ON SUNDAY evening the two top seeds in the NFL take to the field for Super Bowl 52 in Minnesota.

The defending champions and AFC Championship winners, the New England Patriots, take on the NFC champions, the Philadelphia Eagles. 

The Eagles set the pace this year but are still without their talented young quarterback Carson Wentz due to injury and will start with backup Nick Foles.

They dominated the Minnesota Vikings, winning the Championship game by a huge scoreline, but even with an injury concern to star tight end Rob Gronkowski, due to concussion, you can not underestimate Patriots franchise QB Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick taking home another Superbowl ring.

So can the Patriots make another come back like last year to win their sixth Lombardi Trophy or will the Eagles win their first Super Bowl?

We asked some of the Swindon Storm team what they thought of the upcoming event.

Like they did against the Jaguars, Brady and Belichick will figure it out and will put the Patriots ahead with his array of targets.

Foles isn't leading a pass-heavy comeback challenge against New England's improving defence. So Patriots will come away with their sixth Super Bowl win.

The Eagles I feel will get off to an early lead, with the D holding the Patriots for the first half, so Eagles going into half-time with the lead. 

But as we all know Patriots are a fourth-quarter team and Belichick and Brady have been in this position many times.

The ability to score from a varied roster will come into play for the Pats and the second half will all be about the dynasty.

So it pains me to say Patriots claim their sixth Lombardi Trophy.

Eagles will take a narrow three-point lead into half-time but the Patriots will come out and shut down whatever their strength in the first half was and will take his pick of which running back will lead the charge, cementing the Patriots' spot at the top of NFL

Despite his game-winning deflection against the Jags, Pats cornerback Gilmore will give Foles an easy pass to Torrey Smith, who will take it in for six.

The Eagles defence will concedded two Danny Amendola touchdowns in the air and rushing touchdown from Dion Lewis.

The Patriots will get a defensive touchdown from Devin McCourty and the Eagles will attempt to comeback with an Jay Ajayi touchdown and a late field goal from Jake Elliot.

Sean Harper, senior team wide receiver running back

Eagles' formidable front seven get lots of pressure early doors but the Pats figure out how to beat them with quick passes and a no-huddle offense to turn the tide.

An angry Rob Gronkowski shows why he's the most dominant force in football at tight end after being knocked out during the AFC Championship game with two touchdowns.

Miles McCarthy, Youth player

Eagles will put pressure on Tom Brady early in the game, getting to a half-time lead.

Then the nerves about winning their first ever Super Bowl will set in. 

From then the Patriots will get their noses in front and turn the screw. 

There may be a late flurry of points scored but the Eagles never regain the lead.

The Patriots will have the lead in the first quarter and first half of the second. Eagles will make a couple of passing touchdowns to then claim the lead and hold that until the fourth quarter. Tom Brady will then lead the Patriots to another comeback Super Bowl win.
