Patriots don't need any help but they tend to get it

New England Patriots strong safety Patrick Chung #23 warms up for practice at Gillette. Thursday

Patriots' Tom Brady practices, Rob Gronkowski still out

"Reddit user Frontstunderel, who's traveling to the game from Philadelphia, shared an email they received informing them that their Airbnb booking was being cancelled due to the policy".

The Eagles have certainly been effective in putting the squeeze on opponents this season.

Gronkowski is prohibited from conducting interviews with reporters while in the concussion protocol, and when a reporter approached him Sunday and asked if he got good work in, Gronkowski smiled.

"I'm still working on it", Brady said.

"The Eagles have a tremendous offensive line", he said. They had seven defensive linemen record at least 400 snaps this season, the most in the NFL. Not only has a documentary called "Tom vs Time" debuted, but a nation found out that he will be the oldest non-kicker to play in a Super Bowl.

"I always say I think Coach [Bill] Belichick does a great job kind of getting the guys ready, and I feel like one of them", said Brady. It's about eight, nine. "Fletcher Cox is an incredible player, but they're all really talented, they all play well together, they've got a great scheme, mixes in well with their coverages and what they do".

The last time these teams faced off in 2015, the Eagles had 10 quarterback hits on Brady and sacked him four times in a 35-28 Eagles win.

He pointed to Brady's habit of making a few plays every game that swing momentum and Belichick's knack for coaxing his counterparts into beating themselves - like the Indianapolis Colts did with their fake punt fiasco in 2015. Everything's going to be written about it, has been written about it, talked about it, discussed, debated and it's about us.

"Doug is going to do what got us to this point", right tackle Lane Johnson said.

This is when Brady leaped beyond the Joe Montanas and Otto Grahams of pro football to establish himself as the measuring stick at his position. If only to avoid the mistakes they've made in the past. For comparison, top quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan each finished with completion rates of 42 percent or below when pressured. But it was Brady finding Amendola in the back of the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown that drew the Pats within three, 24-21.
