Check out our slidehsow of the four biggest advantages the New England Patriots have over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
The New Eslideshowtriots have done it once again. The Patriots have defied the odds, making it back to the Super Bowl in consecutive seasons, something that is extremely difficult to do. This time around it will be another rematch.
The Patriots are set to face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. This is a rematch from Super Bowl XXIX in 2005. In that game, the Patriots defeated the Eagles 24-21. Deion Branch took home the MVP award and it was the third Super Bowl victory in four years for the Patriots.
Fast forward to this year, and the Patriots are looking to repeat that improbable task. New England is gunning for their third Super Bowl in four years, which would be the sixth for Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.
At the time of the first matchup with the Eagles, Brady was a spry 27-years old. He will 40-years old when the game kicks off this weekend. That in itself is an impressive feat, as Brady continues to be dominant at an age most people are retired and onto the next stage of their lives.
The Patriots are a well-oiled machine, as they have continued rolling this season with little resistance. They finished the regular season 13-3 before disposing of the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars in the playoffs.
However, the Eagles were no slouches throughout the season. Philadelphia finished the regular season 13-3 as well, defeating the Atlanta Falcons and Minnesota Vikings in the postseason. All of this was done without rising star quarterback Carson Wentz, who tore his ACL.
While the Eagles will present some problems for the Patriots, New England has some advantages they can exploit as well. Check out our slideshow of the four biggest advantages the Patriots have over the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.
