Not so in Minnesota, where Case Keenum took control of the job and let them team on a deep playoff run. But all three of the team’s quarterbacks (Keenum, Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater) are slated for free agency in 2018. Answering their QB dilemma will be the team’s biggest challenge this offseason, but what else is on the docket? Let’s dive in.
When the Patriots announced that Brady would miss his scheduled press availability to spend time with team doctors on Wednesday, nobody seemed overly concerned. This wasn’t the first time Brady was rescheduling his weekly press conference with reporters. We were still at DEFCON 5.
But when the Patriots announced an hour later that Brady was limited at practice with the right hand injury — his throwing hand — the alarm bells began ringing. We were at DEFCON 4, even if every report indicated that Brady would be OK to play in Sunday’s game. In the immediate aftermath, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reported that Brady jammed his hand when someone accidentally ran into him and that X-rays showed no structural damage.
The Patriots punched their ticket to the NFL’s biggest game by pulling off an improbable 24-20 win over Jacksonville. Of course, improbable is basically Tom Brady’s middle name at this point, so maybe we shouldn’t have been surprised by what he did against the Jaguars.
The game between the Eagles and Patriots is a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX, a game that the Patriots won 24-21. Oddsmakers aren’t expecting this year’s Super Bowl to be as close as that one as the Patriots have opened as a 5.5-point favorite.

For the Eagles, this is their third trip to the Super Bowl, and they’re still looking for their first win. Besides their loss to the Patriots, the Eagles also lost to the Raiders 27-10 Maliek Collins Jersey in Super Bowl XV.
