The Patriots are legitimately the most dominant, successful franchise in 21st century American sports.
The Philadelphia Eagles are a team that has gone 57 seasons without a championship. Las Vegas has perched the Eagles as a 5.5 point underdog against the Patriots despite blowing out the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship game.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ defense has the arduous task of stop a Tom Brady-led offense who turned the tables on the Jacksonville Jaguars in the fourth quarter of the AFC Championship Game.
The Pats wiped out a Jags 10-point lead in the fourth quarter and won 24-20 to advance to Sunday’s big game. An undrafted free agent and six year NFL veteran, Eagles safety, Rodney McLeod’s will play in his first Super Bowl. The ultimate dream for any safety would be to get that golden opportunity to get an interception on the game’s best quarterback.
So is an INT in his future?
“Man, honestly, I’m hoping to get one, at least one off Tom Brady,”
Rodney McLeod told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson on the Scoop B Radio Podcast.
“But, at the end of the day I’m not going to go out there and try to make these, you know, legendary plays.”
McLeod plans to play like he always does. “Just be myself, make the plays that come to me and if it’s my chance to get that interception, I’m going to make the most of it,” he said.
“But I’m planning on hopefully getting that Tom Brady ball, this is my first time going against him. So, what better way than the Super Bowl to get an interception versus the Hall of Famer, Tom Brady.”
