Welcome to Super Bowl LII. The Game is being played in Minnesota. It would’ve been a Homecoming for the Vikings, but they got crushed by the Birds in the NFC Championship game, leaving their fans with a Big Sick feeling.
So, it’s the Eagles and the Patriots. Fans of both teams will be Going In Style to the game. Which team will have the Last Flag Flying when the clock strikes 00:00 at U.S. Bank Stadium?
New England barely beat Jacksonville to get into this game, so they’ll have to improve on that Florida Project if they’re going to win back-to-back Super Bowls. Philly hasn’t been favored in any of their playoff games, so they come into this match-up with A Dog’s Purpose. The game is being played indoors, so the field itself will not be Mudbound, which is good. Kick-off is set for 6:40pm ET (yes, It Comes at Night).
If you’ve followed me you know I’m a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan. Is it any Wonder who I’m gonna pick to win the game?
The Eagles? Get Out!
This Shapes up to be a Battle of the Ages – an Unforgettable match – and Justice for the Birds, who lost by a mere Three points to the New England Patriots in 2005. Call it “Eagles vs. Patriots: Chapter Two”, with the latter ready to suffer through a Rough Night.
They say when you Wish Upon a Star, your dreams come true. The City of Philly has been wishing for a Super Bowl Championship for a long, long time. Everyone will be Sleepless the night Before, hoping for a Pitch Perfect performance Sunday night.
Everything, yes Everything will Come down to some Big plays, with All Eyez on the quarterbacks. In the past, Patriots fans were used to Loving Vincent (Wilfork) in these big games to help disrupt the opposing team’s offense, but he’s no longer around to help them.
Instead, Nick Foles will be The Hero of the evening. He’s gonna be a Powerhouse on the field with three TD passes, one In The Fade variety to Zach Ertz, another on a great Leap! by Alshon Jeffery. The Pats will be Beguiled by the imaginative play-calling by Eagles Coach Doug Pederson.
On defense, Fletcher Cox will be Stronger than everyone on the NE offensive line. When he hits Brady it will be the NFL’s version of Beauty and the Beast. While the entire Eagles offensive line will be The Great Wall.
Tom Brady, on the other hand, will be The Disaster Artist. Normally the Boss, he will, instead, end-up crying like a Baby due to a major Fall from grace. The only things that could save New England would be a few Phantom calls by the officials.
Hey – I’m Just Getting Started.
Will there be a Fist Fight at the 47 yard line? One thing’s for sure: Halftime show headliner Justin Timberlake will bring The House down and prove, once Again, that he’s The Greatest Showman.
As for a score – the Patriots will experience a Colossal defeat at the hands of the Eagles – 35-16. (I can hear Patriots fans now: “mother! @#%$&%”). It will be Brady’s Darkest Hour. As he leaves the stadium, he’ll be declared The Bye Bye Man, and Pats coach Bill Belichick will be forced to start Downsizing his expectations for next season. The NFL has always been a Justice League, and so, once again, the better team will win the big game.
SB52 will be Legendary. The Fate of the outcome is up to the players. Some will be Furious – and Only The Brave will prevail. My advice: bet All the Money in the World on #FlyEaglesFly.
And The Post-game celebration will be Epic, with the Gifted Foles and his teammates joining The Golden Circle of Super Bowl champs, bringing the NFL title Home Again to Philadelphia after 58 years. This game will be forever be known as The Killing of a Sacred dynasty.
The next two Super Bowls cities are Atlanta and Miami. Detroit is hoping to host Super Bowl LV.
Have a Good Time watching the game, everybody!
