The Eagles are at the opposite end of the spectrum from the Patriots. I know we did well this year scoring points, but I know the Eagles were in first most of the weeks and breathing down our necks. The total has hovered at 48 or 48.5. Don't be shocked if the Eagles try to establish the run early and often to limit Brady'stime with the ball.
In their playoff opener, the 13-3 Eagles were the first-ever No. 1 seed to be a home underdog.
- Patriots vs. spread: 12-6 overall, 1-1 in the postseason. Since 2004, Madden has correctly predicted 10 out of the last 14 Super Bowls, and with a mind-blowing ability to predict the future, they foresaw the Patriots marching back in the 4th quarter to beat the Falcons past year.

So, if the Eagles manage to win their first Super Bowl, will there be anything the so-called "Crisco Cops" could use to keep Philly fans on the ground? The problem is that not many teams are even close to possessing the requisite tools for the job.
"We got a locker room full of guys who are ready for the challenge", Brady said. The Eagles will go with their signature midnight green.

Not much has to be said about a New England staff that is 5-2 in Super Bowls.
The Eagles are 10-3 when he's been the lead official, including five consecutive wins dating back to 2013, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com. That's a pretty good mark, certainly compared with his career average, but an 80.9 would only have ranked 17th this season, one spot above Dak Prescott, and that's what makes that season so interesting. He also refereed when the Eagles beat the Lions, 56-21, in 2007 and Carolina, 45-21, in 2014. He's got a long way to go to catch up with New England's Bill Belichick, the rare National Football League coach who appears to be without weakness. The Eagles are led by Nick Foles, a quarterback who'd been the backup most of the season until the injury to starter Carson Wentz.
He pointed to Brady's habit of making a few plays every game that swing momentum and Belichick's knack for coaxing his counterparts into beating themselves - like the Indianapolis Colts did with their fake punt fiasco in 2015. They have combined for 23 sacks in the regular season and playoffs. Yet Tom Coughlin and his staff outcoached Bill Belichick and his assistants, and a New England squad that averaged almost 37 points was befuddled by New York's pressure D.
