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.

It is worth noting, given the battle of optics between some National Football League players and the 45th president, there could be - at least in theory - a chance a Super Bowl-winning team that isn't fully embracing a certain type of politics might not be invited to the White House at all.

"What? Let's talk about distractions", Brady joked when he was asked about the series Saturday.

During a press conference prior to Sunday's game, Brady deflected questions about his injured hand, leading many to wonder how seriously it was injured. "So, I like that no distractions part".

Though this will be Brady's eighth trip to the Super Bowl, the 40-year-old said he still has an appreciation for what it takes to be playing at this point of the season. So, like I sat there - I was like, 'Oh God, I'm gonna retweet this because everybody thinks I'm old and washed up...but I'm gonna retweet this [expletive]. I think the city of Minneapolis is in good spirits.
