricia poised to move to the head coaching ranks soon after the Vince Lombardi trophy is hoisted. Philadelphia is 0-2 in their previous Super Bowl appearances.
"You have to stay patient and diligent there", Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. They had three takeaways in their NFC Championship victory, their fifth game with three or more takeaways - tied for their most in a season since 2010. They have to get the first win first.
The Philadelphia Eagles have surprised a fan who woke up groggy from recent dental surgery asking, "Did I miss the Super Bowl?!?".
"Greatest quarterback of all time, but that doesn't mean that he's unbeatable", Jenkins said of Brady.
Who knew that Philadelphia Eagles and former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles was a jack of all trades National Football League player?
The team added veteran receivers Alshon Jeffrey and Torrey Smith, running backs LeGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi, defensive linemen Chris Long and Tim Jernigan and defensive backs Ronald Darby, Patrick Robinson and Corey Graham.
