Patriots blow this one out. Over at half-time. This will be the first Patriots blow out ever.
Foles gets sacked.

I am hoping for the Eagles to win - don't care how or by how much.

But, for my pick 'em league, I picked Pats 37-10 in not only the coldest Super Bowl ever, but the most boring.

The Eagles are a complete team. The Pats are a one man show. Without Brady, no way are the Pats even a playoff contender, let alone a Super Bowl contender. The Eagles beat the Pats with a back up QB. Foiles looked amazing. I would have liked the Eagles to have played better D, but the D stepped up when it really mattered.

For me the key was that NE played very unimaginative defense and did not adjust at all as the game went on. They basically just sat back in coverage and gave Foles all the time in the world to complete mostly short to medium passes. I don't recall a single third down stop until the final FG. Granted the Eagles have a great front line, and obviously that's a big part of it, but NE needed to do something at least to try to disrupt his rhythm but did not. I thought NE did well to stay competitive despite the poor defense and kicking glitches.

Help me out.

I can think of any number of reasons why NE will win, but have no answers why Philly will.

What am I missing with the Eagles?

This is why I don't gamble or play fantasy football......Congratulations to the Eagles and their fans!
