Alright everybody, here we are: Super Bowl 52. While we’re sure most of you, like us, are absolutely tired of seeing Tom Brady and Bill Belichick compete for yet another Lombardi Trophy, at the end of the day, it’s still the Super Bowl. You know, the biggest day in sports. The Big Game. The Colossal Showdown. The Sunday, Sunday, Sunday Eagles fans have been waiting for since… well, the last time they played the Patriots in the Super Bowl back in 2005.
Now, while we all get ready to see if backup quarterback Nick Foles can lead Philadelphia past the heavily favorited New England Patriots, we reached out to a handful of sports-savvy artists to see who they think will take it all this Sunday.
To see what Of Mice & Men’s Phil Manansala, August Burns Red’s JB Brubaker, The Word Alive’s Telle Smith and more had to say about Super Bowl 52, be sure to look below. Afterwards, make sure to tweet us @TheNoise and let us know who you have winning!
Phil Manansala (Of Mice & Men)
My super bowl prediction is very easy: the New England Patriots are going to win!!! We are watching the greatest team in history! PATS NATION! The score will be 34-17 Patriots! TB12!!!!
JB Brubaker (August Burns Red)
The Eagles front four will harass Tom Brady early and often keeping the Pats’ offense off-balance all night long. Meanwhile, Nick Foles will throw two TD passes and capitalize on a short field opportunity created by an Eagles strip sack. Eagles will stun the Pats, 24-13.
Telle Smith (The Word Alive)
This year’s Super Bowl is hard for me to call for one simple reason… I loathe both teams beyond comprehension [laughs]. I think it’s going to come down to Nick Foles having to play the game of his career and I just don’t see it happening. Unfortunately, Brady wins again overly securing his place in history as the best QB to ever play. Pats 28–17.
Matt Gallucci (My Ticket Home)
The greatest team on earth and in history will absolutely destroy the Pats. Tom Brady will blame it on his hurt little finger and Foles will make him retire after he scores eight touchdowns. If Wentz was playing, I’d score the game at 107-0 but I’ll have to go with 50-3 EAGLES!
Elijah Witt (Cane Hill)
The Patriots will win in a game that’s predictably sided for them. For Christ’s sake, it’s the Patriots Bowl at this point. 17-3 Patriots, unfortunately.
Kenneth Downey (Too Close To Touch)
Since I don’t actually know who is playing in the Super Bowl this year, my prediction is that people will eat pizza and drink shitty beer.
