NFL predicts Patriots-Vikings Super Bowl?

Blake Bortles being the worst quarterback to take snaps on this stage since Mark Sanchez complicates matters for the underdogs, but he has shown signs of competence this season.

Fifteen years after being unceremoniously booted by the franchise he shaped, Coughlin is back in the front office, where he has helped guide the team in one of the league's smallest markets to within two wins of the championship he came oh-so close to the first time around.

In May, a CG Technology bettor made three futures wagers on the Jaguars to win the Super Bowl for a total of $3,200 to win $337,500. It returned a fumble for a touchdown and created a big turnover that led to points.

"I was out there", he said.

Before we get to the lines for the penultimate week of the season, let's look at some things we learned this 2017-18 season. You can call him a system quarterback. He and Jermey Parnell did well to keep Steelers' edge defenders off Bortles, helping him to find open men in a surprisingly effective performance. "It will never change for me". It's the highest level of football there is in the world. "I mean, they've got a lot of good football players". "There were some guys here that were before Coach Zimmer, so I think a lot of it is a testament to what he's done with these guys and really brought everyone up to speed". "I'm happy to be able to continue to play for another week".

"They have some fast players". People like Jadeveon Clowney.

On Sunday, we laughed and laughed at the Pittsburgh Steelers and their hubris. Harrison became one of the best linebackers of his generation because of his smash-mouth attitude as a run defender.

Fournette left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury, but did return to the game in the second half.

It is still a Patriots defense that allowed 14.0 points per game the last 12 contests of the regular season.

"I feel like the more we play together, the more confident we get and the better our communication gets and all of that stuff", he said.

New England's defense isn't great, but they can be good enough here.

In order for the Patriots to win they have to win some of these matchups throughout the game.

Well, under the 61-year-old defensive guru, the Vikings have steadily improved, culminating this season when they led the league in scoring defense (15.8 points) and team defense (275.9 yards). Their offense proved they didn't have to rely exclusively on their defense during their last outing, putting up 45 points, eliminating the Pittsburg Steelers from the 2018 NFL Playoffs.

Calais Campbell tossed a pair of dice over a Monopoly board last March as he prepared to make the biggest decision of his professional life.

"He's what I aspire to be at 39", Reilly said.

The one assistant coach who might deserve the most credit is Vikings Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur. We definitely felt y'all.

Still, as Sunday afternoon's game against the upstart Jaguars approaches, a contest that will determine who represents the AFC in the Super Bowl on February 4, New Englanders should pause to soak it all in.

Gunning for yet another Super Bowl appearance in the Bill Belichick era, the New England Patriots aren't facing the team most envisioned. He's arguably facing one of the toughest games of his historic career and there's no way he doesn't play. As they hit the road for Philadelphia to face a team they're 0-3 against in the postseason, here's a look at what happened in those last five championship round losses for Minnesota.
