Super Bowl LII Philadelphia - New England US Bank Stadium Minneapolis, Minnesota 6:30 P.M.  The Patriots enter the game looking for their sixth win while the Eagles look for their first title in the Super Bowl era.  

How Philadelphia wins.  On offense:  The Eagles must establish the run between the tackles to take pressure off Nick Foles and go on time consuming drives to keep Tom Brady off the field.  Use underneath pass patterns as part of this strategy.  Take shots down field and allow Foles the opportunity to extend plays and find receivers.  Especially finish scoring chances in the red zone.  Protect the ball and avoid penalties.  Avoid long yardage situations.  

On defense:  Protect the perimeter and force New England to run inside as the Patriots do not have an inside game.  Use its front four to pressure Brady, keep seven in coverage, and use the blitz sparingly as Brady can pick apart blitzes.  Force Brady to throw on the run as he has no lateral movement.  Take away tight end Rob Gronkowski and force Brady to find other targets.  Occasionally force Brady to throw downfield as he cannot throw the deep ball accurately, but continue to force Brady to throw underneath.  

How New England wins.  On offense:  The Patriots must find a run game that has been nonexistent and get to the outside.  Use crossing patterns and screens.  The front line must keep the Eagles front four from getting to the quarterback.  Gronkowski must get open.  

 

On defense:  Use special teams play to force the Eagles to drive the length of the field.  Tighten coverage in the red zone.  Limit the big play and force Foles to throw underneath.  Use the edge rushers to keep Foles in the pocket and the tackles to collapse the pocket.  Stop the run and get off the field on third down.  

Philadelphia 21 New England 17.

Super Bowl LII.  Philadelphia 41 New England 33.  Both defenses got shredded in this game as offenses combined for 1151 yards of total offense.  The Eagles rushed for 164 yards, but of that in the fourth quarter.  Both defenses missed tackles, some in the open and some behind the line of scrimmage, some of them contributing to big plays.  Both teams attempted trick plays, a circle route to the quarterback.  The Patriots missed theirs when Tom Brady had the ball go through his hands and the Eagles executed theirs for a touchdown and a 22-12 halftime lead.  In the end, it was Brady who missed open receivers, two failures to convert chances in the red zone to touchdown, settling for a field goal on the first possession and a missed attempt when the snap went through the holder's hands.  

     The Eagles were able to get pressure on Brady but failed to tackle him before finally getting a strip sack fumble with under two minutes left and converting into a field goal.  New England got an interception near their own goal line on a tipped ball and converting that into six points when the Eagles got called for defensive holding on third down deep in the Patriots' end of the field.  Philadelphia converted 10 of 16 third down chances, one when the Patriots' secondary forgot where the first down marker was on a third and long.  The Eagles' also converted on fourth down near midfield on their game winning touchdown march.

Seattle - A crook attempts to break into a Toyota with, of all things, a mop.  After 17 attempts to smash the driver's side window, our suspect climbed up the stairway near the pickup and leaps onto the roof hoping to gain more leverage.  He lost his balance and fell off hitting the pavement face first.  He was also charged with being drunk.
