Patriots, Eagles ready for Super Bowl showdown

Two possessions later, Brady passed to Amendola again to put New England ahead 24-20 with 2:48 left.

The Patriots have built a dynasty with five Super Bowls in the Brady-Belichick era, but not every game has been a cakewalk, and the combination of dozens of postseason games and the most clutch QB of all time has led to several come-from-behind victories.

After losing their first-string quarterback Carson Wentz on December 10 to a season ending injury, backup quarterback Nick Foles, who has carried his team since then, threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns sending the Eagles' to their first Super Bowl appearance since the 2004 season.

"Points are a product of playing really good football down after down".

Brady, who finished 26 of 38 for 290 yards and two scores, was without tight end Rob Gronkowski in the second half.

"I was proud of the way we fought", Brady said after engineering his 11th playoff comeback. Brady explained on the "Kirk and Callahan" radio show on Monday that the Patriots routinely practiced and discussed throws to the back of the end zone, noting that he threw it high to keep it away from the defense.

"Everyone in that room right now, everyone in that locker room, is thinking, 'what could we have done a better job of to win the game?" "And so now that gives us a chance to play another one, so congratulations".

It started earlier in the week, when Brady suffered an injury to his right hand - his throwing hand - during a handoff in practice while preparing for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

"I understand you're all going to let us play, but we know they're going to try to instigate stuff". In December 2015, in one of Chip Kelly's final games as Eagles head coach, they went up to Foxboro and beat the Patriots, 35-28, scoring touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams. "I don't know if I ever will".

Do that, and Tom Brady and company may erase all arguments about the greatest National Football League franchise ever.

Coughlin pounded his fist when the Jaguars drew the delay-of-game penalty after the timeout. He completed his first six passes for 57 yards to march the Patriots down the field.
