Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are attempting to capture their sixth Super Bowl title and third in the last four years when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
The game begins at 6:30 p.m. on NBC.
This is the eighth Super Bowl since the 2001 season that has featured Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots. Another win would give Brady the most Super Bowl rings of any player in the history of the NFL. He’s currently tied at five with Charles Haley.
For the Eagles, this would be their first Super Bowl victory. Their most recent appearance in the Super Bowl was against these same Patriots back in 2004, a game they lost by a narrow margin.
This time, the Eagles will be attempting to take down the Patriots with Nick Foles at quarterback. The backup took over after Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending knee injury before the playoffs.
Otherwise, both teams are coming into the game relatively healthy. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been cleared to play after he suffered a concussion during the AFC Championship Game. A few players on each team battled illness during the week leading up to the game but appear good to go. Brady, who played with stitches in his thumb in the AFC Championship Game, should have no limitations in this one. Super Bowl
