Story: The last time these 2 teams played there was a parade 2 days later down Broad Street ending with “Hungry Dogs run faster!”. I spent that day going from bar to bar that I frequent, painted as The Philly Sports Guy doing Eagles chants and singing the fight song, ending at my brothers house to watch with my family the Eagles win their first Super Bowl Championship. Amazed at the 4th and Goal “Philly Philly” call that will forever live in bronze at the Linc. My jeans were just about ripped off as I went to celebrate with everyone on Mac Dade Boulevard and makeup was smeared from crying over this Eagles win. The oncoming flu that came prohibited me from attending the parade, however I had a fantastic seat to watch all the festivities and the most epic celebratory speech I have ever heard by Jason Kelce. I will never forget the feeling of jubilation once the Hail Mary fell incomplete, and the eruption of millions of Eagles fans around the world. WORLD CHAMPIONS! I am sure it is something that every living Eagles fan will never forget!
Ridiculous Tom Brady Facts:
(1) Tom has 3 receptions throughout his career. His longest reception was for 36 yards vs the Eagles. He has only been targeted once in all his playoff appearances, again against the Eagles in Super Bowl 52. We all know how that turned out.
(2) Tom has 68 yards rushing against the Eagles in 4 regular season games played. That averages to 17 yards per game. The only double digit yards he has against any team. The next closest team is the Jaguars at 9.3 yards per game.
(3) Tom has lost more games in November (17) than in any other month.
(4) Tom has been sacked more times (41) and has been intercepted more (14) by NFC East teams than any other NFC division.

Current Line: Eagles +3.5 O/U 44.5 ML Eagles +160

Prediction: This is going to be a tough game all the way around. Can it be called a revenge game for the Patriots? I don’t think so. They are the reigning Super Bowl champs in the most boring Super Bowl ever played, so even if they want to use that as fodder to get up for this game I don’t believe it. Belichek is a good enough coach that I don’t think he needs to use such nonsense to motivate his team. This game will be decided by the defenses. Since the return of the Eagles CB’s they have gone from last in the league to 16th. Jalen Mills, Maddox, and even Darby have done a much better job against the most recent opponents. This game is going to be won in the trenches. Our scheme against Brady must have him nervous about getting hit. We will have to play tight coverage and blitz early to get Brady off his game. Consequently, this is another game where we must run between the tackles. The Pats D is good. 1st in total yards, points and 3rd down conversion, and 2nd against the pass, but only 11th against the run and teams get away from that game plan because they are typically behind. This can not be one of those games where we get away from the run. It needs to be a heavy dose of Howard and Sanders running north-south. If the Eagles are able to stick with that game plan and control the ball, we will win this game.
