It's Patriots vs. Eagles in Super Bowl LII!

Super Bowl LII Eagles vs. Patriots Comparing defensive lines

You think the Eagles will win this game? We may not like either of the teams in it, but the commercials should be good.

The team's top defensive players - Darby and Jernigan felt ill enough to miss media events on Thursday and practice sessions on Friday.

After a couple of bad weeks at the end of the regular season in which the Eagles offense stalled against the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys, that unit has been re-energized in playoff wins over the Atlanta Falcons and Vikings.

Foles may not be as prepared for this huge moment as Wentz would have been, and he does not compare with Brady in this area.

The Patriots ranked 28th in yards allowed during the regular season, and that unit performed poorly during the first four games of the season.

In other words, if you bet on the over, the total number of points scored by both the Patriots and the Eagles must be 49 or over for the bet to pay off.

Who are the players to watch out for?

Alshon Jeffery caught two TD passes and had a long play of 53 yards. Their longest run in that span was by receiver Nelson Agholor on an end around.

There you have it.... seven votes for the Pats and two for the Eagles.

It also doesn't include Syracuse men who were head coaches in the Super Bowl. "We're a mentally tough team, a physically tough team, and we put a lot of work in to try to prepare ourselves for that fourth quarter, overtime, whatever it may be", center David Andrews said, per Alex Speier of the Boston Globe.

All eyes will be on the Super Bowl - so here's all you need to know.

-The Eagles are better than the Patriots in almost every defensive statistical category, especially on the ground. They first had to replace Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, but Halapoulivaati Vaitai has done a superb job in his place and shut down Minnesota Vikings pass rusher Everson Griffen in the NFC Championship Game. Experience matters as much as anything when on the biggest stage, so it's going to be hard for Philadelphia to be as prepared as New England. When I see that, I'm like pressure after pressure after pressure, knockdown after knockdown after knockdown against Brady, it could be tough. He ran for 896 yards and averaged 5.0 yards per carry, and he can not be overlooked.

Knocked out of the AFC Championship Game with a concussion on January 21, Gronkowski was cleared to return to practice this week. It makes Eagles fans sick to their stomach Call it a curse. There are many peculiar similarities like that between this Super Bowl, in 2018 (LII), and the one in 2004 (XXXIX).

The NFL season has boiled down to the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. And defense, again, is Philadelphia's key strength.

Snow on and off this weekend
Watch for re-freeze Monday Morning as temperatures start off in the mid-teens. A few locations may possibly see more in the way of snowfall.
