Eagles Take Flight To Minnesota; Fans Give Team Super Sendoff

Posted January 29, 2018

The Eagles will also want to minimize their own distractions, something that Brady and the Patriots do better than every other team in the NFL.

After getting stitches in his right hand and thumb prior to the AFC championship game last week, quarterback Tom Brady was on the practice field Saturday, gripping the ball without a glove on his throwing hand. We assume the Eagles are okay with this. Of course, improbable is basically Tom Brady's middle name at this point, so maybe we shouldn't have been surprised by what he pulled off against the Jaguars.

The one slightly humorous aspect to this comes from how Vikings fans acted towards the Saints when we beat them two weekends ago, to how the Eagles fans treated Vikings fans once we lost to them this weekend.

The Eagles have certainly been effective in putting the squeeze on opponents this season. All they had to do was run the dang ball to stay in free range of a field goal and put the game away with Matt Bryant's leg.

Last Sunday, Brady again turned to Amendola to save the season.

"The Eagles have a tremendous offensive line", he said. Edelman, Gronkowski and Shane Vereen were the Pats' biggest weapons in that fourth-quarter comeback, at the time the largest in Super Bowl history. Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer said he should have had his team ready to play more than they were. "I wish it was four". They were clutching an eight-point lead with just under six minutes left to play.

"It's pretty insane. It's incredible to be on a team that wins games this way". Brady threw two interceptions in that game, including one that Malcolm Jenkins returned 99 yards for a touchdown. I never have seen a team where there's no selfishness. Everything's going to be written about it, has been written about it, talked about it, discussed, debated and it's about us. If only to avoid the mistakes they've made in the past. "We know that, and we're going to go out and have fun against Brady". Per ESPN Stats & Information, Brady completed 59 percent of his passes when under pressure this season - by far the best rate in the National Football League - with 10 touchdowns and two interceptions. Now, the Eagles are hoping their dominant defensive front will make a more successful impact on Brady.

But in order to have a chance against arguably the greatest quarterback of all time, they will have to get home.
