Eagles might have a formula for beating Brady
get in line with the other 223 victims, including playoffs, who have tried,Well, but failed, to beat Brady.

 have had a modicum of success against the quarterback known by many as "GOAT,The Eagles," as in "greatest of all time.", however

 isn't good. And they also lost their only postseason matchup against Brady,The Eagles are 1-3 against Brady in his career. That, in the Super Bowl 13 years ago. They'll get another crack at him Sunday in the Super Bowl in Minneapolis., of course

 who was a mere 27 years old then and not quite known as GOAT ,In that first game, threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns., Brady

But look at it this way: It's not as bad as the Buffalo Bills' 3-28 record against Brady. Brady also has a much better record against his most bitter AFC rivals. Brady is 10-3 against the Indianapolis Colts, mostly against Ben Roethlisberger., going back to the days against Peyton Manning. He's 8-2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers

In fact, the New York Giants are 2-0 against Brady in the Super Bowl., there are only two NFL teams with a winning record against Brady – the Carolina Panthers at 3-2 and the Seattle Seahawks at 2-1. And of course

So there are things the Eagles can look at and emulate from the teams who have had success against Brady.

"It’s a copycat league, how they beat them, and what’s consistent, and what we gotta do," defensive end Brandon Graham said. "We try to see what works against him, and when people beat them, and where are we as a team to be able to do that."

"[Defensive coordinator Jim] Schwartz is a smart guy and we trust him to put us in the best position possible, we gotta execute."," Graham said. "Whatever he calls

 the Pack,But they won't get much help from when Eagles coach Doug Pederson was on the Green Bay Packers in 2002. That year, led by Brett Favre, went to New England and beat up on the Patriots 28-10. In that game, Brady threw three interceptions. 

000 passes since he was a sixth-round pick in the 2000 draft.,Brady has thrown three or more interceptions in a game seven times in his career. That might seem like a lot. But it isn't when you consider that Brady has played in 253 games and thrown nearly 9

 gosh. Where did we play?" Pederson said. "I honestly do not remember. I'm sorry.","2002? Oh

" he replied. "You stumped me.","Good question

 2015 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The Eagles, under former coach Chip Kelly,But the Eagles can look back at their most recent history against Brady. Their last game against the Patriots was a 35-28 win on Dec. 6, had a defense much, much worse than it is now. They came into that game at 4-7 while the Patriots were 10-1.

Yet the Eagles broke open a tie game at halftime and took a 35-14 lead early in the fourth quarter before Brady nearly rallied the Patriots back.

 one of them returned 99 yards for a touchdown by Malcolm Jenkins.,Brady went 29 of 56 for 312 yards and three touchdowns that day. He also threw two interceptions

 and an 83-yard punt return by Darren Sproles.,The Eagles also scored on a blocked punt that was returned 24 yards for a touchdown by Najee Goode

"There was some special stuff that happened in that game, ‘Man, they still almost came back. You gotta play 60 minutes against them boys. We were up for a second, we gotta get off the field.’ We know they’re going to bring their best,Womens Brandon Graham Jersey," Graham said. "And them boys, and the next thing you know is,Authentic Nigel Bradham Jersey, and we know they don’t quit."

 the Atlanta Falcons led the Patriots 28-3 in the third quarter and lost.,That's obvious. Last year in the Super Bowl

 the Jacksonville Jaguars led the Patriots 20-10 early in the fourth quarter and lost.,In the AFC Championship game last Sunday

Brady,Authentic Jason Peters Jersey, has never been the most mobile quarterback. And that's certainly true now that he's 40 years old.,Womens Brandon Brooks Jersey, of course

"What makes him so unique is he gets rid of the ball fast, it’s going to come down to the front four guys getting after the quarterback and making him uncomfortable in the pocket."," Cox said. "He’s not going to take a lot of hits. He knows where’ he’s going when the ball is snapped. As I say every week

 for example,Jenkins,Womens Rodney McLeod Jersey, keeps a notebook on every opponent. He was asked what he has on the Patriots. Jenkins said he wouldn't go into detail, but then he did, sort of.

