“The Philadelphia Eagles will overcome playoff inex­pe­rience to beat the aging New England Patriots.”

Eagles — 34

Patriots — 31

Keith Otterbein
Hillsdale Head Football Coach

“Patriots will win because of the QB – Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T.

Also a factor – the Patriots have been there, Eagles have not.”

Patriots — 31

Eagles — 17

“Being from Pitts­burgh, how can I root for Philadelphia?  Being a Prepneck from the Mid-Atlantic, how can I root for the Patriots?  The Appalachian/Whiskey Rebellion/tribal affil­i­a­tions just run too deep. I shall simply take the ladies’ option and hide out in the kitchen making protein- and fat-laden hors d’oeuvres.

With Ter­rible Towel tear-stained cheek, I predict

Eagles — 21 and Patriots — 17.”

Brendan Rohlfs
Junior and member of the Hillsdale College football team

“Nick Foles will step up and have a good game, but Tom Brady will find a way to win per usual.”

Patriots — 38

Eagles — 30
