Patriots, Eagles take stage for Super Bowl LII Opening Night

The Eagles also used the picks they acquired from the Vikings to draft defensive end Derek Barnett, trade for running back Jay Ajayi, and use cap space to sign Alshon Jeffery. It was his first 1,000-yard season since he did it for Tampa Bay as a rookie in 2010.

"Well, I never want to be a detriment to the team", Brady told a crowd of reporters during Super Bowl Opening Night ahead of Sunday's National Football League title showdown against the Philadelphia Eagles. "You make lifelong friendships". Take heart, Eagles fans: You're welcome here.

"But we don't want to be behind by two or three touchdowns in any game that we play". He has been a big part of the Eagles deep pass rush, contributing five sacks this year. "He's a great guy". I think from an organization standpoint, it shows [Philadelphia] is a tough organization and one that intends on winning and being competitive every year. I don't care what team a quarterback is on, if they're great at what they do and play at such a high level, they will have my respect, regardless of their allegiance.

"That was an unbelievable year for me", Sheppard said in a phone conversation with First Coast News. "That really touched me".

"We always found time to come back here in the summer for a few weeks".

Which brings me back to my point - success is fleeting. A very clutch player.

As a longtime fan of a team that's never been to a Super Bowl, I would love for the Detroit Lions to someday be the target of those haters. I had my sights set on playing in Minneapolis. He's a hell of a player.

But the Bradford trade also allowed the Eagles to make other moves that bolstered their team. They may even get invited for a beer, who knows?

Just hours after landing, the Patriots took the stage and faced the media first.

"Man, I was just about to get him", Mychal Kendricks said. "It's not quite where I want it to be".

"Look, I can't tell you that there won't still be attempts, but I just would suspect that some of them will be far more hard than they were with the Crisco attempts".

"Everyone wants to hate on Nick Foles, but he's done a great job", Van Noy said. "It's got a lot of recovery in it, and that's what I need". He has been coy about the injury since, regularly wearing gloves on both hands. No harm, it's their first Super Bowl berth in 13 years.

Who Pederson is these days is a threat to Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots dynasty.

When Super Bowl LII kicks off Sunday in Minneapolis, it will offer two of the most different head coaches in the history of the NFL's mega-event.

"Very excited", he said of the Eagles. "That's my window right now".

"We just didn't play well enough to win, I didn't coach well enough", Vermeil said.

This seemingly is an annual rite for the Patriots - 32 of them have Super Bowl experience, encompassing 60 games. But he doesn't he it that way.

"It's nearly like they're part of their family", Vermeil said by phone Tuesday. I don't really see myself ... With Butler, I was able to call the play and then my inner being said 'This is unreal.' And that's the word that came out.

"So I don't know, things change quickly".
