New England hoping for the same turnout, a Lombardi Trophy, however the Patriots have no doubt in their capabilities of winning again, especially alongside Coach Belichick.
“Talk about a coach that is great at what he does, he puts the players in their strengths,” Patriots Wide Receiver Brandon Cooks said. “He’s not asking us to do anything out of the ordinary and as a player you respect that, (and so) you got to respect him for not trying to impose anything onto us that we probably can’t do well.”
“We just got to be disciplined as a defense,” Patriots Defensive End Trey Flowers said. “(We need to) just allow our self to, ya know when the play comes to us, make those plays but don’t be over committed as far as trying to make a play or stepping out of your element. Just do your job, be disciplined, and be physical.”
The Patriots and the Eagles are set to kick-off on Sunday, February 4 at 5:30p.m. at U.S. Bank Stadium.
