The big game is here.
The Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots meet Sunday in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota. It’s a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX when New England won 24-21 on Feb. 6, 2005, in Jacksonville. Here are the Star-Telegram staff predictions:
The Super Bowl is all about quarterback play. The Eagles' defense is great, but give me Tom Brady over Nick Foles any day of the week. Patriots 26, Eagles 24.
The Evil Empire continues to run over the Rebel Alliance, otherwise known as the rest of the NFL. Pats cover. Patriots 31, Eagles 26.

Philadelphia will finally get over the Super Bowl hump and keep the Patriots from getting No. 6. Eagles 24, Patriots 21.
How do you bet against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick? You don't. Patriots 27, Eagles 24.
