Nick Foles follows Jeff Hostetler's path from backup to Super Bowl


Nick Foles follows Jeff Hostetler's path from backup to Super Bowl

Meanwhile, the Eagles thrashed Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the other semi-final, with fill-in quarterback Nick Foles throwing three touch downs.

Allen has performed well in playoff games in his Patriots career, including the Super Bowl last season and in the AFC Championship Game this year against the Jaguars.

There is no arguing Brady's contributions to New England's unheard of run in the past two decades, but as football is a team sport, Brady cannot win all of those games alone.

It is worth noting, given the battle of optics between some National Football League players and the 45th president, there could be - at least in theory - a chance a Super Bowl-winning team that isn't fully embracing a certain type of politics might not be invited to the White House at all.

Madden NFL predicted the Patriots would rally late in the fourth quarter of last year's Super Bowl, including overcoming a 10-point deficit in the third quarter. Hopefully, the Pats can get Gronk back or near 100% in time for the game, assuming he completes the concussion protocol.

But the NFC Champion Birds will gladly put those "dog" masks on again because they believe that they have the New England Patriots exactly where they want them.

This time around, Rendell thinks the Eagles have the superior strength along the line of scrimmage to beat the Patriots, even without the star power of the 2004-05 team.

This will be Tom Brady's eighth Super Bowl appearance with the Patriots.

The Herald went into a bit more detail to shed light on why Garoppolo's paycheck from Super Bowl LII will be slightly higher than Brady's.

Foles has only recently found himself in the limelight following an injury to regular Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

Can the Eagles defensive front make an impact on Tom Brady?

The key to the game will be the first couple of drives. Despite his departure from New England, Blount said he stays in touch with former running back mates James White, Dion Lewis and Brandon Bolden.

The Eagles, who have embraced the underdog role, are happy to fit into the position for another week after knocking off the favored Atlanta Falcons and Minnesota Vikings to reach the Super Bowl. He already holds the individual record of winning the most super bowls with five championships under his belt. "When you really start to look at it, this is probably out of all the times it's happened since I played, this may be the most similar when you get to all the nuts and bolts about it".
