The Super Bowl is set, and ESPN is taking its first look at the matchup of the Patriots and the Eagles. First, there are the obvious factors: New England has Brady and Belichick and that duo somehow has a chance to win three championships in four years for the second time in their partnership. The Eagles’ fearful defense pressuring Brady and forcing turnovers is Philadelphia’s best antidote to the Patriots’ superior offense. ESPN highlights Patriots receiver Danny Amendola and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins as potential game heroes, with Amendola’s elite route-running and Jenkins’ versatility in coverage giving both squads reason for optimism.
