Patriots QB talks hand recovery, Rob Gronkowski return

39;Tom vs. Time' shows how Tom Brady combats his age to stay at the top of his game

Tom Brady also was a backup in 2001 before taking over for injured Drew Bledsoe in Week 3 and leading the Patriots to their first Super Bowl title.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski dubbed him Danny "Playoff" Amendola after the veteran slot receiver led the team with 11 receptions and 112 yards in the Patriots 35-14 win over the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round. The Philadelphia Eagles swear they won't fall into that trap if they have the chance in Super Bowl 52. But that's okay. The trade off is not being in the Super Bowl at all, right? Last year's six-point victory was their largest margin of victory in all their Super Bowls.

"I think they have their strengths, we have ours". This is the only event we make a line that depends on public opinion.

"It's that much sweeter when people don't believe in you and people count you out".

When is the Super Bowl?

Shortly after the Philadelphia Eagles had successfully defeated the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship Game, the matchup in Super Bowl LII between the Eagles and the New England Patriots was set. Brady hit Amendola along the left sideline for 17 yards and a first down. However, in games against the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys, Foles played poorly and the Eagles ended the regular season with a bitter taste in their mouths. Weren't the Vikings one of the best third-down defenses in the league? But Rodney Harrison plucked a McNabb pass for a game-sealing interception, and New England got the win. Yet Tom Coughlin and his staff outcoached Bill Belichick and his assistants, and a New England squad that averaged almost 37 points was befuddled by New York's pressure D.

"It may have seemed seamless (without Gronkowski), but it really wasn't", Brady said. The northern city won the Super Bowl bid by beating out New Orleans and Indianapolis.

Since the start of last season, New England is 12-1 without Gronk.

Take part in our 15-question quiz below, then tune in to Super Bowl LII, live on Sky Sports Action from 10pm on Sunday, February 4. Of course, improbable is basically Tom Brady's middle name at this point, so maybe we shouldn't have been surprised by what he pulled off against the Jaguars.

"I'm still working on it", said the five-time Super Bowl champion.

Are you still shaking your head over this one? "We know that, and we're going to go out and have fun against Brady".
