No franchise in the modern era has tasted so much success as the Bill Belichick and Tom Brady led New England Patriots, and it is the five-time Super Bowl Champions who head into Minnesota as red hot favorites once again this year. 13 and 3 in the regular season, the Patriots mastered the AFC East with relative ease to sweep into the playoffs as the number 1 seed.

They had no trouble dismantling the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional round, with Brady finding Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski with relative ease to throw for 337 yards and three touchdowns. The conference championship was a different matter entirely though as they were given an almighty fright at home by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Trailing by ten late, Amendola produced just about the best ten minutes of his career to score TD’s including a twinkle-toed catch at the back of the end zone to win the game.

Also 13-3 in the regular season, the Eagles headed into the playoffs as the NFC’s top seed, but hopes were dimmed somewhat due to the loss of the man who had paved the way to the bulk of those 13 wins, namely Quarterback, Carson Wentz. That loss hasn’t quite proven to be the season-ending hammer blow many anticipated though as Nick Foles has returned to the fold with aplomb.

Efficient in steering his side past the Falcons in what was a closely fought divisional round scrap, Foles was simply sensational in tearing the vaunted Minnesota Vikings defense apart in what turned into a blowout in the conference championship game.

Fourth in total defense and seventh in total offense, there is an argument that Philadelphia is the more rounded team here, particularly if Foles can continue his explosive form. Overall though we feel that Tom Brady may prove to be the difference between the sides.

Good as Foles was against the Vikings, Brady’s body of work bears comparison with any Quarterback in history and there is no one we would rather have on our side with the game on the line. Not that Brady needs any more incentive, but should he lead the Patriots to victory once again, he will become the first player in the history of the NFL to win six Superbowl rings.

This may be tight, particularly if the Eagles can work Jay Ajayi into the game on the ground but ultimately we see the Patriots coming out on top.

Tip: New England to win by 1-6 points at 3/1 with bet365
