Brady hooked up with Danny Amendola for a four-yard touchdown pass with 2:48 remaining to complete the Pats' comeback in a 24-20 win over the Jaguars in the AFC championship game at Foxborough.
Less than five minutes into Sunday's championship game, it was looking as if Thielen and the Vikings had a chance to become the first team to play a Super Bowl in their home stadium. They got points Sunday against the Vikings and won, and going into the Super Bowl, the underdog Birds are getting points again, opening as the biggest underdog in the big game since 2009.
Foles, who took over for the injured Carson Wentz in Week 14, lit up the Vikings' top-ranked scoring defense to the tune of 352 yards, three touchdowns and a 141.4 passer rating on 26-of-33 passing. It's only fitting that it was the defense that has carried the Eagles to the Super Bowl.

"I was just taking it one play at a time", he said. Starting his 36th playoff game, Brady shook off an injury to his right hand and the loss of top target Rob Gronkowski to rally the Patriots to their record 10th Super Bowl appearance.

The play of WR Alshon Jeffrey and TE Zack Ertz aids the passing game for the Eagles.
But the Eagles tied it up after forcing the game's first turnover when Chris Long hit Keenum's arm as he was throwing. It's a rematch of Super Bowl 39 in 2004 that the Patriots won 24-21. The Eagles proved they had Super Bowl talent in 2017.
"I felt like we were moving the ball OK, and then we had the interception and we had the strip sack with the fumble", Zimmer said.
Here's an early look at the Patriots-Eagles Super Bowl matchup. Standing in their way, the man who beat them 13 years ago, Tom Brady. Before halftime, the Eagles had already scored a rushing touchdown, a passing touchdown, a defensive touchdown and a field goal.
