The Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots will square off for Super Bowl LII this Sunday.
In the aftermath of the Deflategate controversy and his fifth title, Brady responded with a brilliant age-40 season, a historic feat and one that will likely earn him his third MVP award Saturday at NFL Honors. In winning a sixth Super Bowl this Sunday, Brady would raise the G.O.A.T. bar higher, approaching Michael Jordan-esque levels of legend never before experienced in modern football, an untouchable status of godly proportions. What’s at stake, what’s left to prove this weekend is a legacy, not just in the sport of football and not just Brady’s. The Patriots, led by the man-boy wonder, can reach Yankees-like pinnacles in the minds of global sports fans — impossible dominance in a league designed to discourage it.
