Once again, Super Bowl LII will be starring one of the greatest Quarterbacks of all time.

This unordinary individual, of course, is Tom Brady of the New England Patriots.

With the reigning Super Bowl champion New England appearing in back to back Super Bowls, one may ask, “do they still have it in them to win again?”

Come Sunday, Feb. 4, we will know the answer to that question.

Joining the Pats in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis is the underdog Philadelphia Eagles.

These NFC underdogs are looking to win their first Super Bowl championship. Without a doubt this journey will not be easy as expected, but with Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles performing well as of late, it should be a great game to watch.

Meanwhile, Brady is set to appear in his eight Super Bowl since he emerged onto the scene in 2001.

Of those eight, he holds the record, with five Super Bowl championships. At the age of 40, Brady is still looking young with many more playing years in him, as he has stated repeatedly.

As for Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick, he may soon retire within the next few years, but before he does, he wants to be remembered as one of the greatest coaches in the game.

Per usual, New England ranked atop the AFC in seeding and in multiple statistical categories; with the Brady-Belichick duo, they can obviously continue to dominate.

Unlike others, this team is a very fundamental team, and relies so much on strategy. Due to this, some say Brady might once again win the title because of his experience in big time situations.

Meanwhile the Eagles, under Head Coach Doug Pederson, seek their first title in 58 years — the last time the Eagles won the NFL Championship was before the Super Bowl era (1960).

Losing starting Quarterback and potential-MVP candidate Carson Wentz, one of the best dual-threat QBs this season, was supposed to be a disadvantage to the team. But thanks to Foles for stepping up, all hope is alive.

Foles has the team on his back, supporting and motivating him on a daily basis, which is giving him a winning mentality like never before.

Philadelphia is rising again at last, and with hopes of taking home a title.

The Patriots and Eagles both come from a different path leading into Super Bowl LII, but with heart and belief, one team will be crowned the Super Bowl champ. New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles both come from a different path, but with heart and believe they went a long way, now finally in the Super Bowl.

Late on February 4, one team will be pronounced as national champions of the world.

With Tom Brady going for his sixth ring, there is desperate need for one team to make the change and not let the Patriots hold the throne.

My prediction: the Philadelphia Eagles will take over. I believe the Eagles will win and with that being said, 2018 will mark a change for all teams in the NFL, with the Eagles clinching their first Super Bowl title.
