Eagles Open as Biggest Super Bowl Underdogs Since 2009

Eagles Open as Biggest Super Bowl Underdogs Since 2009

Oddsmakers like the chances of Tom Brady winning a sixth Super Bowl ring, making the New England Patriots almost a touchdown favorite to beat the Philadelphia Eagles.

When the Eagles meet the Patriots in Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, it will mark the fourth time in five years that the top seeds in the NFC and AFC have battled for the National Football League championship.

The Eagles will look for the first Super Bowl title in franchise history.

"I'm so happy for Nick and the offense", said coach Doug Pederson, "and for Nick, everything he's been through and battled, he stayed the course and we all believed in him". "Brady is an absolute anomaly".

The Eagles, who are considered by many to be the underdogs, will have some stiff competition against the defending champions. The Patriots will try to match the Pittsburgh Steelers' six Super Bowl trophies when they face the Eagles (15-3) on February 4 in Minneapolis.

But the closest thing to a lock in this gambling city is that betting on this Super Bowl will smash the existing record of $138.5 million set just a year ago. Rosenhaus said the team is underrated.

Brian from Aston, Pennsylvania said he took advantage of a day off from work to purchase fresh Eagles gear. "They have a terrific group of skill position players". Has he matured or do other teams just better tolerate a lack of focus? The Philadelphia Eagles had the best defense on Sunday.

The Eagles' winning recipe also includes running backs Jay Ajayi and LeGarrette Blount, Rosenhaus said.

New England quarterback Tom Brady rallied his team in the final minutes for a comeback victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the American Football Conference championship.

"There was a time in Nick Foles' career where he was a pro ball MVP", said Rosenhaus.

Hours after Brady's game-winning 4-yard TD pass to Danny Amendola with 2:48 remaining in Foxborough, the Eagles won for the fourth time in five tries under Foles.

It hasn't mattered. Instead, the perceived disrespect has fueled an improbable Eagles run to the big game, punctuated by a 38-7 annihilation of the Vikings in the NFC title game Sunday night that was over by halftime.

Like their forebears of 1998 and 2009, this year's Vikings appeared to be Super Bowl-ready, road favorites against the NFC's top playoff seed.
