It’s only a few hours until kickoff so I guess I should make my Super Bowl predictions.
The Eagles are a good team. Even people who hate Philadelphia have to admit that. They’ve earned their right to play in the Super Bowl this year. Ever since he stepped in and replaced the injured Carson Wentz as quarterback, Nick Foles has been defying the odds and proving the haters wrong.
But the New England Patriots are the best team in the league right now. The Patriots have got Tom Brady, perhaps the greatest quarterback of all time. I expect the Eagles will put a good fight but my final prediction is:
Patriots — 31
Eagles — 17
As always, the final field goal will be kicked by Gus, the field goal-kicking mule.
