The Lombardi Trophy winner and Super Bowl LII predictions are in, all bets are closed, the prayers are sent and Minnesota is rocking. It’s time to take a look at exactly who owns the glory, who takes the stage, and which team wins it all.
The NFL playoffs are special, but the Super Bowl is magical as it’s where legends are made, heroes are born, and also heroes are fallen.
For those outside of Philadelphia, the outcome of Sunday’s game may have an obvious finish. But, for Philadelphia Eagles fans across the land, the improbable has never stopped their hearts from believing in the seemingly impossible. Make no mistake about it, this is the year of the Eagles as they’ll be victorious when all is said and done in Super Bowl LII.
The Eagles key to winning the game
There is however only one way for the Eagles to finally reach the pinnacle of their football season. Simply, get to Tom Brady, before he gets to them. This means, before the play develops, before the ball gets out of his hands, before the suspicious and ridiculous— get to Brady.
No quarterback is immune to being disrupted or thrown off balance by the defense. In fact, the Eagles defense has done just that the entire season. As they have the better defense heading into Super Bowl LII, the Eagles are ranked fourth in yards and points allowed per game.

Yes, the New England Patriots are ranked fifth with points allowed. But against a fast and angry Eagles defense and an equally high-powered offense; this may breed a much different outcome than most of us expect.
Why not the Eagles?
Before you answer, keep in mind that no team, nor coach is infallible. Fortunately, in SB’s against the Seattle Seahawks, Atlanta Falcons, and the AFC Championship Jacksonville Jaguars, fate has handed Doug Pederson the map.
Those past matchups are now the necessary blueprints of what must be done in keeping the pressure on when leading against the Patriots. Will Pederson utilize every tool in the box to pull this one off? Absolutely, yes. The Eagles have everything they need to win. Hopefully, they keep in mind —no guts, no glory, no Lombardi.
And so, Sunday, this Eagles team forge not only a permanent place in the hearts of each player, coach, and fan, but also onto the list with the other teams who have won the Lombardi trophy.
