After the games of Championship Sunday were contested, I split the picks, getting the AFC one right (boo hiss) and getting the NFC one wrong to stay underwater record wise at 4-6 for these playoffs
Now the big game is upon us at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, and we now have the team everyone loves to hate in the Trump loving New England
Cheatriots Patriots taking on a Philadelphia Eagles team playing for their first NFL championship since 1960.
They have been the underdog in both their NFC playoff games despite their 13-3 record and their number one seed because they lost their staring QB Carson Wentz in Week 14.
And yes, the other thing I love about the Eagles is they are ‘woke’. They have been taking part in the ‘Take A Knee’ protests, and have led efforts in Pennsylvania to push criminal justice reform along with other charitable and community social justice issues.
They are facing a Patriots team that is not only seeking their sixth NFL title, they haven’t lost since the Miami Dolphins upset them 27-20 at Hard Rock Stadium in Week 14
And as we know, they are 45’s and white supremacists favorite NFL team.
So let me get to my Super Bowl pick. While I am rooting for the Eagles to win their first title since 1960, my NFL prognosticator head says I’ll unfortunately have to watch the disgusting spectacle of Tom Brady hoisting the Lombardi trophy again
Patriots to win Super Bowl LII
