Date for super bowl 2018

It was a substantial improvement for the team under second-year head coach Doug Pederson ; the Eagles finished the two previous seasons with 7—9 records. In the season, the team scored points third in the NFL , while giving up just fourth points.

In just his second season, he recorded a passer rating of His top target was Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz , who caught 74 passes for yards and eight touchdowns. Other contributors were two receivers acquired from off-season free agency: Alshon Jeffery , who caught 57 passes for yards and nine scores; and Torrey Smith , who had 36 receptions for yards. Meanwhile, third-year receiver Nelson Agholor had the best season of his career, hauling in 62 passes for yards and eight touchdowns, a higher total in each category than in his previous two seasons combined.

Blount, an off-season signing who won a Super Bowl with the Patriots, gained rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Ajayi, picked up by a mid-season trade with the Miami Dolphins, rushed for yards and caught 24 passes for yards combined with the two teams. Philadelphia also had a superb offensive line, lead by two Pro Bowl selections: Middle linebacker Nigel Bradham led the team in combined tackles with The Eagles secondary featured Pro Bowl safety Malcolm Jenkins , who had 76 combined tackles and two interceptions, along with cornerback Patrick Robinson , who led the team with four interceptions.

Still, Foles was able to lead the team to victory in that game, as well as the next two. The Eagles lost a meaningless week 17 matchup with the Cowboys led by third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld.

Then in their two playoff games, Foles threw for a combined total of yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. For the 16th time in their 18 seasons under year old coach Bill Belichick , they recorded a double-digit win season, finishing the regular season with a record of 13—3, one of four teams along with Philadelphia, Minnesota, and Pittsburgh with that record.

Early season defensive struggles left the team with a 2—2 record after four weeks, and the worst overall defense in the league at that point. Their sole loss in the latter part of the season came in Week 14 to the Miami Dolphins, a division rival , though they were without star tight end Rob Gronkowski due to a one-game suspension for an unnecessary roughness call the prior week.

The year-old Brady finished his 18th season with a league-leading 4, passing yards, 32 touchdowns and just eight interceptions, earning him his 13th selection to the Pro Bowl and his third league MVP award. One change that helped make up for the loss of Edelman was the acquisition of receiver Brandin Cooks , who caught 65 passes for 1, yards and seven touchdowns.

Brady was also aided by the healthy return of Gronkowski, who had played just eight games in the previous season, finishing this year with 69 catches for 1, yards and eight scores. Receiver Danny Amendola added 61 receptions for yards, as well as another yards returning punts. He also caught 32 passes for yards and two touchdowns and added yards and another touchdown returning kickoffs.

Rex Burkhead chipped in all-purpose yards, 30 receptions, and eight touchdowns. In passing situations, the team relied heavily on running back James White , who caught 56 passes for yards and rushed for on the ground.

These backs were aided by the blocking of fullback James Develin , who earned his first Pro Bowl selection. On special teams, kicker Stephen Gostkowski ranked second in the NFL with points and fourth in field goals made with 37, while veteran special team ace Matthew Slater earned his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl selection. The Patriots also had a superb secondary, led by cornerbacks Malcolm Butler two interceptions, three forced fumbles and Stephon Gilmore two interceptions, 47 solo tackles , as well as safeties Devin McCourty 97 combined tackles, one interception, one fumble recovery , Patrick Chung 84 tackles, one interception, two fumble recoveries and Duron Harmon four interceptions.

In the divisional round, they defeated the Tennessee Titans 35—14, as Brady passed for yards and three touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski was injured in the game with a concussion , leaving his status for the Super Bowl in doubt. Despite the Vikings scoring on their opening drive, the Eagles defense held them to three punts, two turnovers on downs, two interceptions, and one lost fumble in their remaining drives of the game. Meanwhile, Foles had a great game, in which he completed 26 of 33 passes for yards and three touchdowns.

Only one player, Patriots starting quarterback Tom Brady , remained on either roster from that contest.
