Patriots-Eagles to Meet in Super Bowl 52
Super Bowl 52 is set.
The New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will play for the Lombardi Trophy on Sunday February 4, 2018.
AFC Championship highlights:
For the Patriots' Tom Brady and Bill Belichick it will be their eighth Super Bowl appearance - they're currently 5-2 in previous league championship games. This after a fourth quarter rally that allowed the Pats to knock off the Jaguars 24-20. For the Eagles - coming off a 38-7 stomping of the Vikings - it will be just their third attempt for the franchise's first title.
On paper, the Brady over Nick Foles matchup certainly favors the Pats. Although, Foles did look great in that rout of Minnesota, tossing several deep pinpoint-passes with two resulting in scores: a 53-yard TD pass to Alshon Jeffrey and an incredible 41-yard connection with Torrey Smith.
NFC Championship highlights:
The line opened at 5.5, which ESPN reports is the largest SB spread since 2009.
Super Bowl 52 will be televised on NBC this year (6:30). WIBX 950, via Westwood One Sports, will again be your local radio home. Justin Timberlake will provide the half-time entertainment.
