That's what happens when a team does the one thing the Patriots do so well: win. Impressive, yes. But let's not make this team into something they're not.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is as unlikely a Super Bowl QB as Brady is an inevitable one.

- Patriots corner Stephon Gilmore and Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery were college roommates at SC.

"Ain't no 'if, ' man", he told reporters.

Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills said his answer is technique.

It's cool that Jeffery is confident.

It is quite unheard of for an National Football League team to have an empty injury report at any point in a season, and that includes Week 1. The Eagles are a team of hope in a city that never stops believing.

Instead, the Patriots save their swagger for the field.

Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett was constantly in Brady's face in last year's Super Bowl, becoming only the second player to sack Brady three times in a game.

The Pats come into the match as defending champions after their sensational overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons past year. He's cleared the league's concussion protocol over the last two weeks, and he's no rookie. He was almost flawless in Philly's run to the Super Bowl, throwing four touchdowns in a rout of the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC title game. They'll need more balance to upset the Patriots. The Patriots' come-from-behind 34-28 overtime triumph over Atlanta in Super Bowl LI was the largest margin of victory in any of their last eight Super Bowl appearances.

He has been backing the team ever since, which doesn't sit well with his Patriot-loving wife, Christine Howard. And winning. And winning.

New England also has the coaching edge with the winningest mentor in the Super Bowl era in Bill Belichick - also with five Super Bowl titles.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement (30) and teammates go through a practice for the NFL Super Bowl 52 football game Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, in Minneapolis.

But they are much more than that.

"We're obviously very disappointed, but I'm extremely proud of our guys", said a disconsolate _ _, the _s' head coach.

His fashion choice did not go over well when he wore a Yankee shirt to a Red Sox game. "But I have to see if I am good enough if I can kick the ball far enough!" Neither would I. And frankly, I still don't think they stand a chance. These are pretty incredible times for all of us - fans included, players, coaches, everyone.
