When fans attack: how cities handle events like Super Bowl Sunday

Multiple Philadelphia Eagles players are dealing with illness this week as the team prepares for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the New England Patriots.

"I can just find a good space for me to be in for the day on my way to work in the morning", Brady said. "I understood the ultimate goal was to win the game and that was definitely heavily on my mind". "I think the bottom line really is more the matchups on these two teams". If the Super Bowl had been played last Sunday, Gronkowski wouldn't have been available. Wake is coming off double-digit sack totals in back-to-back seasons for the first time in his career, lending fuel to the notion that, as Adam Gase puts it, "he is a freak of nature". "I don't think it had anything to do with us being out here".

Due to the added pageantry and ceremony of the Super Bowl, teams will need to sit through 40 minutes of downtime during pregame (more than double the usual time) and 30 minutes at halftime (around 18 minutes more than usual).

McNabb only led Philadelphia to one Super Bowl appearance, though the Eagles almost played in the game several times with the quarterback and head coach Andy Reid at the helm.

Despite having an identical record and each having the top seed in their respective playoff fields, the Eagles are still a decided underdog against the defending Super Bowl champions, and that is fair to suggest going in.

After opening as a seven-point favorite, Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots are now just 4.5-point favorites over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The day-shift supervisor thought the test was aimed at outgoing night-shift workers and was unprepared to supervise the test. However, all other SWP members clearly heard, " EXERCISE, EXERCISE, EXERCISE " at the beginning and end of the drill.

- Philadelphia has allowed just 17 points this postseason, the fewest of any team that has played multiple playoff games. Not against a team that always seems to come up with the one play everyone is left talking about.

Yet Belichick's legendary laser-like focus and attention to detail is squarely on the Philadelphia Eagles as he hunts his sixth Super Bowl title in eight appearances in his 18 years as the Patriots' head coach. He knows pressuring Brady without having to blitz is the key to success.

"The plan was to obviously get cleared", Gronkowski said. "I wish they could all share in this.' Or, if they are still here, they're all gonna share in it together".

The Patriots come into the Minneapolis showdown as defending champions having beaten the Atlanta Falcons a year ago. They beat us 34-31 in overtime. No one's dying, ' Kendricks said. "He's got a spirit about him that's really unmatched, that no one can really duplicate".

Disclosure: NBC Sports is televising Sunday's Super Bowl. But if he plays (and it's looking like he will), he represents a massive boost for the Pats' offence - and too big a problem for the Eagles' defence to overcome, no matter how accomplished they've been this season.
