After a close victory, the New England Patriots come back from being down 14-3 to defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20. Tom Brady did what he normally does, and led the Pats to scoring 14 points in the 4th quarter.
For the NFC, the Eagles easily took care of buisness as they went on to win by 31 points. The Eagles defense looked very good, and Nick Foles threw for 3 touchdowns. They were clearly the better team in this contest.
These two past matchups setup for what should be an interesting SuperBowl LII. The Pats will seek to win back to back championships, and the Eagles will look to win since the last time they were in the Superbowl; and that lost came to the Patriots. This matchup will contain a great defense and an explosive offense in Philly, facing a solid defense and a Tom Brady led offense where as we learned from last year: never count the Pats out.
How the Pats can win:
Control the game offensively. Don’t do anything different. Run the ball effectively and use alot of play action to keep the Eagles defense on their toes. Time of possession will be an important factor, especially if the game is close in the 4th quarter. If the Pats do these things, they can definitely win.
How the Eagles can win:
They must win the line of scrimmage. This is a battle they must win on both sides of the ball. If not, big bad plays are bound to happen. They also must win the time of possession. The longer Brady is off the field , the more effective he is. They must score at least 30 points. I believe that if they reach 30, they will have a much better chance against the Pats. They will want to avoid a low scoring game if possible.
