52.5 percent to 45.

Opponents tend to freak out against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick just when they’re about to conquer the New England Patriots’ dynastic duo. The Philadelphia Eagles swear they won’t fall into that trap if they have the chance in Super Bowl 52.

The pair have built such a reputation of coming through in the clutch that foes often outthink themselves with conservative Taven Bryan Jersey Jaguars , uncommon or unconventional calls against the five-time champs.

Think Seattle in Super Bowl 49 and Atlanta in Super Bowl 51.

The Patriots have built an extreme confidence through five Super Bowl-winning seasons under Brady and Belichick and are disciplined when other teams get discombobulated, like last month when they sniffed out Ben Roethlisberger’s fake spike and intercepted him in the end zone, reshaping the AFC playoff picture.

”You’re basically talking about experience and knowing that no matter what the score is, it’s not insurmountable,” said ex-NFL quarterback Joe Theismann.

He pointed to Brady’s habit of making a few plays every game that swing momentum and Belichick’s knack for coaxing his counterparts into beating themselves – like the Indianapolis Colts did with their fake punt fiasco in 2015.

”The New England Patriots find a way to make a play when no one else seems to be able to do that,” Theismann said. ”Teams that haven’t been in that situation don’t really understand the ability of New England teams to be able to overcome darn near anything.”

Like the 25-point second-half deficit Brady rallied the Patriots from in last year’s Super Bowl or the 10-point fourth-quarter hole he dug them out of against Jacksonville in the AFC championship last week.

”You’ve got to play a damn near perfect game against them,” lamented Jaguars safety Jarrod Wilson.

Therein lies the trap.

The Jaguars were on the verge of knocking off New England when a flurry of follies in Foxborough aided Brady’s two-TD rally that sent the seemingly impervious Patriots back to another Super Bowl.

”You can never have a safe lead with (No.) 12 at the helm,” Jaguars safety Tashaun Gipson said. ”… That’s Tom Brady, the greatest to ever lace up the cleats at the quarterback position.”

And Belichick, arguably the best to ever roam the sideline.

The Eagles swear they’re not going to give the Patriots any help next Sunday in Minneapolis.

”You know what? If I make this all about them, we’re in trouble,” coach Doug Pederson said. ”Honestly. We’re in trouble. Everything’s going to be written about it, has been written about it, talked about it Saints Tre'Quan Smith Jersey , discussed, debated and it’s about us. And I’ll keep saying that. It’s about what we do and how well we execute and I can’t worry about that.”

The Eagles (15-3), who statistically can make the case for being the best opponent Brady and Belichick have ever faced in the Super Bowl, don’t see themselves getting out of their comfort zone against New England (15-3).

”Doug is going to do what got us to this point,” right tackle Lane Johnson said. ”Just because you’re in a big stage doesn’t mean you have to do anything out of the ordinary to make bigger plays. Don’t make the moment bigger than what it is.”

The Patriots may need no assistance but that hasn’t stopped teams from helping them out like Jacksonville did last week with a delay penalty coming out of a timeout and a rushed punt that essentially gave Brady an extra timeout before halftime.

”I think why the Patriots are so good is because they capitalize off people making those mistakes,” Johnson said. ”They don’t make mistakes, hardly. They’re well-coached. You don’t necessarily have to be the most talented team. You saw last year they weren’t the most talented team. Yet, they’re the best team because they function together well and they’re coached well.”

New England safety Duron Harmon said the Patriots never panic like so many other teams because they rehearse adversity so well and so often in practice.

”We go over every type of situation that you can think of,” Harmon said.

Theismann said Belichick is simply the best at teaching ”if somebody’s going to beat us, they’re going to have to beat us; we’re not going to beat ourselves.”

”What New England does is New England preaches discipline and understanding your job,” Theismann said, singling out lieutenants Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia in addition to Belichick, who, along with his personnel assistants Mike McGlinchey Jersey 49ers , identifies coachable players who fit in.

”Think about it: You never see Bill Belichick run up the sideline and call a timeout because the time clock’s running out,” Theismann said. ”You don’t see Bill’s players making those kids of errors. I mean, I was very fortunate to play for Joe Gibbs and Joe was the same type of game manager, where he was aware and he made me aware of all the possible circumstances and situations that you deal with.

”For example, when you’re coming out of your own end zone, if you’re backed up inside your own 3-yard line, it’s a great time to run a hard count because you’re only going to get a yard and a-half penalty. Instead of first-and-10, it’s going to be first-and-11. But you do have the possibility of making it first-and-5.

”There is a game within the game that the Patriots play better than anybody.”


OAKLAND, Calif. — By simply uttering a total of six words, rival point guards Chris Paul and Stephen Curry both insisted they’ll be up to speed Sunday night when the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors meet in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.

The two top guns in the West split games at Houston, with Golden State, the defending NBA champion, prevailing 119-106 in Game 1 before the Rockets, the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs Nathan Shepherd Color Rush Jersey , got even with a 127-105 thrashing in Game 2.

The best-of-seven series shifts to Oakland, where the Warriors have won 15 straight playoff games, equaling the Chicago Bulls in 1990-91 as the longest streak in NBA history.

The clubs met just once in Oakland during the regular season, with the Rockets starting their 67-win campaign with a 122-121 victory on Opening Night.

Neither Paul nor Curry has been a big factor in the first two games of the series that will determine the Western Conference representative in the NBA Finals. The Warriors have advanced to the championship series in each of the last three seasons, winning two titles.

Curry missed Golden State’s 4-1 victory over San Antonio in the first round of the playoffs and then the opener against New Orleans in the second round with a sprained left MCL. He has started the last five games but has been well below his usual high standard in the first two against the Rockets, averaging 17.0 points while missing 11 of 13 3-point shots.

The Rockets also have attacked Curry on defense, prompting many to question the former two-time Most Valuable Player’s health.

“I’m feeling great,” Curry said in the aftermath of the Game 2 loss.

Paul has outscored Curry 39-34 in the series and been more efficient, but also has struggled from long range, shooting just 3 of 12 on 3-pointers.

He was seen limping late in the Game 2 win, during which he was just the Rockets’ fifth-leading scorer, again leading to speculation about a possible calf or Achilles injury afterward.

“I’ll be cool,” he said.

In a duel of the league’s two highest scoring offenses, the team that shot the best prevailed in each of the first two meetings.

With Kevin Durant going 14 of 27 from the field in a 37-point effort Arden Key Jersey Raiders , the Warriors outshot the Rockets 52.5 percent to 45.9 in the Game 1 win.

The Rockets countered in Game 2 with a more balanced approach, with Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Trevor Ariza combining to go 23 of 33, accounting for 68 of Houston’s 127 points in the win. Houston shot 51.1 percent in the win.

The Warriors, who lost just once in four playoff series en route to the championship last year, suffered their third loss of the 2018 postseason in Game 2. They have rebounded to win by a total of 34 points in the game after each of their first two losses.

The Rockets, meanwhile, had the best road record in the NBA during the regular season (31-10), and have won three of four on the road in their first two playoff series.

The Warriors, who held home-court advantage in every series the past three seasons, will be hosting a Game 3 for the first time since 2014. They lost that game 98-96 to the Los Angeles Clippers, with Paul contributing 15 points and 10 assists to the winning effort.