"The obvious things that the Patriots do, their formations, is they create matchups that they want, and they’ll spread you out to take advantage of a wide receiver on a linebacker, probably better than anybody," Jenkins said. "They get creative with their personnel, a tight end on a backer that they don’t like.

 so you’ve always gotta be on your p’s and q’s,"Brady is one of those quarterbacks that you’ve got to continuously be able to adjust to. They’ll go back at halftime and make the proper adjustments. They’ll do it mid-drive, be able to adjust., mid-quarter

 three drives in you’ve got to throw it out because they’ve all been changed. So we’ve got to have that flexibility on defense.","So everything that my book might say going into a game

 that the formula for beating Brady and the Patriots goes something like this: Score at least one touchdown on defense and special teams; get pressure on Brady and force him into turnovers,It would seem, which rarely happens; get a sizeable lead; then hang on for dear life., Womens Jason Peters Jersey,then

 the Eagles can use Alshon Jeffery's suggestion and treat the Patriots as just another opponent.,If that doesn't work

"I think the Patriots win by 17. But if the Eagles win,Womens Nigel Bradham Jersey,' Wahlberg said on the Rich Eisen podcast. "If it was anybody else I would be devastated., I am telling you I would be fine

 having played Vince Papale,"How excited I am that the Eagles are in the Super Bowl, having played an Eagle, having become an honorary Philadelphian, been welcomed by the Philadelphia fans as one of their own. I have made five movies in Philadelphia and I predicted the Eagles would make it to the Super Bowl. It is my Patriots and Eagles and I couldnt be happier. I am very excited. It is win-win."

The symbol of their playoff run has been a rubber dog mask, the jailed rapper whose harsh sentence is emblematic of the broken criminal justice system., but the soundtrack of the Eagles' surge to the Super Bowl comes courtesy of Meek Mill

 his music has been omnipresent throughout the Eagles’ march to the biggest game in sports.,While Mill is stuck in Pennsylvania’s Chester State Correctional Institution

 it pumped through the speakers at Lincoln Financial Field. It looked like the entire team was dancing to Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares" during warmups,The Birds have been playing the tunes in team meetings and in practice, Authentic Rodney McLeod Jersey,a scene that set the tone for their annihilation of the Vikings., and last week before the NFC title game

 the team's playoff run has been equally encouraging for Mill.,While his music fuels the Eagles

" Mill said in his statement this week. "It really lifted my spirit to hear the team rally around my songs because that's why I make music — to inspire others and bring people together.,"I'm so proud of my Eagles for making the Super Bowl and representing the city of Philadelphia

" he said. "That's why I'm confident my guys are going to beat the Patriots and bring the Super Bowl trophy to Philly.","The Eagles have also motivated me with the way they've overcome tough situations and injuries to succeed this year

 but activists feel Brinkley's sentence is harsh,Mill's case has attracted national attention. The 30-year-old Philly native was sentenced to up to four years in prison last fall for a probation violation tied to a 2008 gun and drug charge. Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley cited a failed drug test, and possibly the product of a personal grudge., Mill's failure to adhere to a travel restriction and two other arrests when sentencing him

Jenkins and teammates Torrey Smith, with Mills carrying a sign that said "We support you Meek." Jenkins also addressed the crowd., Jalen Mills

" Kaepernick posted on Instagram in November. "This criminal (in)justice system,Authentic Brandon Graham Jersey, ripe with racial discrimination,Womens Brent Celek Jersey, and targets young Black men for arrest at a young age, stigmatizes, profiles, having its roots in their hyper-policed neighborhoods that they are raised in,Authentic Brent Celek Jersey,"Disproportionately America's prisons are filled with Black bodies, and sadly extending into what should be a safe space-the classroom, via the school to prison pipeline.

 but there needs to also be action taken around abolishing the racialized norms of injustice that can lead to Meek Mill serving 2-4 years in prison for non-violent parole violations,"Meek Mill is a victim of this systemic oppression. Yes, and Brock Turner only serving 3 months in prison for three felony counts of sexual assault.",Authentic Brandon Brooks Jersey, there needs to be action surrounding sentencing reform
