Eagles' Schwartz has tall order in stopping Brady, Pats

02 February 2018

Super Bowl 52 is here, and the Philadelphia Eagles will get a chance to dethrone the defending Champions, the New England Patriots. "If the Patriots win, I will make a $100 donation to Catholic Charities of Boston", he said. Gronkowski was flattened by Jaguars safety Barry Church just before the end of the first half and didn't return.

The Eagles haven't had the best luck in terms of Super Bowl opponents.

"When he's out there playing for our team, he's a great force, and it's great when he's playing at his top level", quarterback Tom Brady said.

He has his team back in the Super Bowl for the third time in four years and has had the type of season that has once again placed him in the most valuable player conversation.

The storm is expected to bring at least 2 inches of snow, according to forecasts by AccuWeather and the National Weather Service. Groundhog Day: to shadow or not to shadow? The zoo's groundhog Chuck has made weather predictions for more than three decades.

Given the time of year, it would be surprising if there weren't at least a few Patriots players under the weather. He's started more Super Bowls than anyone else, isn't even remotely afraid of the spotlight, and has had two weeks of practice to find the holes in the Eagles' secondary.

"Of course I follow it", he says. "It reminds me of some athletes I have great respect for, like Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, guys like that".

"We battled and we hung in there and beat them in Cleveland..." We have to move on. Their biggest challenge in this one will be solving the Eagles' frequent use of run-pass option plays, or RPOs. "So, I want to make sure they understand that we have to go in, we've got to stay focused, but at the same time we can refuel and kind of recharge".

But oddsmakers also clearly expect the announcers to build a storyline around the New England Patriots, as it's -130 for separate props on whether owner Robert Kraft or coach Bill Belichick will be mentioned or shown on-screen before their Eagles counterparts, Jeff Lurie and Doug Pederson respectively. Just treating it the same. The Eagles come into the game with one of the best defenses in the league - one superior to New England's, that should be able to apply pressure on Brady.

The Raiders were actually three-point underdogs against the Eagles before Super Bowl XV. In the 2005 season, Brady and the Pats lost to Denver in the divisional round. In that time, six other teams have won their respective conference championships by 30-plus points - just two have gone on to win the Super Bowl.

Defensive ends Derek Barnett and Chris Long, who is back in the Super Bowl after winning a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots a year ago, had five sacks apiece. They have to get a solid, nearly mistake-free game out of Foles, and they'll probably have to come up with a big defensive stand deep into the fourth quarter.

Brady is counting on a signature performance. He rarely sends an extra rusher against veteran quarterbacks who know how to get rid of the ball.

"I have had my experience playing against Brady", Jernigan said.
