Few events unite spectators across the globe like the Super Bowl. The National Football League’s crowning moment is broadcast to fans in 170 different countries and territories, making it a constant presence among the most watched programs of each year.
He’ll duel with one of the greatest players to ever play the game. Tom Brady made the extraordinary look commonplace two weeks ago, shaking off a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit and pushing the Patriots to their third Super Bowl in four years by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars. While he’s already confirmed his Greatest of All Time (GOAT) status, another ring-winning performance would make it that much tougher for any future upstarts to catch him.

The Patriots are looking to repeat as Super Bowl champions after last year’s epic comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons. Head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have five rings each and are both in the big game for the eighth time in their careers. The Patriots went 13-3 in the regular season and took care of business in the playoffs, including a comeback win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship. Brady is a potential MVP once again.
The Eagles took a much different path to the Super Bowl. They cruised to the NFC’s No. 1 seed on the strength of Carson Wentz, who was getting legitimate MVP buzz before a torn ACL ended his season early. Philly turned to Nick Foles, who has been less consistent than Wentz but has done enough to keep the offense moving. The Eagles rode a tough defense to wins over the Atlanta Falcons and Minnesota Vikings.
