the New England Patriots look to repeat being Super Bowl champs by winning the sixth title in the franchise’s history. The Philadelphia Eagles, on the other hand, are seeking their first Super Bowl title and are back in the big game for the first time since 2005, when they lost 24-21 to — who else? — Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Why the Patriots will win
Tom Brady. Bill Belichick.
Why the Eagles will win
The Eagles’ defensive line is deep and will be able to pressure the 40-year-old Brady all game without the Eagles needing to blitz very often. Backup quarterback Nick Foles, playing in place of the injured Carson Wentz, will continue his stellar performance in the playoffs and make big plays while limiting turnovers. Running back LeGarrette Blount will run with power against his former team and find the end zone at least once.
Who’s calling the game?
Al Michael and Cris Collinsworth will be in the broadcast booth with Michele Tafoya reporting from the sidelines.
Who’s performing at halftime?
Justin Timberlake headlines the Pepsi Super Bowl LII halftime show.
