The Tom Brady-led New England Patriots come into Super Bowl LII as the favorites, and while there’s no reason to question that title based off the team’s history, they aren’t guaranteed to leave U.S. Bank Stadium with their sixth Super Bowl title.
The Philadelphia Eagles are one of the best teams the Patriots have faced in the eight Super Bowl appearances of the Brady-Bill Belichick era, and there’s a good chance the five-time champions will be involved in yet another one-possession game.
With the game expected to be tight, the smallest details will make the difference in Minneapolis on Sunday night, which means certain position groups that have flown under the radar for parts of the season have to come to the forefront to make difference-making plays.

The deciding game of the NFL season kicks off Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. ET when the Philadelphia Eagles face off against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. The Patriots are playing in their record tenth Super Bowl, with eight coming during the past 17 years of the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era.
A win on Sunday would be the Patriots’ sixth Super Bowl title and tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most all time. It would also mark the ninth time in NFL history a team won back-to-back Super Bowls, with the Pats the last to pull off the trick in 2004-05.
The Eagles are appearing in their third Super Bowl in franchise history and still chasing their first win (they lost games following the 1980 and 2004 seasons). Las Vegas has the Pats favored by 4-½ points but at least one gambler placed a seven-figure bet on the Eagles.
Prediction: Patriots 23, Eagles 17
