    Pathetic defensive display both teams.

    Foles needs to stop throwing high so much, makes them lose their stride.

    Worst defense in a Super Bowl since last year's first half.

    I was wondering why Belichick wasn't calling a TO, then he does it with 45 seconds let instead of 1 minute and 40 seconds+. This is like the second SB vs the Giants where he let them walk into the endzone with less than a minute left instead of letting them do it at 2 minutes.

    I was wondering the same thing. Poor clock management, which is so commonplace in the NFL.

    At least the Patriots get the ball to start the second half. . .

    Pats should have about 1 minute 30 seconds to work with but Belichick let the time run for no reason.

    Better pass to Foles than to Brady

    Not worried. 10 points not insurmountable with Brady at the helm.

    Foles catches it on a trick play, 4th amd goal.

    Foles caught the ball. Brady missed his.

    What a gutsy call by Pederson, and great execution by Burton and Foles. Good to see Foles with the receiving TD.

    Odd that both teams have attempted a pass to their QB.

    As an Eagles fan I am thankful Belichick is not using Burkhead after that big play.

    The Pats need to score a TD after halftime (and get a 2-pt conversion) or this one could be over. The Eagles are great with a lead and haven’t let anyone come back on them this year. Pederson isn’t going to alter his play-calling the way Atlanta and Jacksonville did...

    We know the Patriots have to make it dramatic.

    NFL defenses should be allowed to play 12 men, because most of them are so awful.

    This halftime show is awful. I wish they would have had some BLM millitant black rapper instead. That would have been more entertaining

    Strangely enough, I wouldn't be too upset if the Eagles win this one. They are not an odious, reprehensible team like Pete's plantation, the Raiders, Giants, etc.

    However, I'm sure most, if not all of CF would still prefer a NE victory, if only because of their recent status as a white friendly team, though not this year. It's more of a perceived thing more than anything else, with that incompetent coal black defense and only 3/5 white offensive line.

    Hogan has 83 yards, Amendola has 75 yards, Burkhead has 46 yards, and Gronk has 9 yards. Offensively, they are very different from the Eagles and need to find a way this game. It doesn’t look good, but anything can happen after halftime.
