You can still sign up. You'll receive everything immediately. Thanks for your support, and good luck! Will the first commercial after the kickoff be for an alcoholic Beverage? Which team will enter the 'Red Zone' 20 yrd line first? Will any points be scored in the first 5: I really liked the offseason they had, I am a believer in the coaching, and I think they are moving in the right direction with a strong core on both sides of the ball.

I really like where the team is at, and they are my top pick without hesitation. Carson Wentz has not come back quite as seamlessly from his injury as might have been ideal, and Nick Foles has looked awful in his last preseason action.

Is this just a little blip along the way or the first signs that defending a title isn't nearly as easy as it might seem? I remain a little lukewarm about the team. I respect them and what they did last year, and the offseason was pretty solid, but defending is really tough, and they don't have a lot of prior playoff experience to draw on to help guide them. I would buy or hold their stock over the next three to five years, but I would be braced for a bit of a dip in the performance this year.

The Eagles have proven themselves capable of beating the Patriots this postseason on both sides of the ball. MVP whiffs Ranking all 51 winners. But this is Brady. It could be just as tight as the last time these teams met in the Super Bowl, but it will come with an almost identical result.

The peril of making a Super Bowl prediction, or a prediction in any game involving these Patriots, is there's a very good chance you will be percent correct for as much as 58 minutes and still wrong in the end. In each of those cases, the opposing coaches were guilty of strategic errors that essentially involved underestimating the capability of Brady and his pals to concoct a game-changing comeback.

So even if these Patriots are no longer the most impressive or lethal team, they are probably the most resilient team in the history of American sport. Not falling into that trap. The Eagles might lead Sunday's game, could even dominate, but the Patriots are winning in the end.
