As fans in New England and Philadelphia try to imagine every possible path the Super Bowl could take, The Ringer’s Robert Mays has broken down three foreseeable outcomes. First, it’s easy to imagine Tom Brady and the high-powered Patriots offense generating more than enough scoring, while Nick Foles loses the superstar form he displayed in the NFC Championship game. Or perhaps, it will be Philadelphia’s greatest strengths that dominate Sunday. The Eagles have superior offensive and defensive lines, suggesting that a tougher, more physical game would favor the Eagles in their quest for their first title. Finally, there’s the scenario Eagles fans fear most: Philadelphia plays a great game, but Brady assumes the role of hero to secure a tight victory.
