Super Bowl matchups to watch

It’s Super Bowl week! Time to grab your wings and beer and get prepared for one of the biggest parties of the year.

But enough about the parties, we’re here to read about the game!

I will highlight a few key matchups to keep your eye on Sunday as the New England Patriots attempt to win back-to-back Super Bowls and the Philadelphia Eagles attempt to win their first.

Ertz had an impressive year for the Eagles catching 74 passes for 824 yards and eight touchdowns. He’s caught 11 of 13 targets for 125 yards in the playoffs. The Patriots defense has been pretty good against the tight end, ranking 11th in the NFL allowing about 4.5 catches for 44 yards.

In fact, I personally admire everything that you have come to accomplish in your football career.
