Tom Brady and Nick Foles emerge as Super Bowl MVP favorites

Brady also had to battle a significant cut on his throwing hand.

Brady detailed his injury, which happened when his right thumb was "bent back" after he collided with running back Rex Burkhead on a handoff attempt during a workout last Wednesday.

Another hurdle was the opponent.

The Patriots were down 10 points in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship Game against the Jaguars, but there was no panic and eventually there was a victory.

The New England Patriots overcame a 10-point deficit on Sunday to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars and reach the Super Bowl.

"It's just been an unbelievable run, and I think everyone should be really proud of what we accomplished", the 40-year-old Brady said.

Foles replaced the injured Wentz in Game 13 and finished off a rise from last place last season to first in the NFC East. I milked the cows with my grandpa and just kind of tended the farm. It's not always great.

Tom Brady has established himself as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play, but Lane Johnson isn't cutting him any slack.

"So we're fortunate to have him on our team". The Jaguars were the best team in the league that year and they knew it. "It won't be a problem in a couple weeks".

Eagles defensive end Chris Long, who played on New England's 2017 Super Bowl champions, said they expected to shut down Minnesota.


The New England Patriots are early 5.5 favorites in Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles. White broke the Super Bowl record for the most receptions by a player in a single game with 14, and arguably should have won MVP honors instead of Tom Brady.

"It's none of my business, I just keep doing my job and do what I can do", Nate Solder said in the locker room this afternoon in regards to Gronkowski's concussion.

"We'll start all over again", head coach Doug Marrone explained.

Patricia received a bunch of attention during the CBS broadcast of the AFC title game, with reaction shots after big plays by Jacksonville and coaching between plays while on his headset. "It hasn't sunk in". He hopes to have them removed this week, and he doesn't expect the injury to be an issue once Super Bowl week arrives.

In response, some of the players wore dog masks after their win against Atlanta, inspiring fans to get their own.

The game will take place at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday, February 4th.

It was an unbelievable day for the Wynn Las Vegas sports book bettor who swept the board, winning all four of his six-figure wagers on Jacksonville, the Jaguars-Patriots under (45½) and on the Eagles in the first half and the game. Brady counts for two of those times, while both Manning brothers (Eli twice), Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Joe Flacco have also won.

There may be an answer to the latter.

"My grandpa was a farmer", Brady said on the local radio program. "We changed a lot of peoples minds, got them thinking about us in a positive light".
