maybe the half time show will be so bad, they just cancel the rest of the game in shame.

Pats in another Superbowl. Justin Bieber half time. For the love of God, why?

The actual game itself...

I think it's going to be a pretty high scoring game. I fancy the Eagles OL to be able to dominate the line of scrimmage enough to mean Philly can consistently move the ball, and if Foles plays like he did in the NFC title game then Philly is going to be unstoppable. I do think James Harrison up against Vaitai could be a real issue for the Eagles, Harrison destroyed Cam Robinson in the AFC title game and has been really good since he came in.

But, I do think the Pats O can move the ball pretty well against the Philly D - they've been hit hard by injuries at LB, and that is the position the Pats attack the most. I don't think they have anyone who can cover Gronk (maybe Jenkins, but if they line up Jenkins over Gronk, Pats will just run at him and Gronk will run him over in the run game) and I fancy Cooks to have another big game. Only issue will be how well the Pats OL can stop the Eagles DL. Expecting to see a lot of chip blocks from the RBs on the DEs, and doubling up on Fletcher Cox.

Obviously fancy the Pats to win - but think it's going to be a 35-31 type of game.

As much as I like the Eagles D Line...I would imagine the Pats will look to get the ball out of Brady's hands quickly to Gronk...and aside from a hit to head i dont see the Eagles being able to cover him

I just hope the Eagles keep it close
