This Sunday our Philadelphia Eagles take on the New England Patriots, and there's a lot at stake! This happens to be the first time the two teams will meet in a regular season game since the Eagles beat the Patriots at Super Bowl 52.
Now in a new interview, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady admits he's still not over that big loss.
"You assume I'm over it? Come on now. That's a lot of mental scar tissue from that year. That was a tough game. In a lot of ways, we learned from that year and we came back stronger the next year. We won the Super Bowl in '18. I think everything is a matter of perspective and when you play in that game and you play great teams, you're not going to win them all. This is not the Harlem Globetrotters vs. the Washington Generals. This is all about tough competition against the best teams. They deserved it that year, and now a couple years later we get a chance to play the organization again. We've had a lot changes, they've had a lot of changes. It's totally different circumstances. Huge game for us. Big game for them. The better team is going to win."
I mean you can't blame him for still not being over it, and he's right that a lot has changed for both organizations since that time! Let's hope it's another great game on Sunday with our Birds taking home another win!
