Today’s the day. It’s Super Bowl 52, when NFL fans across the globe sing Fly Eagles Fly as they face the hated Patriots.
Outside of New England and what is a fairly sizable Patriots bandwagon, they are a loathed franchise. They were also the team most predicted to reach and win the Super Bowl.
The Eagles were considered the most likely team to unseat them much of last season. That was until they lost star quarterback Carson Wentz. But even with Nick Foles stepping in as the starter, the Eagles have not lost stride. As a team, they can beat the Patriots. So long as Foles doesn’t fold. If Eli Manning could do it twice, Foles can too.
