  • Super Bowl 2018: Location, Point Spread and Picks for Eagles vs. Patriots

    Don't call Super Bowl LII a rematch of the 2004 Super Bowl clash between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.  Sure, some things are still the same in 2018. Bill Belichick is still the head coach of the Patriots, as he was in 2004. Tom Brady is still lining up under center, too—and, believe it or not, he's playing better now. Brady completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 3,692 yards, 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in the 2003-04 season. Heading into Super Bowl LI, he completed...

The Eagles' underdog label isn't going anywhere, as the New England Patriots are early five-points favorites in Super Bowl LII. Nothing has changed for a team widely discarded...
