Gronkowski misses Patriots practice, Brady limited as Super Bowl looms

Not at the moment, however.

The New England Patriots, based near Boston, and Philadelphia Eagles will play in the Super Bowl on February 4.

"Let's talk about distractions", Brady said. But this is straight enemy mode right now. "Just put on that [AFC championship game against] Jacksonville".

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?"

"There was no congratulations or anything", Blount said.

"I think you have to do both because I don't think you can discount what they do well", he said weighing whether to focus more on perfecting what they do well or countering the opponent's strengths. "They play for that team, and I play for my team". They're a great team.

The biggest news to come out of the Patriots camp in the last week emerged Saturday when tight end Rob Gronkowski participated in football-specific drills.

"I need proof", Capalbo said. With the Eagles this season, he had five sacks during the regular season and then turned up his game against the Vikings.

If you're hoping to attend the Super Bowl, the best piece of advice right now is to wait. "He trusted in his ability, and trusted in me as the head coach and putting him in ideal situations and situations to be successful on the field". He was with the Patriots all through training camp and the preseason before being released in the final round of roster cuts.

The Eagles' trip to Super Bowl LII has the Philadelphia area awash in green, and that's translating into more green for local businesses.

"Guys were just, 'Hey, next man up.' That's the mentality we've had all year long", Wentz said. The Panthers' John Kasay, one of the league's most reliable kickers, sent the kickoff following the tying TD out of bounds with 1:08 remaining. Coach [Doug] Pederson, ever since he got here, just establishing that culture.

"There's no better game, there's nothing after the Super Bowl". "But I have a lot of respect for Nick Foles".

Alexis Sanchez's move from Arsenal to Manchester United has dominated the January transfer window, and one high-profile Gunners fan is delighted to see the back of the Chile worldwide. However, after a valiant effort in the AFC Conference Championship, SAXonville came up just short, losing in a typical "Tom Brady" fashion. Now he is one win away from joining Hostetler and becoming only the 10th quarterback to go from the bench at the start of the season to a Super Bowl victory. The result was three turnovers, including a 50-yard interception return for a game-tying touchdown in the first quarter by Patrick Robinson after former Patriot Chris Long got a piece of Keenum's arm causing the pass to be underthrown.

The Eagles have played the underdog role since quarterback Carson Wentz was lost for the season with a torn ACL. "I have a lot of respect for Bill and that organization".
