"A couple of the players gave them towels after the Super Bowl press conference".
While Foles stood center stage with Tom Brady at media night, Wentz sat in the stands at the hockey arena and spoke to reporters for about 25 minutes. I got traded for him. What were some of the football questions and football elements that Tom talked about?

Sheppard is looking forward to this weekend's rematch. The Eagles play hard and with great intensity - they play as a true team. They had an incredible season.
Running back LeGarrette Blount played from 2013-16 with the Patriots and won two Super Bowls. But when the Eagles came out, there was booing. The Patriots are an organization that puts the team first and "ME" second.

When Carson Wentz went down with an injury in early December, everyone assumed the magical season of the Eagles was officially over.
I predict the Patriots will beat the Eagles 24-17. Sound familiar? Yeah, it's kind of like what we did in deciding the 45th president.
Chris Gasper: There's this whole sense around this Super Bowl with this team that it's sort of like the last ride. And I think they have one more surprise in store for the sports world.
