Heading into Super Bowl LII, the Philadelphia Eagles are clearly the underdogs to believe in against the New England Patriots.
As fans of the New York Jets, it truly is hard to continue witnessing the success of the Evil Empire, I mean, the New England Patriots. They’ve embarrassed the Jets year in, year out, and continue to be the team to beat in the AFC East for what seems like forever now. With Super Bowl LII on the horizon, the Philadelphia Eagles are easily the underdogs to believe in.
While many thought teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers or Jacksonville Jaguars could have dethroned the Patriots to even get this far in the NFL Playoffs, nobody stood a chance. With quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick running a flawless football team, it’s hard to envision any team beating the Patriots in a football game, let alone in the biggest game of the year.
But here we are. The Patriots are just one game away from winning their sixth Super Bowl championship under this regime and well, if there is any team to root for and hope they can do the unthinkable, it’s the Eagles.
No team in the AFC stood a chance against the Patriots but the NFC boasted some pretty solid and consistent teams, with the Eagles being the best of the best. They have an amazing offense that even with quarterback Nick Foles running the ship, have done very well despite Carson Wentz being out for the season due to a torn ACL injury.

The Eagles defense is stout and will undoubtedly bring the pressure against one of the most clutch offenses in the NFL. If the Eagles stand a chance, they have to get to Brady to the point where he’s frazzled. They need to go after him like there is no tomorrow and if they can, the Eagles offense should be able to outscore them.
For Super Bowl LII, us Jets fans have to hope that the Eagles can do what others have failed to do for years now and that’s to beat a dynasty to finally end their reign. While the Patriots will clearly be the favorites to win in the big game, the Eagles are the underdogs to believe in since they have a complete team capable to get the job done. Plus it would be great to see the Eagles win their first Super Bowl championship in franchise history.
Anything but seeing Brady and Belichick raising another Super Bowl trophy for yet another time.
